Posted 14 May 2012Hi, MFC and WinAPI are different.
From Microsoft Foundation Class Library - Wikipedia
QuoteThe Microsoft Foundation Class Library (also Microsoft Foundation Classes or MFC) is a library that wraps portions of the Windows API in C++ classes, ...
Couple of WinAPI tutorials :-
theForger's Win32 API Programming Tutorial
Winapi (C Win32 API, No MFC) tutorial
Thank YOU Thank YOU. I just booked marked both of those sites. Also thanks for clearing up MFC and Win32API. Again my ignorance just shined through. Most of my programming exp has been on PHP but I am moving towards developing for the desktop.
I chose C because I really enjoy linux and I want to start kernel developing soon after picking up the basics. However a friend asked me to help him create a program for windows so I figured I would stay with C since that is what I was using. But as you can see I have clearly gotten in over my head.
But I digress and again thank you for setting me straight and not making me feel like an idiot.
Posted 14 May 2012Did you create the program as a Win32 Project?
Creating Win32-Based Applications (C++)
Not Really. I just created it using n notepad then compilied it from the command line. However after watching a few videos online I did find out how to use VC++ 2010 to create c projects.
I am starting to get the feeling that most people don't use C for creating desktop applications. I say this because I can't seem to find a whole lot on the internet about creating desktop apps using MFC and C. Everything I find always seems to point to using C++
Posted 14 May 2012Found a solution but I am not sure why it worked.
The solution was to add
right under #include <windows.h>
However can someone explain to me what this means? Also using the cl.exe I tried LINK /out:Samplewindow.exe Samplewindow.obj User32.LIB which also seems to work.
Posted 31 Oct 2011I would say my exact reason for doing self contained scripts was to cut down on the number of .php pages.
then you might be interested in the Front Controller Pattern.
I must say that I really like the Front Controller Pattern. I never really thought if using it because I have never built anything that would require an MVC framework. However using a part from the mvc, I can really see the benefits. Thanks Dormilich for information. Really helpful and has a lot of great use for me.

Interesting point I never really thought of doing it that way. I would say my exact reason for doing self contained scripts was to cut down on the number of .php pages. But at the same time this causes pages to become really complex and long. I may actually try this out.
