Hi. I just started using C++. My question is, how do you design how your program looks? Unlike Visual Basic, C++ doesn't have a noticable things to design your program's look with.

Depends what you're using. It's kinda tricky in MSVC++. You can use the AppWizards (MFC, ATL, etc) to design some of it, but its got a lot different feel from VB, and you have to know something about the MFC to do anything really cool. Borland C++Builder on the other hand is just like VB as far as the designing part. You get an object inspector and it's easy to program the events. Unfortunately, it uses it's own libraries of GUI components, and its not as widely used as the MFC.

It depends on what OS you use,for nix systems you can use Qt,Gtk (GNOME) and KDE (based on Qt,for KDE) for your graphical interfaces.
