Cool, this is perfect for Blogtronix as we are a .NET platform and now we can offer a complete solution for our customers and even hit MOSS under the belt with their own solution. Need to start testing this as well as the new Amazon could windows solution.
Hi all, I have to develop my first serious application in native code (Compact Framework has been excluded for several reasons) that should run over CE.NET 4.2, PocketPC 2003 and future versions (and possibly also over SmartPhones).
I wouldn't write code directly with Win APIs, I prefer to use a library such as MFC / ATL / WTL but I have several doubts such as:
- I read that WTL is a good library, that runs also on SmartPhones, but does it run also on CE.NET 4.2 (and future version, such as 5.0), or I have to modify it?
- MFC doesn't run on SmartPhones and is bigger than WTL, has it got some features so that I should prefer it over WTL?
Can anybody give me some advice to choose the right library?
Good post. You crack me up. Yea, the MFC / Native code world is good.
I would like to point out that with some good design skills, it's easy to create a generic layer that encapsulates the MFC nitty gritty. I have done that, and now I have an elegant C++ implementation of MVC, driven by an XML language more powerful than XAML.
Anyways, I got the idea from some Silverlight marketing announcement that one can use Silverlight from an MFC application. I can't find anything about it. Did I imagine that, or is this possible?
