C++ doesn't come with a GUI. There are many books available for the variety of GUI toolkits. You have to pick the toolkit first, however. Options include wxWidgets, QT, gtkmm, and many others.

I have a question, I have been learning C++ but basically just console programming. I was wondering if anyone can tell me of good books or tutorials on visual programming or windows programing, whatever you want to call it, like dialog boxes and windows, etc. Not sure where to look. Thanks


Start with The Forger's Win32 Tutorial. It's a great place to begin if you're using Windows. If you're using Linux, then go with what WingedPanther said.

The visual studio is pretty good/well reviewed. I like MinGW because I get a consistent interface between it and gcc on Linux.

This is what I think they are:
IDE: Integrated Development Environment- A program like Code::Blocks with features such as guessing what your typing and instant "press of a button" compiling and running.
Compiler: A program such as MinGW that turns code such as C++ into computer language such as binary.
Assembler: A program that puts together code, libraries and other "includes" into one binary file.

Please, write clearly with proper structure. Double spacing makes the text feel un-jointed, Capitalizing Every Word Means People Stop Before Every Word Sub-Consciously Which Is A Pain In The Backside, and use code tags! (The right most styling box).

I have contributed a significant revision to the FAQ for the benefit of the forum for C/C++ coders. If sections appear superfluous or wording unclear (content was adapted without fully revising), the original post can be revised with quality material by CodeCall, for CodeCall. Feel free to discuss and contribute further in this thread.

All new problems require investigation, and so if errors are problems, try to learn as much as you can and report back.

It was explained in your other topic.  It's an array of array.  It's frequently used for an array of strings.

C, C++ is the Basic Language for your Programming prospect and students should have to be perfectly concentrate on this just because next courses 80% based on these Subjects, so my opinion is that just do it from where you want but keep in mind clear your all the concepts and do it by yourself take some projects and work on it. This will help you a lot for sure.

Could someone please tell me how I can run my C++ code using Command prompt? How should I open it, and what I need to write?
And if there are more than one text files in my code including input data, how I can choose one of them to run that one?

Do you know how to open a command prompt?

Do you know how to use the "cd" command to move to the directory your executable is in?
