I have learned most of C++.  I have just moved to MS-Visual C 5.0,  Could someone point me to a good step by step tutorial on the net or write one for me on how to write with the GUI interface.  I also know and have VB 5.0 but the way of porgramming dialogs and stuff looks a lot different.

Thanx,
Patrick

I just recently moved over to MFC programming in Visual C++ also after doing C++ console programming for a while.
An excellent tutorial is "Mastering MFC Development" from Microsoft, it is a CD-ROM, the best tutorial I've found (and I've really searched a lot).  It *explains* why things work, not just tell you how to do it.  Don't buy the book "learn VC++ in 21 days" or something to that manner... they only tell you *how* to do things.. which isn't bad to start with, but is really sucky for a reference book.
The only drawback with the CD-Rom is it is kind of expensive.

A standard text is "Inside Visual C++" fourth edition text, covers VC++ 5.0.  Excellent text, but it is technical -- there is no casual tone in this text like you would find in typical beginner books.
I heard Visual C++ Developer's Guide is a pretty good book too.  Take a look at that book too.
