Creating a GUI in C++

Posted 20 August 2008 - 07:16 PM

Hello everybody. I recently finished learning C++ and was wondering how to create GUIs in this language. I can make a simple window, but I want more. How do you make a menu bar where it says File Edit Ect. With the little menu that pops up.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. :)

Base on your post, I recommend you to play around with Win32 API if you are using Windows as your main platform.

There are numerous tutorials on this topic... Try googling it.

He has a Linux symbol under his name, which suggests he won't be able to use the Win32 API. :P

I can't recommend anything, since I've never worked in Linux.

And you can never "finish" learning a programming language, everyone here is still learning~

First result for "linux gui c++" was this:

I use Linux and Windows. Sorry I forgot to mention it.

Where can I learn Win32?

Check the pinned topic, "List of C++ resources" it's got a few links to Win32 programming tutorials. :)
