I am new to C++ and I am trying to find some code for a simple user interface, like a button that you push and something pops up. I just want to look the code over to experiment and see how it works. Any help would be most appreciated, thanks!
Here are some suggestions: If you want to program GUI applications for windows only, Win32 application is good for you. And there is Qt which is completely cross-platformed, and wxWidgets, another cross-platform GUI application and it is free and open source.
I ran that bit of code, and this command sh qt-creator-linux-x86_64-opensource-2.8.0.run and got this error message qt-creator-linux-x86_64-opensource-2.8.0.run: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")")
