Creating a GUI

Ok, this is probably a really dumb question, but how do i go about making a GUI with a C++ program. I can do text based apps ok, how do i convert it to a gui.

Thanks

Brendan

    The only programs i can make at the moment have a purely text input and display only text. I want to be able to display pictures, have buttons to click, pop up dialog boxes, etc.

    [blue]Then you need Win32 API book - preferably Charles Petzold.

    If you have VC++ - when creating a new project - specify that you need [b]Win32 Application[/b] and not [b]Win32 Console Application[/b].[/blue]
