A guide to developing applications for the main types of modern mobile devices-the Palm OS and the Pocket PC, this book focuses on using the new MobileVB tool from AppForge to create PDA applications. The applications developed are specifically for Palm devices, pocket computers with the Pocket PC/Windows CE operating system, and for Kyocera and similar communicators. Descriptions are of a different, free development environment from Microsoft-eMbedded Visual Basic 3.0-that allows programmers to create applications for pocket computers with the Pocket PC OS and its previous version, Windows CE.
Tasks that use databases including a compact version of the SQL server are emphasized. Described are the basic features of MobileVB and eVB and their limitations when compared to standard Visual Basic. A detailed description is given of the controls (ingots) of each of the languages, the library functions, and the accompanying utilities. Also covered are a wide range of possible programs including games, applications that use databases, and Internet technologies.
