WTL on SourceForge


The Windows Template Library (WTL) is now available on SourceForge. If you're not familiar with this library, it extends ATL and it's great for building Windows applications. A couple of things to note about the WTL. It requires ATL, so you'll need to be running at least the standard version of Visual C++ to get that. Here's the link:

Project: Windows Template Library (WTL)

Windows Template Library (WTL) is a C++ library for developing Windows applications and UI components. It extends ATL (Active Template Library) and provides a set of classes for controls, dialogs, frame windows, GDI objects, and more.

The Code Project has a great WTL Page that has tons of examples.

    Hi,

    It’s nice to have that library open sourced for the development community. But it would be even better if we could use that lib with the currently released Visual C++ toolkit 2003. But as I noticed it depends on ATL which is not included in the Visual C++ toolkit – there is currently no way for me to use that.

    So could you think of adding ATL to the Visual C++ toolkit distribution ?

    Best regards,
