Writing a plugin in c# for the Home screen

7 posts in this topic

I'm interested in writing a plugin to add functionalities to the home screen of my imate sp5m.

After a little search i've seen that these plugins r written only in c++. Also installing VS2005 under C:\Program files\Windows CE Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone SDK\Samples\CPP\Win32\Homescreen there is a sample how to do that (always in c++). I've read that these plugins r mainly COM objects, but i've found only examples in c++. Now i ask if it is possible to write a such plugin in c# or vb under VS2005 and if there a sample somewhere on the net. Thank u.

No transparency = ugly tho!

You can't write true complete plugins in managed code, they need at least an unmanaged wrapper.

Awesome, I hope you can release some code!

I'd love to see it being PPC compatible too!
