    Graphics Programming

    Hello!

    I'm wanting to make some nice looking applications, but I don't know where to start looking for. I know how to program "standard" C, C++ and C# applications and was wondering how I can design an application looking like the Zune player of microsoft. This application doesn't have the typical "window" style.

    What technologies are used there? I guess it must be something like silverlight? Can you give me some help to have a starting point for my studies? I really have no idea of what technology we're talking about here.

    Greetings Ice

    PS: I don't know if this is the correct forum. If not I'm really sorry!

    No one replied to you! I'm not sure why. However, you can try starting out using SDL. I'm currently learning to use SDL with c++ and it's going great.

    With SDL you load images, sounds, etc., and apply them to a window. You can check for events, like mouse input and keyboard input. It's pretty great, definitely a step up from command line programs.

    Edit: Forgot to include a links.
    My go-to website for SDL tutorials is lazyfoo.net. The guy is great and tells you most of what you need to know.

    If you want to look at my personal SDL project, you can check out the gallery on my website.
