Yeah, Just beginning to learn C++ last couple of months.
I would recommend you stick to pure C++ until you feel totally comfortable with it, and avoid trying to understand MFC, WTL or the like. I went through this process some years back and got totally confused trying to learn C++ and MFC at the same time.
The MFC has the advantage that the wizards of the VC work with it but the disadvantage that it is like outdated glue. Sigh
I thought MFC is like hot glue. It's great for quick or simple work, even after years you can pull out your hot glue gun and it does the job. I once borrowed a van and lost a mirror on the Autobahn, luckily we could make one from spare parts (hand mirror and a plastic bowl), hotglued it back on and continued the travel. Can Silverlight do that?
Working with glue is fine if you do a "glue" job. But if you want to engineer a car you need finer tools.
I do a lot with MFC, but for finer control, lighter setups you better stick to ATL or WTL. Or the code isnt portable to other platforms. A time ago after I throw all MFC stuff out of my code to get running on MAC OS with GCC. Since than I try to separate "pure C" and MFC code in classes.
Press F1 for help or google it.
Greetings from Germany
I am developing a MDI based application. In that i have two set of splitter. For ex splitter1 has TestView1, TestView2 and splitter2 has TestView3, TestView4. In this situation i am loading the splitter1 as initial view for my application. Here i want to open the splitter2 by some menu selection in the same document. How can i get this result.
