comment What's the best way to retrieve a value and a status
@gnat Well - it's not really a question of what I've tried, as to be honest all of these methods are used somewhere in the code since it's been developed over some time and by many developers. I have an opportunity (while making other improvements) to refactor some methods like this and was wondering which way to go as there's no one route that seems clearly obvious, given the situation in hand.
comment Can someone explain how a GUI works and when I should start using one?
+1 for Qt - @David - Qt has it's own development environment called Qt Creator which is self contained, free and relatively simple compared to others. Qt is powerful, intuitive, extensive, very well documented and with large and active user base. It is easy to get started and there are lots of examples to start playing with and getting to do your own thing - which is a great way to learn by the way. It can be downloaded here

1) Ask the person who wrote it - or 2) for something common like this, spend 5 seconds looking for one that comes with no such issues attached.
