I am an experience borland C++ builder programmer ( more than 10 years).
I have been asked to provide some assistance to a programmer who is modifying an existing Visulal C++ application written in Visual C++ Version 6.
I am seeking a tutorial to assist me in understanding the Visual C++ IDE, my first impression of it is not encouraging.
I am due to provide assistance tomorrow morning!

Thanks in anticipation

Roger

Hello Farzani,
I am interested in creating a Win32 application with a single form containing Button and a RichEdit control such that when the button is clicked, some text is displayed in the RichEdit control.
Your example only describes a console application.

Borland builder is much better for that purpose.  In VC++ 6, you have to write a lot of code yourself.  Yes, you can design the forms, buttons, etc.
For your purpose you need to do Win 32 Application in step1, select option just above Console Application.  With this you can design forms, etc.

You can also select MFC Application, etc.

So the above didn't help you?  Did you Win32 application option or MFC option?
