Hand Held Devices

P: n/a
I understand my version of VS can support hand held software development
(e.g. Palm Pilot)

I would like to look into developing some of the desktop stuff I wrote into
a palm version.

Does anyone have a tutorial I can look into?

Hi,

You can make a mobil asp.net application that will work on the palm
pilot. VS.NET 2003 will allow you to make stand alone applications that
will work on the PocketPC or WinCE devices only. Check out AppForge for
developing standalone apps for the palm. http://www.appforge.com

AFAIK this will only work for Pocket PCs running Windows.

You are correct. I have recently downloaded the .NET Compact Framework.

just to clarify...it works not only w/ ppc devices but w/ most anything that
runs windows CE including hp hand helds and a few others...also works w/
tablet pcs running CE.

who likes palm pilots anyway. ;^ )

appforge is the most popular plug-in if you want to take, say vb6 source
code, and compile it to something a palm can understand.

Hi,

You can create an ASP.NET Mobile Application using VS 2003 (this is
web/server based, and uses the browser on your device to display UI
elements). You would have to determine if the specific device/browser that
you are using is supported.

If you want to create a client application, then you have to use something
like AppForge -- not Visual Studio, which is for Pocket PC (and Windows CE
4.1 or later) devices.
