From what I was told, creating a GUI from C++ is a time consuming process, I only ever learned console. I looked into creating something like a word processor or OneNote notebook. Everything pointed to Qt if I wanted to do it faster and easier. VLC is powered by Qt. I was told by experienced programmers "why re-invent the wheel when someone else already has an existing solution?" You should check out Qt if you like to build GUI based software. They have very interesting tutorial pieces.


Try Code Project:
