    If you are new to both programming and C++ in particular, then you have a quite steep learning curve in front of you!

    For an on-line resource to learning C++, have a look at https://www.learncpp.com/

    For a book on learning C++, I suggest Beginning C++17: From Novice to Professional by Ivor Horton

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Beginning-C...654/ref=sr_1_1

    For another intro book which covers simple graphics using FLTK, consider Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++ By Bjarne Stroustrup

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Programming...784/ref=sr_1_8
    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS. You are ultimately responsible for the effects of your programs and the integrity of the machines they run on.

Also note that I only provide advice and guidance via the forums - and not via private messages!

    When I started Windows programming in C++ I used a GUI (Graphical User Interface) package called Win32++. There are several sample applications included. I picked the one I thought looked most like the one I wanted to write. This is an approach I think many programmers follow. Get started with a working sample and modify it to your liking.

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32-framework/

    http://win32-framework.sourceforge.net/

    An additional benefit is that David Nash, the author of Win32++, is very friendly and immediately answers all questions at the Win32++ forum. The only drawback with Win32++ I can think of is that it's a one-person project (as far as I know) and therefore somewhat vulnerable.
