Overview

Visual C++ 5 is the latest incarnation of Microsoft's premier development product, and this book is the comprehensive tutorial. Starting from C++ basics, the author takes the novice programmer through programming for Windows right up to creating their own ActiveX controls using the latest features of Visual C++.

Who is this book for?
With theory illustrated throughout by clear and thorough code examples and exercises, this book is ideal for newcomers and readers with knowledge of other languages alike.

What does it cover?
The book can be broken down into 4 sections. The first is a fast-paced but comprehensive tutorial to the C++ language, which is punctuated with interesting and worthwhile example programs We then go on to learn about object orientation with C++ and how this relates to Windows programming, and the section ends with the design and implementation of a sizable class-based C++ application.
The third part of the book walks the reader through creating Windows applications using MFC. This includes output to the screen and printer, how to program menus, toolbars and dialogs, and how to respond to a user's actions. To illustrate the theory, this section also includes the complete implementation of a simple but fully-featured drawing application.
The final few chapters comprise an introduction COM and examples of how to create ActiveX controls using both MFC and the ActiveX Template Library (ATL).

What's special about this book?
As well as the extensive coverage of Visual C++ programming, from the fundamentals of the language to the latest developments, what sets this book apart is Ivor's relaxed and informal teaching style, which makes even difficult concepts easy to grasp.
It's perfect for Visual Basic and Delphi Programmers who see the new release of the software as an opportunity to learn the language, and the examples in the text are backed up by challenging exercises at the end of each chapter, all of which are answered in the back of the book. |TOC: Programming with Visual C++

    Not that much good

    What i recommend, is that if you are looking for a book which guide you trough all the phases that you should do to know c++ and something of visual c++, buy it. I didnt read it all, but i started with the first pages (60) and was a little slow, it deppends on which person you are, again, if you dont know much of c++, buy it because it has too much of c++ rather than Visual, as a matter of fact it is half c++ and half Visual. If you already know C++, i recomend something that has visual c++ and anything of MFC. thats all folks
