I'm sort of new to Win32 programming, and my aim is to create an IDE (text editor). I have no experience what so ever in Win32, so want to find some sites where I can get a good start.

Can anyone suggest some?

Thanks!

Did you look in the examples folder in the Windows download?

Yes! I took a look at them, and I understand a few instruction, but I want to understand the parameters of some of the APIs.
I viewed MINIPAD and it seems like a good example and start. But before, I'll take a look at Iczelion's Win32 Assembly. (thanks, zhak)

Design and Implementation of a Win32 Text Editor (in C++) if you want to write your own control from scratch.

it seems you should understand what you want, first of all Wink asm is not an ABC stuff that can be expertized in a week. its years of coding and coding, and coding... you should really love it, you should dream of it... breath with it... or it would be just a waste of time and then it's better to learn some HL trash like .net or (hardly make myself pronounce this word...) java and go making loads of money writing bulky, slow and unoptimized software.
but if you wanna be a real coder, don't be in a hurry. walk this path step by step, chew it thoroughly, then swallow. do simple tasks first, then harden them. and some day you'll become a code guru Smile

yeah, and prior to learning how to create custom win32 controls, get used to win32, know how to use standard controls (Edit, RichEdit). MSDN library is almost everything that you need in order to use Win32 API. when you already know the basics of win32 programming using fasm, of cource (syntax, calling conventions, passing the parameters, etc.)

Years of coding, heh? Well, I've been learning assembly for almost a year now, and I think I have progressed to some level, where I (sort of) understand DOS software coding.
It really does take a while. And i love assembly programming, it is down to the root

I'll be sure to see MSDN Library, and definitely take small steps.
