GUIs in C++

P: 13
Can you create GUIs such as textboxes using C++?
I have only written basic classes as a small part of my uni course but would like to do more.
I dont actually have any reason to do this I was just wondering if it was possible and if so, what areas should I research?

C++ natively, you can not create GUI applications - but must use OS specific libraries. For example, under windows, you have win32, MFC, & .NET and unix you have lots of different toolkits and libraries. If you want to stick to unix, like I said there are lots out there, some good, some better. I'm sure someone has enough experience to suggest one.

One of the easier (and non-Platform specific) way would be to look up the open source software wxWidgets.....
It is designed to make code that will compile on different OS with a different look and feel...
