See more: C++ GUI

I spent about 2 hours on Google trying to find a good one. I think I already have a headache.

Does anyone have a good tutorial both for windows and Linux?

Thanks in advance

You could look at something like QT if you want to try something that works on Linux and Windows, but for Windows a more popular C++ UI framework would be MFC. Google for MFC and QT tutorials and you should find tons of content.

QT is good, a 5

Again, reasonable, my 5.
It needs selection of the desktop manager and the library (Qt is multi-platform as well as GTK). I would add some more if I knew the manuals.

You could also take a look at WxWidgets:[^]

A tutorial on building a good gui, and a tutorial on a particular toolkit/library usually doesn't have much in common.

If you want to build a good gui, you need to investigate the usage scenario. A good gui for a casual user is usually a really bad gui for a power user - and vice versa Smile | :)

As others have suggested, your choice of framework (.NET, MFC, Qt) will influence your GUI. However, there are some commonly-used GUI   rules and guidelines which transcend the choice of framework. Microsoft has published their User Experience Interaction Guidelines here:[^]
