View Full Version : On-Device Programming ?

I`ve searched the Net hard hoping to find any informational resources devoted to practical programming on Smartphones, in vain.

The only one I know is at isiam.blogspot.com being a great example of such an interesting topic. I'm finding it really strange ... :roll:

The book called Programming Microsoft Windows CE.NET by Douglas Boling has a section devoted to programing Microsoft Smartphone 2002 devices. Although most new Smartphone devices use the Windows Mobile 5 OS, the topics and principles described in this book still apply. In fact, I use most of their code snippets and examples in my Smartphone applications which will run on the Windows Mobile 5 OS devices.

Note, that the mentioned book has all examples written in Win32 code (not .NET or MFC).

Hope that helps.

Sorry for the slow response.

The best way to learn device programming is with the help of the samples that come with Windows Mobile SDK. Download and install the SDK, and then look in the Samples folder.

Also, Microsoft has a bunch of info up here (it can be a bit over-whelming):

This page has an overview and also on the right side you will find the "Getting Started" link. Check that out:
