Hi Guys,

Need a bit of advice, I developing a GUI of a system which was designed as a console
application. With few options in visual studio like windows forms (VB.NET), MFC and wxwidgets am not sure as to what would be appropriate to use and plus I have very limited time to do this.

The actual console application is developed in visual C++.

Please advice!

Thanks in advance.

You could use any of them, but IMO Windows Forms (CLR/C++) or C# would be easiest to port that console program. If you want the program to be cross platform on both MS-Windows and *nix then wsWidgets might be better.

Thanks for the reply! How difficult is it to port console application into windows form? Since its written in C++ (console) My experience in windows form is quite limited..........

Depends on the console app, how difficult is it to take an existing house and convert it to a 4 star hotel?? In one extreme you will have to tear it down and start all over from scratch.

Well true :D
I will start by doing few tutorials in windows form c++
and take it on from there.
