I would help but they locked up macs a while back (guess it was a bit before 2000, the last 20 have been a bit of a blur) and made them too much trouble to use with that 'certified programs only from our store only' nonsense and all. I am way too far out of the loop to do more than suggest search terms
Why? Because the library uses the given platform's native API instead of creating a simulated graphical API. AFAIK other GUI libraries use their own GUI API.
What most GUI toolkits do is manually draw their own controls. If you look at Qt applications carefully you can spot the differences. wxWidgets just translates its calls into the underlying API.
IMO by itself this is kind of a silly reason to choose one library over another.
FYI, <windows.h> isn't the sole header needed for creating GUI apps on Windows devices. Depending on what Windows System features you are wanting to utilize other headers have to be included. There are other headers included in <windows.h> already.
I know that Microsoft is making VS available for Mac, but I don't really want it, mainly because
1: it's waaay too complicated for a simple programmer like me...most Windows software seems to be like that; huge, complicated, and slow (It literally took me three weeks just to figure out how to change the page view in Word).
2: I'm one of those purists that thinks you shouldn't use Windows software on a Mac computer (the only reason I use MS Word is because it's what my boss wants me to use).
3: It doesn't have Python (!!!), which I am planning to teach myself one of these days.
Thanks, but like I said above, I don't want VS. I used it before, in college, and...no offense...but it sucked. It might have improved over the years, but Word and PowerPoint haven't, so...
I want to note; if I haven't said this already, I have a Mac, not Windows. So, I don't want Windows software. I want something that does the same thing, but is designed for Mac, not Windows.
I'm not trying to be rude– and if I am, I'm sorry– , I'm just trying to make sure you understand what I'm looking for.
