A key resource to learn how to repurpose Windows applications for handheld devices. Provides an ideal reference and road map for directly porting Win32 applications when it's possible, and a set of metrics that can be used to determine how best to proceed when it isn't. Softcover.
In an increasingly mobile world, millions of developers with Windows programming experience need to quickly transfer their skills to creating compact, asynchronous CE applications. This book presents a roadmap to guide developers through the intricate tasks of porting and reworking Win32 applications to enable them to run efficiently and usefully on Windows CE-based mobile devices.
* Presents a set of metrics for developers to determine when and how best to proceed in porting Win32 applications
* Shows developers how to understand the embedded-system bias inherent in Windows CE and how to write applications that use this as a strength
* Covers Unicode, which is mandatory for Windows CE, and explains how to consider the effect of various screen resolutions
