Hi guys, I have a very basic question.
I've managed to figure out how to setup a form. It has a button which opens the open file dialog to select a file. Now I want to do some processing on that file when I click a "GO" button.
Dumb question: where do I put all the code that I've written to process that file? Do I stick it in Form1.h in the button_Click event handler? This is kind of awkward as it is a long bit of code and seems out of place in this file.
What I'd like to do is call a function like processFile() that I put in the program.cpp file VisualC++ created for me (the file with main() in it). But, when I put my processFile there and #include
"program.cpp" in Form1.h, I get all sorts of namespace errors. I admit I don't quite understand all this .net type stuff, but I am trying to learn.
If I get my code to live in an appropriate .cpp file, can I access things like form1->textBox1->Text from there?
There is no form1.cpp file either, should there be?
Apologies for this very basic question, I tried to search, but couldn't find anything on it. I found a lot of help setting up my form, but not actually using it to do anything useful.
Thanks in Advance
