There are basicly two ways for making a GUI under Windows on your own :
- writing it from scratch with drawing functions, will still look klunky and
take days to complete, not recommended. Turbovision will look klunky too,
it's unsupported, and the use, is, er... not that evident.
- accessing the windows API directly (see MS "Platform SDK" files), will look
better but if you were scared by Borland manuals, this is no solution.
You should *really* go for Delphi unless you have too much free time to lose
on an interface that will still be sub-par. If you're just converting from
BP7, you can probably go with the cheap "standard" version.
