VC++ Equivalent on FC3????


Hey people, I am currently working on a project for the WIN32 platform, and I am using VC++ 6.0 for the development. I was curious if there is any such rapid GUI building IDE, resembling it, available in the Linux ditribution FC3? If there is, then please let me know coz I will be more than happy to work with it.

You might like kylix3 from Borland (free download for non-commercial use) or qt3.

But for cross-platform development you might want to look into 'mono'. I have compiled .net exe files on windows that run just fine on Linux mono. (It feels strange typing './hello.exe' on Linux on a file I created on windows and read "Hello, world" on my screen.) It also has its own full C# compiler which creates executables that run on windows. It has a development IDE but it is still primitive. The problem -- it just isn't quite ready for prime time yet. Console applications are fine. Some windows dialog boxes work, some don't. All the pieces are not there yet, but keep checking its progress.

For programming in C/C++ you have libraries Qt and Gtk (two most popular). They have their own tools to draw windows etc. The programs are Qt Designer and Glade. They're integrated into editors (developing environments). Qt Designer is easily accessible from KDevelop and Glade from Anjuta. Note that thay're not RAD, through. But make the development fast.

thanx for the reply.
Actually, what I meant to ask was if there is any such rapid development IDE for develooping Linux softwares, like we have our good old GCC, which is for console applications, but I wish to develop applications for the GUI part of Linux, and I wish to do it as easily as with VC++ and VB for windows. So can I expect something?

Don't know what VC++ and VB offer, don't use Windows. Linux GUI is based on Qt or GTK, so you probably need to choose one of those and their tools (you don't need to draw windows writing lots of code - tools generate it for you).

And as wpn146 pointed out:
for commercial-strength RAD there's Kylix ...

http://www.borland.com/kylix/
Beats VC/VB hands down :)

QT designer is a lot like kylix/delphi, but is C++ based, whereas Kylix is Delphi/Pascal based.

KDE is built on the QT libraries and KDevelop is another IDE you could use. They both use gcc/g++ in the background but offer there own frameworks.

Trolltec, the company behind the QT library, has published a book called "C++ GUI Programming with Qt3" which I picked up at Barnes & Nobels. http://www.phptr.com/press/press_rel...asp?promo=1111

Both the KDE and QT frameworks have volumes of detailed documentation that comes with any distribution of Linux.

Kylix does both C++ AND Pascal ... ;)

Try here:

There are a number of basics given a cursory review. Some are very close to visual basic in functionality.
