New to Visual C++

I am just now moving from Visual Basic to Visual C++

One of the things I often used in VB was adding a Winsock style control for communicating with another app I would write. I am not seeing anything that jumps out at me in VC++ that does the same.

Could someone help me out with this? I should mention I am using Visual Studio 2015.

RE: New to Visual C++

Is that UDP or TCP?

It is standard socket code - just google for "sockets server example C++". Also have a look at the client. The only thing is you have to add the WSAStartup (see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/d...)

RE: New to Visual C++

So, as this is in Visual C++ there is no Socket control I can just click and drag onto the form? If I want winsock incorporated I have to use a snippet of code?

RE: New to Visual C++

There hasn't been one of those since VS2002 (VS7). You have to write some code. It is standard stuff anyway. There is a codeproject version of it but I don't know how well it matches the VB6 version.
