Mobile Device developmnet

vul
I've got a request from my boss to give some users the ability to connect to
SQL Server database while they are on the road.
I'm VB6 and VB.Net (beginner) developer. Mobile devices were not bought yet.
So it depends on my research what to buy.
I decided to start a simple application in VB 2005. There are 3 options for
Smart Device applications:
Pocket PC 2003,
Smartphone PC 2003,
Windows CE 5.0

There is no Windows Mobile 5.0

I also browsed Internet and some people say that Windows CE 5.0 is
different from Windows Mobile 5.0. There is a suggestion to use Windows
Mobile 5.0 because it fully supports Framework 2.0. But I'm not sure if my
application will work on Windows Mobile 5.0 when I develop and test it on
Pocket 2003 PC Emulator.

Any advice where to start please

Thank you
Al

You can download the SDK can windows mobile 5.0 here

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

And depending on the devices you buy some manufacturers also offer an
SDK as well as emulator images. My preference is for Mobile 5.0 on
PocketPC.

This is an article that discusses connecting to sql from pocket pc that
i find works well.

Hey asp.net 2.0 I wonder if it's possible to have both standard asp.net and mobile asp.net in the same web application. When the web server gets a request it can detect if this requested comes from a mobile or not???. Maybe there is setting in web.config specifying the default page if requested by a mobile phone???

I am confused about how I can insert literal text into a page from C# in the ASP.NET 2.0 Mobile Page model. There is no supported "Literal" control as there is in ASPX (standard), though I don't understand why not. So the question is, how do I get literal HTML text into a certain spot on my ASPX page in mobile? It seems I cannot even insert a <pand then run it at the server and control it's InnerText or anything. Help? Alex

When the mobile device is connected via ActiveSync an I open Windows Explorer, under My Computer, I see "Mobile Device" and can browse files on the PocketPC. However, in my C# code, when I open a FileDialog, "Mobile Device" does not appear under My Computer.

I saw a MS demo a few years back where they developed a web page and the software automatically rendered it for different devices. Is this what I'm looking for? http://www.asp.net/mobile/ Much of the info looks old. I have a MSDN account where can I download it or is it already in VS 2008 and I just don't know how to find it? I'm mainly interested in having simple pages render in Internet Explorer

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
