    I am new to the Mac environment (recent switcher) and I love mac. I have some self-taught knowledge of C++(not a lot) and I am trying to self teach C and obj c. My question is how do I create additional windows in Cocoa/Xcode?
    Ultimately I have a program that consists of 4 buttons each with different purposes, of course. I would like each button to open a new window where the user will input data to be converted. One button is a metric converter. And when the user clicks this button I would like a window to open with input fields and selections to convert lets say inches to centimeters, or whatever. Is there a simple way to do this? Thanks in advance. I have searched forums, and all over the net to find something to do just this.

    Thanks for any help in advance,

    Use NSWindow. You can create them in Interface Builder or in code.
