CE.NET 4.1

Hello

I bought Symbol device with wince.net 4.1 installed. After
CF app compilation and running I see menus at the top of
window, not on bottom like in classical PPC. How can I
write app to be universal? Do I have to force menu and
toolbar to be bottom-located?

Thanks

Jacek

PPC is a layer that sits on top of CE. It enforces the PPC UI elements that
you are used to, such as the menu at the bottom. These are not available
for CE, so you'll have to either have 2 binaries or have internal logic to
handle the differences.

Hi Jacek,
You may also nottice that the SIP EnabledChange is not fired in CE.net 4.1

Chris & others, could some kind of message be intercepted for this?

Thanks,
Alberto Silva

Is there some info in registry that allows to distinguish
CE.NET device from PPC? (on desktop or PDA)?

and another question:

What is the difference among the following:

Device - system
=============================
Palmsize PC - ?
Handheld PC - ?
Pocket PC Windows CE 1.x - 2.x
Pocket PC 2000 - Windows CE 3.0
Pocket PC 2002 - Microsoft Pocket PC
Pocket PC 2003 - Windows Mobile 2003
? - Windows CE.NET

I got lost with all these WinCE version
and device types:)))

Thanks

Jacek

I believe that there is a FAQ of some sort on www.microsoft.com/embedded
which covers the main differences. You can read the platform ID from the
registry. It's a GUID which is the same on all PPC devices of a given
generation and, probably, different for every Windows CE.NET device from
every manufacturer.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Windows CE Tools]
"Platform"="{<guid>}"
