    Re: winapi c++ - xml

    Where?? Thats a stupid question. I need to create menus for the restaurant I work at and need to use c++, winapi, xml.

    Let me educate you. Some programs use menus, whether it be a "menu" with file, edit, view, history, etc located at the top of a program or a right click "menu" called a context menu. There you go, you should feel smarter.

    One of notepad++ xml files looks like this. Yes, I could just go look at Notepad++'s source code, but im choosing not too:

    Code:
    - <NotepadPlus>
    - <ScintillaContextMenu>
      <Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Cut" /> 
      <Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Copy" /> 
      <Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Paste" /> 
      <Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Delete" /> 
      <Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Select all" /> 
      <Item id="0" /> 
      <Item MenuEntryName="Search" MenuItemName="Mark all" /> 
      <Item MenuEntryName="Search" MenuItemName="Unmark all" /> 
      <Item id="0" /> 
      <Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="to Upper case" /> 
      <Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="to Lower case" /> 
      <Item id="0" /> 
      <Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Block toggle comment" /> 
      <Item MenuEntryName="Edit" MenuItemName="Stream comment" /> 
      <Item id="0" /> 
      <Item MenuEntryName="View" MenuItemName="Hide lines" /> 
      </ScintillaContextMenu>
      </NotepadPlus>
    If I create an xml file, I can parse it, and assign values to the what I want, but don't know how to create menus outside of resource file.

    Big words for someone who asks a lot of, "noobish" questions.
    Think about it.

    I'm sorry, I haven't seen your name before, CatShoe. Noobish questions are easy to come up with. You should be able to answer all my questions, then. See your answers soon.

    You probably should give people who are trying to help you, a little bit more respect. Your comments above didn't sound so.

    Anyways, I wish you a happy new year :-)

    Man, I have seen your name before, and have to say, you had shown nothing that can excuse your present behavior.

    Impertinence seems like too high price for cheap popularity. Popularity vanishes too fast, reputation lasts much longer. If I were you, I would revise my intentions.

    Popularity? Reputation? - I view popularity grows through opinion, and I state my opinion often. Plus, a forum reputation is just an idea. I could create another username, and reword the same questions I have already asked, and ya'll would never know. Like, if you met me in real life, you would never guess that I'm the rude, impolite zaryk.

    Is it ? Looking at your post, and the amount of information you have provided, and knowing thousand ways menu requirement can be interpreted, I would love to ask, who is stupid now ?

    By 'where', I mean you have not posted about what the heck type your application is, 'where' would that menu go, what kind of menus you want whether it would be dynamically taken from external file or from xml resource.. But you don't care about that, you don't want your information, do you?

    Ohh, that menu... thanks I think I could pass my second standard now.

    If you need help on getting your question answered then I think you first need to learn the mechanics of "Asking the question", and yeah, attitude doesn't help.

    Re: winapi c++ - xml

    Well, first of all, it was not a question, it was a statement.

    Looking for references on how to use xml to create menus. Thanks.
    Second of all, common sense would say, "This dude would like references on how to use xml to create menus." Then common sense would say, "Well, there are multiple ways of using xml files to create menus." Then common sense would say, "So lets get him everything I can find, and explain to him that he can create menus dynamically from external files or from xml resources."

    AND if you were thinking at all, you would figure that if this person, zaryk, was asking for references on how to use xml to create menus, then more than likely he hasn't done it before, and probably doesn't know a lot about using xml files in a program and can't give you a lot of detail about how he wants to use xml files, so asking, "Menus??? Where???", is quite stupid and deserves a smarta$$ remark.

    "Menus??? Where???" can also be taken as sarcasm.

    : )

    OH, and one more thing. You really ought to read before you state stuff like:

    who is stupid now ?
    I wasn't stating anyone as being "stupid" when I said:

    Thats a stupid question.
    I was just stating your question was stupid.
