Summary and Info
This book is really out of date and is not the GUI toolkit I hoped it would be. I bought this book hoping that I would be able to copy and paste in the code into my project but that isn't going to happen. The code was rushed together and isn't very impressive. There's much more in the GUI sample that displays all the Directx ui widgets in the DirectX SDK.
