GUI "dialog box" help/question
Posted on 2003-03-15
First of all I am trying to develop an application on Windows system, and I am writing in straight C (sadly no real knowledge of C++ or C#) I am using MS Visual Studio 6... I need a way in a GUI window a.k.a a dialog/prompt box to ask the user for his uerid in a graphical format... and then to return the value of userid to the code that launched this prompt/dialog box... Any idea...??? available libraries??? etc...?
PS I have noticed that using MSVS you can make use of the MessageBox functions in straight C, however, there is no way with these message boxes to accept a value let alone have it return that value to the calling application code....
Any ideas..? if suggestion involve somthing other than straight C an example would be helpful... Actually i was hoping that there may even be a library either someone has or knows of that I can load into my C application to accomplish this... in the event this can not be done in straight C... (obviously the library might be written in another language i.e. C++, but can be loaded into my C app.. and return the entered value)...
