Using ClassWizard

Hello,

I am a beginner who has just created a simple program by manually creating the workspace, .cpp and .h files, and then compiling (in other words, I have not used AppWizard).
The program runs fine.

However, I now want to use ClassWizard to add classes etc..  I find that this option on my menu is greyed-out, and I cannot find out how to activate it.

How do I access ClassWizard with applications not built with AppWizard??

All help appreciated,

TrimTrom

This may not be the most helpful of answers but I would seriously consider creating a new App using AppWizard and then adding your files to the project.
It'll save you a lot of hassle I suspect.

Hi,

  You said that you are a beginner in your question.  So, I would give you the advice that using ClassWizard without generating your project with AppWizard is going to be too complex for you and your gains from doing so will be small.  Go ahead and use AppWizard to start out.  You will learn faster and easier than starting from scratch.  AppWizard doesn't do to bad of a job creating MFC applications.  I really think that not using AppWizard would be a mistake for a beginner, or most experts for that matter, lots of luck,

I have just found the answer I have been looking for:  to activate the ClassWizard, just add any type of resource.

Cheers,
