Building schematic like gui- directions needed

P: n/a
Hi!

I'm starting to build environment with schematic like gui. Some features
I need are:
- building blocks
- connections between blocks
- zoom in/out capability
- grid (sheet showable, snap to)

Can somebody gives me any directions... Perhaps is there any general
purpose MFC library that I could use...

What is general idea, if I would have to build evth on my own? Just
plain drawing of layers from behind-to-front-order? I.e. sheet grid,
connections, grid? How to handle zoom in/out?

Thanks, I would really appreciate any help.

The C++ language has no facilities for graphics. That functionality
is platform specific and discussed in newsgroups about your platform
or compiler.

Can somebody gives me any directions... North 5 furlongs, then southwest 2 leagues, east by 3.

The folks in an MFC newsgroup would be of great help.

Now the folks in news:comp.programming may be of some help.

OTOH, perhaps some people at news:comp.graphics.* could help.
