yeah!

i made my first smartphone program:

post-15389-1165789693_thumb.jpg

the thing it does is when i press soft butten1 it quits!

but i made it work, and tried to ad some controls from the toolbox. that works too.

what i did to get to here is:

1) install visual studio 2005

2) installed microsoft embedded visual C++ 4.0

3) installed windows mobile 5.0 SDK [EDIT: only 2) or 3) is needed, i'm use'ing 3)]

4) followed the guide here http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms881539.aspx

it takes ages to load so be patient

and presto i've made a program that does something (it quits :))

if you got mobile 5.0 you can run it from your smartphone....i think :D

vindu2.exe

now that there is a hole thru i'm going to learn about the windows API so i can make usefull dialogs and menu's.

You didn't need to install VS2005 and eVC++4.0 - just one of them would have done - but if you have the choice and are just starting then the VS2005 with the mobile 5.0 sdk is probably the best way to go as the VS emulator is pretty good to work with

well done tho - keep up the good work :)

Definitely going to get involve in this, so would I be right in saying time and patient are the key to creating a proggy for windows mobile 5 more than professional experience ? as I have never done this before !

What are the list of programs that I will need to create proggies ?

How do I learn how to create a particular for a particular purpose ?

Cheers :)
