Which control should I use RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi fellow programmers ,


    I am new to winmobile programming and need some help in developing an app which has a look and feel like the "security center app" in windows xp.


    This app is for pocketpc ( comptabile with winmobile 5.0 and 6.0 ) .  The requirements are


    1. The app should have content boxes which expand when the user taps the expand button.( may be located on the top right hand of the control ) .  In the normal state of the app , only the title/info bar of the control/dialog is visible. It is only when the user taps , the content boxes expand. This is toggling between normal and expand states.

     please see the security center app to see the working.

    2. The app should have scroll bars in case after expanding the width of the content boxes exceed the length of the screen.


    I need some help in determining which control to use in this case. someone suggested that I look into screen lib which i am going to do. appreciate anyone who could guide me in the right direction in the form of articles , documentation or may be code samples .


    thanking you all,

  • There is no standard control available that performs that.

    I would go with ownerdrawn control or embedded dialogs (DS_CONTROL).
