APP203 - Building Mobile Windows Forms Applications: Tips, Tricks and Guidelines

When managed code first came to devices, there was a lot of excitement because developers finally had the ability to make use of their existing skills and assets from the desktop world, into the Windows Mobile world. The truth is that building GUI applications for Windows Mobile, is not the same as building GUI applications for your PC or laptop. In this demo-driven session, we explore the platform differences between desktop and mobile, and also explain what you must do to address them. In addition to explaining best practises for building mobile applications for mobile users, we look at the UI guidelines for Windows Mobile and map those to the code required for meeting them. You will also gain an understanding of what is required in order to write cross-device code including what Windows Forms controls are best avoided and how to overcome potential .NET Compact Framework limitations.
