While much research has been done to determine the best native Windows APIs to use, little has been done to assist developers in adapting their distributed .NET Framework-based applications for mobile environments. In this paper, we present sample methods to obtain system network connection information using the classes found in the .NET Framework. The initial intention is to enable individual applications to get this information on their own—the laissez-faire approach. But the hope is that thes...

As we design for mobility, we can no longer just "assume" the hardware, the power supply, or the availability and quality of connectivity. Instead, we must question every assumption, every aspect of the platform, from hardware to software to application architecture. Four key questions in particular should be top-of-mind during the early phases of your mobile application design....

Wireless means more than checking e-mail at Starbucks, or a using a PDA at a trade show. At home, my son's iMac is connected to the Internet via an Apple Airport card—that is, an 802.11b "WiFi" connection at 11Mbps. While my desktop is hooked to my network via Fast Ethernet, my trusty laptop has WiFi, but no wired Ethernet—and I'm assured of a connection nearly anyplace I go. Indeed, wireless is almost ubiquitous, and it will only get more so. Thanks to the introduction of the Intel Centrino mob...

As the market for handhelds explodes, so does your opportunity for riches and glory. But no one wants to diddle with porting old code when they could be writing something new. That's why it's time for a new approach. Forget porting. Write a single code base, then extend it for deployment across multiple devices. The key to your newfound glory is the widespread adoption of .NET Compact Framework (CF), a smaller-footprint version of .NET Framework and the foundation of Microsoft's latest gig, "Win...

Building a Better Mobile Mousetrap

I'm not a mobile user. My primary PC is a dual-processor desktop with a huge 23-inch display. I have a laptop, but mainly I use it while making a once-a-month business trip to the East Coast. My cell phone doesn't have Java or BREW, I don't have a Blackberry or pager, and my PDA gathers dust in a drawer. And I'm not in field sales, field service or field anything. So, like many of you, I've found the mantra "Build Mobilized Applications" a little, well, impractical. Mobility conjures up the imag...

Windows Mobile™ 2003 Second Edition software enables devices with landscape and square screen displays. This is an addition to the traditional portrait-only displays that have been on earlier Pocket PCs. When an application designed for portrait displays is run on a square or landscape display, the operating system will automatically add a vertical scroll bar to the form which enables the user to view the entire form. This happens only when there is a control which would be hidden from the user ...

As display technology improves, it is becoming possible to fit more pixels into the same area. This additional resolution can be used to fit more items on the screen, or it can be used to draw the same items more sharply. In the latter case, the display is said to have increased in dots per inch (DPI), a logical value representing how densely packed with pixels a display area is. Print media has taken advantage of high-DPI technology for a long time. A document printed on a 1200-dpi printer prin...

As you are developing applications for new high-resolution Pocket PCs or Smartphones with 192 DPI resolution displays, you may wonder where the new high-resolution bitmaps and resources should go. The simplest solution is to include them in the same EXE alongside the old, low-resolution resources. However, this approach wastes storage space. Device screens only have one resolution, which never changes for that device. Therefore, if the application is deployed to a 96 DPI device, it doesn't need ...

The Ultimage GMan game demo is the culmination of my series of GAPI wrapper articles. I first started this series as a challenge to myself to develop a graphics library that ran under managed code and both outperformed GDI and implemented specific functionality (alpha blending, destination key transparency, etc.) not available through GDI. Having achieved this goal, I decided to take it even further by developing a level of a playable game demo. To do this, I elicited the help of two extremely t...
