I've been teaching myself C++ and have written a little Temperature conversion program. However, it always runs in the dull, black dos type environment and its annoying me. Can you program your application to open up as a normal Window i.e it has the same colours and style as i have my winXP set to. If so I would really like some advice on what to do. My rather hefty book doesn't seem to mention anything about it, and am wondering whether it is possible. Thanks for your time.

Before we get our sleeves rolled up, are you using MS Visual C++ or are you programming "proper" C++ and if so which editor/compiler and so on are you playing with ?

Please can I have a ring-side seat for this?

I am using Dev C++ compiler, does this mean i'm doing "proper c++" coding it all out line after line after line...
