Hi !

Well, there are some libraries to implement GUI stuff into an OpenGL app, but most of them are based on GLUT, but do you need that ?, if you are going to use Visual C++ you might as well use the rest of Windows to, just make a normal MFC or Win32 application and use OpenGL in it.

The easiest thing is if you use MFC, in that case you can just use an ordinary CView to display OpenGL output.
