Need help/advice please (New to Windows Mobile Application Development) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I would like to implement Windows Mobile technology into existing ASP.NET web application. I am new to Windows Mobile application development. 

     

    I wish to create an application running in my HTC (WinMo 6.5). The application must have certain features such as retrieve, update, and delete data in SQL Server 2008. My ASP.NET web application is written in C# and Silverlight. I am completely new to Windows Mobile app development and I was hoping someone can point me towards some tutorials that can show me how to achieve all this. I also need some tutorials in creating interactive GUI.  

    Also if anyone knows how best to go about creating such an application your input would be very much appreciated.

    I am currently using Visual Studio 2010 Professional (WinMo
     6.0 Smartphone SDK installed), and SQL Server 2008, is there anything else necessary for this?  Plug-in that supports extra features will be great.

    Thanks in advance.  Have a nice day  ^_^

  • Hi,

    VS2010 doesn't support developing WM6.5 or below version application, it only can develop Windows Phone 7.0. You can select vs2008 or 2005 to develop it. Here are some started documents:

  • Hi Ming Bian,

    Thank you! The tutorial link is useful.

     

    I have one question. I would like to implement Windows Mobile technology into existing ASP.NET web application (Final Year Project). I still have 9 months period before submission date. I hope to work as a software developer in Microsoft. Hence, impressive FYP will help me in this matter. I have 2 choices of development which are Window Mobile 6.5 app and Windows Phone 7 app. 

     

    For your information: 

    - I am currently using HTC Imagio (WinMo 6.5). I'm willing to buy a Windows Phone 7 phone if necessary

    - I'm familiar with C# and Silverlight

     

    My objective is to prepare an impressive FYP which utilizes Microsoft Technology. What is your advice and suggestion?

     

    Thanks in advance!

     

    Best regards,

    Alvin

  • Hi,

    If you want to develop mobile asp.net application, I suggest you post it on asp.net forum:
    http://forums.asp.net/48.aspx?Mobile+and+Handheld+Devices

    Since you know c# and silverlight, I suggest you do a windows Phone 7.0 application, which is using c# and silverlight. Here is the tutorial about WP7.0:
