Hi guys,
first of al i ve to say hello.. (first time in this forum).
then:
i tried to create a program to calculate some simple things..
i ve three editboxes and four pushbuttons. ok.. the when i push a button the program has to calculate. i tryed and it works. but now i stuck. i want to change a editbutton to be disabled by pressing another button. i cannot find the entrance to this way of programming. i searched for functions etc. everywhere. i only did find winapi and so on with c++ and nothing worked.
another problem:
how can i open a new window (it might be simple, but i dont check it.. poor beginners.. ;-))
can somebody help me please or tell me where i can read about it..
i did a lot off in vba.. and thought it should be simple to find the entrance.. it wasnt simple..
thanks a lot
greets of bavaria, germany

The function you are searching for is EnableWindow, use the handle of the control and use TRUE or FALSE to enable or disable the control.

Any control (button, edit, etc.) is a window, since all are created with CreateWindow  :)

There is a great tutorial for beginning Windows programming:

www.winprog.org/tutorial

You can also check

win32assembly.online.fr/tutorials.html

It's for assembly, but code is very intuitive and the windows concepts are nicely explained.
