Hi astudent,

MFC is set of classes that ease programming Win32 using C++. They hide the standard Win32 callback mechanisms and replace them with objects, inheritance and method invocation.

The Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Library is a collection of classes (generalized definitions used in object-oriented programming) that can be used in building application programs. The classes in the MFC Library are written in the C++ programming language. The MFC Library saves a programmer time by providing code that has already been written. It also provides an overall framework for developing the application program.
