Chapter 2. The Windows Programming Model

"Lilu Dallas Multipass!"

Lilu, The 5th Element

Windows programming is like going to the dentist: You know it's good for you, but no one likes doing it. Am I right? In this chapter, I'm going to show you the basics of Windows programming using my "Zen" methodology—or, in other words, the easy way. I can't promise that you'll like going to the dentist after reading this chapter, but I can promise you that you'll like Windows programming a lot more than you ever did! Here's what you'll learn:

  • The history of Windows

  • Basic Windows architecture

  • Windows' classes

  • Creating Windows

  • Windows event handlers

  • Event-driven programming and event loops

  • Opening multiple windows
