Hello everyone, thanks for any help or direction you can provide.
I volunteer at a not for Profit Museum/Library locally in town.
They realized they have thousands and thousands of duplicate publications that they wanted to donate to various organizations. Keeping track of this seemed a bit much for an excel spreadsheet. So I thought me being a computer dork(MCSE Side of things)I might give C++ a shot and make a simple program to keep track of this. (After starting this project, now I see why I went to the network side of technology, lol)
Well I downloaded and installed Code::Blocks as well as WXwidgets. I followed the "Hello World" Tutorial and everything was going great.
Tutorial I used:
I was able to build the "GUI" interface just as we wanted it.
Unfortunately the Tutorials just ends at that part, and as I am completely new to programming I am not even sure what to search for in google to look up tutorials or information on the next step.
I have my GUI interface looking how I want. But how do I link the fields to a database and then pull the data entered into a report? I'm not asking for someone to do the work for me, I was wondering if anyone knows of a tutorial for the next steps or knows of another website that could be helpful.
Thank you so much for anyone who can point me in the right direction. I have not a clue of what to search in google and after spending the past 3 days searching my Google-Fu is weak, so I figured this grasshopper would look for a place to ask the Masters. Hopefully I came to the right place and posted it in the right area.
Here is what I have so far.
