Item description for Introduction to Windows and Graphics Programming with Visual C++ .Net by Roger Mayne...
This book provides an accessible approach to the study of Windows programming with Visual C++. It is intended to be an introduction to Visual C++ for technical people including practicing engineers, engineering students, and others who would like to understand Windows programming and use its inherent graphic capabilities. While the book is aimed at a technical audience, the mathematical content is modest and it should be readable by most people interested in C++ programming. Readers of this book will be introduced to Windows programming in perhaps the most natural way, by using the Visual C++ object-oriented environment and the tools of the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC).

Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to Windows and Graphics Programming with Visual C++ .Net?
Great book Feb 16, 2008
This is a very interesting and informative book. I would recommend it for anyone interested in adding graphics to programs. I used it with Visual C++ 6 which made following the examples a little more difficult, but haf no problems creating the programs. My only complaint is that, in many places, the author expects the reader to just load and run the program examples from the included CD-ROM, rather than stepping through the program creation. I find this to be an ineffective way to learn. Overall it's well worth buying, though.
Just what I needed! Apr 2, 2006
This year I decided to brush-up on my programming skills. I purchased a copy of visual C++ and a couple of books on C++ programing. After a few days of dealing with cat and dog objects I was bored. Then I came upon this book - with its fast pace and easy to understand examples my interest was regenerated. It takes you from "Hello World" to programming using windows with graphics in about 200 pages (a third of the way through the book) or in time, just a coupe of days!
As an ex-engineer with some C experience I found the book doesn't over complicate the subject and enables you to get to results quickly. Obviously the book is missing some details, but you can use your other less interesting C++ books to fill those gaps.
