The easiest GUI to learn these days is HTML. It's easy because the languages
are relatively simple (simpler than C++!), and because there are so many
toolkits and tutorials to pick from. Use CSS to change its skin!

However, this newsgroup is not qualified to discuss GUIs, because we can
only discuss the raw C++ language itself, and this supports too many GUIs.

You should find a users group in your area to study with.

You need to go to an NG that deals with GUIs, it's off-topic in this NG
(standard C++ discussion).

Thank you very much!

Actually I want to find some tutorials about creating beautiful GUI
using C++,not HTML.I hope the skin can be changed easily,just like
winamp.

I just studyed GUI programming using win32 SDK,but it's too difficult
to create a good graphic interface.MFC is better,but isn't MFC
dying?And whichever library I choose,they are just library.They don't
tell me how to create a beautiful skin to a software.

Please read what I wrote very much. This newsgroup is not qualified to
discuss GUIs, or any other libraries that C++ supports. We can only discuss
the raw C++ language here. So you won't find the best answers here.

Search for WTL, and get on its newsgroup. WTL is for those who know SDK.

wxWidgets has an HTML class.
Read the documentation for wxWidgets, try the examples, etc..

[ wxWidgets has pretty good documentation compared to other projects of it's
type.]
