c++.chat - Another Newbie Question

Hi,


I'm an amateur programmer with a background in Visual Basic and Turbo Pascal
as my only credentials.  Not only that, but I'm kind of rusty.

BTW, I am just delighted to find someone who had developed a reasonably
priced C++ system w/ IDDE for a reasonable price.

Now for my question.  I just went through familiarizing myself with the IDDE
to the point of doing the tutorial and being able to set up a W32 project,
resource file, and setting up the Class Express Control IDs, Messages and
Variables.  I don't know any C/C++ at all really, like I learned everything
I did in the past with other languages, I like to just start and kind of
absorb it as I go.  But I'm starting to spend too much time on figuring out
how to get a basic framework going with complete basic open and save
functionality.  The issue is figuring out what the source is for the
relevant commands.

At this point, I have a command that I have identified from the SDK,
IPersistFile::Save, which appears may be the solution to the save function
at least (someone pls correct me if I'm on the wrong track there).  But
basically, I am writing a small program that has one picture window and one
text window and I want to be able to scroll through my Tarot cards and enter
in my own text for each card.

If anyone would like to take the time to help me get over this learning
curve and speed things up a little, I'd be very grateful.  More info
available on request.  It might help out other newbies as well.

If you post up your project, we can all take a look. Not promising - as most
people on the group are pretty busy chaps - but you'll doubtless get some
feedback

There's an out-of-print book "Mastering the MFC" by Richard Parker which is
pretty helpful with this. Try the used online book market.
