    There are many ways to GUI programming Via C++ !!

    1- WinAPI the Main API and it’s really really painful
    2- You Can use the .Net Platform C++/CLI and this means new syntax
    3- 3rd Party Library Like QT (Easier , Cross platform and you will use the Native C++) Or Wxwidgets But I didn’t try it
    4- MFC ( Microsoft Foundation Classes ) It’s kinda a wrapped WINAPI (Less Code than WInAPI)
    Finally I believe using QT is the best !! Because WinAPI / C++/ClI – MFC Is only for Windows platform !!

    QT is really Easy and it supports visual designer
