you are missing my point. I want a higher level of abstraction.
win32gui is nice if you have a simple 1:1 binding for a struct - dialog
scenario. But it will kill you if you have a frame window with a
notebook as a client, several notebook pages with splitter windows, list
boxes forms etc...
I don't think I would like to do that using your 'save_dlg' setting. You
need a way to break it up into small, manageable parcels.
The Lit Window Library (http://www.litwindow.com/library) also lets you
specify complex bindings that evaluate C++ expressions:
Frame.Title = "Headline: " + myStruct.m_title
The framework reevaluates Frame.Title everytime myStruct.m_title changes.
The data abstraction layer requires some macros, which btw are using
templates and are type save, but allows you to do more than simple 1:1
I've written a new article explaining the interface. A behind the scenes
look will follow shortly:

While I don't like macros, I don't want to add them directly for bigger
dialogues. It messes up my code.
But your win32gui is interesting.
