Welcome to the Visual Component Framework !
The Visual Component Framework was inspired by the ease of use of environments like NeXTStep's Interface Builder, Java IDEs like JBuilder, Visual J++, and Borland's Delphi and C++ Builder. I wanted a generic C++ class framework I could use to build app's quickly and visually (when designing UIs), as well as having the core of the framework be as cross platform as possible. The Visual Component Framework is an Open Source project, so feel free to grab and use it if you think it might be useful. If you're really adventuresome you can volunteer to help develop it, making it even better, especially in tying it into the VC++ environment as an add-in.
