CHOOSEFONT in WinMo 5/6 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I need to implement a font picker dialog in WinMo 5.0. I would like to use CHOOSEFONT struct and ChooseFont() function. I have it working in WinCe50, but I am having trouble compiling with WinMo 5.0 SDK. Compilation errors are that CHOOSEFONT struct is an undeclared identifier, and yes indeed, it is missing from CommDlg.h. I assume that compilation should not be a problem per following msdn page:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa932700.aspx

    Is documentation wrong, or am I missing something?

  • Hi,

    I think you are right, there is mistake on MSDN. I can't find the function in WM6 SDK either.  The function is declared in WinCE verson of     commdlg.h which is not availlable in WM6's.

    Cheers,
    Jennifer

  • Hi JenniFer,

    thank you for confirming my and my teammates suspicion. I am fairly new to mobile development so this was quite surprising for me. However, my teammates commented somewhat ruefully "You ain't seen nothing yet..."

    I will be opening incident with Microsoft in a few days to confirm this. Once I know something for sure, I will update this thread.

    Regards,
    Tomasz...
