Microsoft Visual C++ Windows Applications by Example is a new book for C++ programmers published by Packt. Written by Stefan Björnander, this book will show users how to develop professional, real-life applications by examining real world examples.
Microsoft Visual C++ is a commercial integrated development environment (IDE) product engineered by Microsoft for the C, C++, and C++/CLI programming languages. It has tools for developing and debugging C++ code, especially code written for the Microsoft Windows API, the DirectX API, and the Microsoft .NET Framework.
The book begins with a quick explanation on the C++ language, and uses the Visual C++ IDE to create Windows applications which include a Tetris-style game, a drawing application, a spreadsheet, and a word processor.
Users will learn how to create applications using MDI, complex file formats, text parsing and processing, graphics, and interactions. Every essential skill required to build Windows desktop-style applications is covered in the context of fully working examples.
The book provides programmers working with C++ or other Windows-based programming languages, with everything they need to build complex desktop applications using C++.
The book is out now and is available with Packt. For more information, please visit: http://www.packtpub.com/visual-c++-windows-application-programming/book
