I have a project wherein I have to develop a GUI, this will to display pressure areas of a foot...
Is it possible using visual c++, and if not then what is a better option...???

All things are possible in software, but you need to be more specific about your question if you want some help. If you wish to use Windows Forms then you may find C# or VB.NET are better language choices.

And how do you mix c++ and VB?????

You can easy mix C++ and C++/CLI, using VC++

If you program in native C++ using VC++ you have WindForm for CLI with is easy to use.

Without knowing your skill levels it is difficult to answer the question. If you are an experienced C++ programmer then I would stick with that language and use native Windows GDI[^] or GDI+[^] to produce your graphs and pictures. If you have some C# or VB.NET skills then Windows Forms would probably be the better choice.

There are lots of samples in the CodeProject Articles section[^].

I have basic knowledge of OOP concepts using c++,honestly speaking, no prior experience with c#. But as I read more on c#,I feel I might be able to do this on windows form...

I suspect you will need considerably more than basic knowledge for this project. I would suggest you spend time getting comfortable with whichever language you decide to use, and then make use of the tutorials and articles here to help you plan and implement it.

Any books/reference for windows form application dev using c#....
PS and by the ease of availability of resources c# seems to be a better option....

I gave you the link to the CodeProject articles section, you need to go and browse it, or try some searches. See also this section of MSDN. And Google also finds lots of useful stuff.

Yes, it is possible to write a C++ program and have a GUI in C++/CLI, or enterely program with C++/CLI.
