    hi all,

    I am working in a carbon c++ application using XCode.

    In VB,

    We can design two forms.
    When i click a button in first form, i can able to see the second form.

    Like that,

    How can i create a window when i click a button in carbon c++ application?

    Thanks in advance and urgent plz....

    I'm just curious - you've asked at least three fairly basic coding questions on this board, each with "urgent please." What are you working on?

    If you are just learning, I'd take my time and learn, not rush and perhaps get advice that you implement without any understanding. Either you have a very short time to learn because you're leaving the planet, etc. (which I hope isn't the case) or you have some sort of deadline for this, which obviates the educational aspect of the project.

    Others are probably better fit to answer this, but i think you want multiple nibs. This tutorial shows you how to load other nibs.

    This may be unnecessary, my Interface Builder experience is pretty limited. I would say that whatever you're going to do it's going to require the routine bound to the button click to invoke the new window. Whether that is going to require a separate nib or not can hopefully be clarified by others here.

    Why are you using Carbon not Cocoa? Carbon is essentially deprecated as it is going 64 bit and Cocoa is really the future of Mac development.
