Help creating a simple GUI (C++)
« on: Monday, December 09, 2013, 16:26:50 PM »
anyone know anything about creating GUIs for c++ programs? I'm looking to create a simple GUI for a simple tic-tac-toe game. The program itself is easy, but I've never made a GUI before. I'm not sure where to start. There are so many options. I was looking into using Qt or GTK, but I also heard Visual Studio also has something for GUIs. What's the best option?

Most people I know use VS, but why C++? You make a windows app?

It's C++ because that's what The University of Michigan teaches first in their CIS program. That's what I have to use. I use VS for coding but it seems that a lot of people suggest external stuff like Qt for creating a GUI within VS. I'm just not really sure what the best option is.

I would check stackoverflow or hop into irc. I use irc all the time for javascript/php help so I'm sure they have some good channels for c++

Implying C++ can only make GUI window's app's?

If using strictly windows http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms632679%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

if you want multi-platform , go with QT

& if you want I have a source code of a tic tac toe game i wrote in c++ that has a GUI based on windows api functions

That would be cool to look over. Don't worry, it's not actually for an assignment, I just want to start with GUI sooner rather than later.
