C++ Question

Is it possible to create programs with buttons, radio buttons, text boxes and so on in C++? I used to study Visual Basic and i found it cool that with little bit of effort you can whip out good looking progs. But in c++ the basic programs look soo old school. And what is C++ used for? I am new to C++ and i want to know this basic fact before i spend more time studying it.

Re: C++ Question

Hi
If you want to easily build User Interface programs ,
you must install Visual Studio .Net
after that you can use ,, C# or Visual basic or Visual c++ ....
in .net you can choose "Windows Application" ..

C++ Question

The easiest and most productive RAD software for me is Borland Builder. Realy fast and powerful for window programming!
C++ is the language of choice for large distributed programs. Using encapsulation, interfaces and name spaces allows teams of programmers to work on sophisticated systems. C++ grows more esotorical with template specializtion heading into uncharted waters. C++ is a progression from C. The language most loved by hard core code freaks. The lowest and the highest of programming poetry.
Visual basic has come a long way in the hands of Microsoft. But Basic is, Basic!

Re: C++ Question

to do what you want with c++ {visual} you simply need to include some active x objects
look in the tools menu of visual c++

i prefer the long way of doing things
but you could try the class wizard to get widgets menus edit controls etc etc....

this way components are included as is most of the c++ code for you

Re: C++ Question

Generally MFC if the quickes way under windows C++ environments. It handles all of the overhead for the creation of the graphical entities, allbeit with some major overhead. Under linux GTK does the same thing.

Re: C++ Question

another way i found was to convert the package to c++
made in visual basic
there are very good tools avalible to do this and then only standard runtimes get used so no redistributables needed

allows you to export c++ source and built c++ versions from visual basic export etc..


https://www.tangiblesoftwaresolutions.com/

lots of these tools float about on emule or edonkey {payed ide}


Iphant {free ide all psp networks & firewall friendly
https://www.lphant.com/index_eng.php


good search features {use a single word }

visual basic is a set of compiled c++ classes made using pure c++ {microsoft c++} in a modular way
so presets a hierachie that has easy choices and boxes fancy controls etc
already there nice and neat draw a box and joint the dots type affair {basic}

so runs heaps slower

Re: C++ Question

C++ is crucial for device driver programming and other OS related stuff.
