    Hello All.
    I created a program for my "LAP" class in school using C. I would like to experiment more by makinga GUI to use with it but i havent had any experience with GUI's Can anyone point me in some directions, give me some samples of things i should learn?

    What i want to do is pretty much just have Start/Stop Buttons, a Scrolling Textbox that shows everything that will be printf'd. To me it seems easy but i just cant find something like this...

    Yep, if you want to go the C route, those are good to look at.

    If you want something simpler, with more instant gratification, try Tcl/Tk. It's a pretty easy scripting language, and it makes GUIs that look pretty decent. It can help you learn about designing GUIs anywa.

    GTK FTW. I personally don't like QT.

    QT blows goats. Gtk+ FTW. In C. If I were making a simple app, I would use Perl/Tk. If I didn't want to learn perl, I would learn Tcl/Tk in a couple hours (first or fourth time... its real simple).
