" The job of the MFC team is to give the C + + Windows developer the most comprehensive assistance possible for developing working code, and I believe that commitment extends to the contents of h is eve book. I work for Microsoft, but that wont prevent me from exposing both the strengths and weakness of our framework. In these pages, I'm going to describe the majority of the Microsoft Foundation Classes. On the way, I want to focus your attention on the utility the classes provide and the way they work together. I'm not going to spend time reproducing the help files by detailing every parameter for every member function. My aim is to help you to discover the great features of Visual C + + 6 for yourself, and then I'll show you how to make the best applications, utilities and embedded objects in town, using MFC.
