hi all,
  i am currently using visual studio 6......mainly C++. I am anxious to move up to the .net environment. Does anyone know a really good place to learn the .net environment?? Also, I was wondering if anybody knew where I could get a hiearchy chart of all the mfc classes in .net. because I know a lot of new functionality was added to the .net suite.

thanks
p

With a couple of relatively minor exceptions, MFC is basically the same in VC7 as in VC6.  Type checking on message maps is more strict, CString was changed substantially, some changes were made to the template containers, and that's about the extent of things you might have to change when you compile an old project in the new environment.  There wasn't really any new functionality added to MFC, and I don't think the hierarchy is really any different.

If you want to write managed code and use all the new .NET framework stuff, then you have some learning to do.  Someone can probably point you to a good book.  You're probably better off going with C# if you want to do .NET stuff, though.  It's a bit confusing to use managed C++ because it doesn't always work as you'd expect and the syntax will seem strange after doing regular C++ coding.
