  • Blog Post: Windows Forms III - Dynamic Layout

    I'm not going to belabor my blog with yet another code explanation. I've converted the dynamic layout example (found here ) from C# to C++. It isn't especially interesting, but it is good groundwork for later examples and projects. Get the code! You can download this dynamic layout example here ....
  • Blog Post: CmdLiner - a break from Windows Forms

    This will be the third time I tried to start this post. Let's see if I get derailed yet again, or if I can actually finish it this time and get it up on the blog. To break from the monotony of Windows Forms, I'm uploading a snippet that wasn't originally intended to be a code sample. But, in my frantic...
  • Blog Post: Hello World from Windows Forms, MK II.

    Now that we've gotten our feet wet, it's time to try something a bit more complicated. We'll include a TextBox and a Button in this example, and also take a quick look at how we wire up events on actions like button clicks. I'm going to be skipping the explanation for code that we've already seen, and...
  • Blog Post: Hello World from Windows Forms!

    It begins... This will be a new series of articles. I'll start with some ports of existing samples (from here ), and move into some original material. I want to take a Managed C++ (and specifically a Whidbey C++) approach to Windows Forms, and investigate what exactly we can do with this powerful library...
  • Blog Post: loc - my own simple .NET version of the unix 'which' facility

    As is often the case, I wrote a small program to do something useful for myself. I have a (Win32) copy of the unix “which” utility, but I wanted something that would simultaneously search my path, include, and lib environment variables. What I came up with was loc, and it is a pretty simple...
  • Blog Post: PtrToStringChars v2 remix

    A while back, in order to get some code to compile, I had to update PtrToStringChars (found in vcclr.h) to work in the new Whidbey C++. In case anyone wants this, I've posted my implementation (and a small main() to drive it) here: p2sc.zip . Keep in mind: this is my personal implementation...
  • Blog Post: Simple stack code

    We've got a code sample today, of a simple integer stack implemented using Whidbey C++.  I'll implement it using three pieces of code: stack.h - definition of the stack stack.cpp - implementation of the stack main.cpp - driver program that makes use of the stack I compile...
