This is a very old book dating from Windows 3.1 era. It walks you through the methodology one could take to encapsulate the Windows API in a C++ framework. Most of the information contained in the book is still accurate today except for one chapter related to memory management.


One of the best windows/c++ oriented books ever published! From a guy who knows what he is doing!

One of the best books i ever read

Windows++ gave me the best a book can give, the courage to begin to write a library myself. It works! Hoever i hate to separate C++-code and dialog boxes code. So i hope that the author would show us how to avoid it and write easy dialog boxes in C++. P.S. I know that he has mentioned it in his book but i think its not enough

A must for the truly serious windows c++ programmer

The book is excellent, as it covers in depth how a class library is constructed, along with the logic and windows knowledge components. Although built for the old win 3.x system, it gives a good basis for the construction of one's own personal c++ class gui library. As was stated in the book, the best way to understand the inner workings of a class library is to build your own. This book allows an experienced yet learning programmer to develop top notch system programming. I give the book a nine, because it "does not" include a digital copy of the programs in the book. I started to type the code in, but 100+ pages of it is really too much. The author has an order form in the back of the book, but no access via the webb and the book is five years old, so I guess the reader has to type, eh?
