Can anybody help me to create a notepad like interface in C++.
It should have a cursor which moves as we move the arrow keys.

You'll need to explore a graphical API to create the GUI - this will depend what platform you're running

(Or you could explore a cross-platform API such as wxWidgets http://www.wxwidgets.org/ )

If you use win32 api functions there is an edit control that does most of that for you. You just have to implement the File and other menu items.
