There is nothing special about Borland C++ WIN32 API programming vs. any other development tool.  I think you need a good Windows programming reference.  My suggestion as to the best place for a beginner to start is the excellent book "Programming Windows" by Charles Petzold.

To add them, its drag and drop.  TO use them, the variable name is visible when that component is clicked. The have names like Edit1. Look in the help on Edit box, etc.  Members are listed, for example Edit1->LoadFromFile(...);

Its a very easy tool, but the names are nonstandard (or were, have not used the latest version) so you have to read the help.

Try this:
 
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/win32/win32start_1xyd.asp?frame=true

It is the online documentation for using the Win32 API.  You can also download the Platform SDK; it provide many example programs:

Who?  Me?  No.  I'll keep an eye on it... perhaps revisit it now and then for old-time's sake.  Who knows, manbirpahwa may one day return and post a comment.  That  would be a thrill beyond description.
