Build

No separate build step is required. since this is a header only library. This avoids all the challenging configuration management problems that can result from trying to maintain a separate library build, when the library build and application build use different compilers or compiler options.

  • Add "include "wex.h"; to application source files that use windex.
  • Add the include folder to the compiler search directories.
  • Add the windows libraries gdi32, comdlg32 to the linker command

Hello World

Complete sample code for a hello world application.
