GUI for beginners

P: 94
Does anyone have a link to some tutorials on creating GUIs in c++ (or java, but preferably c++ for the time being)?

What I am looking for: A very basic entry level tutorial designed for beginners.

I have searched google etc.. but my searches have come up with just tool kits, etc.... all of my programming has been done with regards to console applications. I still have to code some more of these in my academic carear but I would like to start learning GUI in my down time.

Thank you.

I tend to use Java for building GUIs as the code is then portable accross Windows, Linux, OSX, etc - have a look at
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/

the problem with c and C++ is the GUI code tends to depend on the operating system and compiler being used so can be non protable. For help with a particular compiler look on the vendors web site.
