I've just gotten started with GUI's in c++, and I am looking for a good beginner's book to help explain things. I have read a good bit into the forger's tutorial
and I like what I see, but I am looking for a little more explanation on some aspects. In the Forger's tutorial, I hit a bit of a brick wall when he started going into standard controls...
I am no stranger to programming, but I just started (semi-) seriously studying C/C++ over this past summer. Needless to say, I don't see how any book (for me) on the win32 API can be too "beginner". I'm looking for something that covers all the basics of gui programming and includes clear and concise explanations.
I'm not totally clear on all the different ways to construct GUIs with c++, or windows for that matter, but just to be clear I'm looking for c++ gui's with the win32 API.
This is a bit of a side note, but the reason I'm looking into learning GUI programming is because I'm working on a sudoku
solver in c++ and I'd like to implement a GUI. Obviously the greater part of the gui will be composed of a sudoku grid with text boxes or selection boxes for the user to enter numbers. Those numbers must be stored in an array that will be passed to the solution algorithm. If there's anything in addition to reading a book that you think I will need to accomplish this, please say so!
Thanks in advance...
