Making WIN32 Applications Mobile

A key resource to learn how to repurpose Windows applications for handheld devices

When handheld computers were power-hungry and memory-poor, synchronizing calendars and perhaps reading e-mail were all the applications most people needed. Now that handhelds have more power than first-generation desktop computers, the opportunity to do more than offer subsets of preexisting information is wide open. Enter Windows CE, a subset of Windows that has been optimized for handheld devices. In this book, experienced CE developer Nancy Nicolaisen provides an ideal reference and road map for directly porting Win32 applications when it’s possible, and a set of metrics that can be used to determine how best to proceed when it isn’t.

In addition, Nicolaisen:

  • Explains how the "subset" of Windows CE APIs diverges from the standard Win32 set
  • Shows you how to understand the embedded-system "bias" inherent in Windows CE
  • Demonstrates how to write applications that use this bias as a strength
  • Covers Unicode, which is mandatory for Windows CE (but optional in Win32)
  • Explains how to consider the effect of various screen resolutions

The companion web site contains all source code from the book.

About Gearhead Press
Responding to the ongoing demands of IT professionals for current and reliable information on the latest programming technologies, Wiley Technical Publishing introduces the Gearhead Press titles. These books, written by accomplished trainers in their respective fields, focus on using real-world case studies to give readers the best information on leading topics. The Gearhead Press titles are characterized by two imprints: In the Trenches and Point to Point. Both imprints include fast-paced books written by fellow IT professionals who have been there and done that. In the Trenches books guide readers to proficiency, and serve as practical, hands-on references after the initial tasks are accomplished. The Point to Point titles invite readers to join an IT team at a model company and implement technologies in real-world environments–demonstrating actual problems and solutions.
