i would like to know the syntax for basic gui functions like drawing bitmaps, displaying pixels, or even just making a simple gui window.
the thing is i want to do this without using ANYTHING, not even opengl!
trust me, im fine with using a lower base language to create routines to do this, but i just wanted to know exactly where i should start, becasue i dont want to write a lot of code and then realize its useless!
Win32API and GDI = write a lot of code and then realize its useless!
when compared to other freeware...but its good If you want to get a feel for low level windows API calls and event driven "callbacks". Search engines are your best friend, just know what you want to use what you make for. Learn what a message queue and loop is. Learn...cough...teach yourself how to wrap the haphazardness that is some of WINAPI and make it useful.
