Obtaining the Appropriate SDKs and Tools

Obtaining the Appropriate SDKs and Tools

To develop Windows Mobile applications using the .NET CF, you need to download the SDK for each platform. Here are the SDKs you need:

? Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK for Pocket PC

? Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK for Smartphone

? Windows Mobile 6 Professional and Standard Software Development Kits Refresh

You can download the SDKs from Microsoft's web site (http://microsoft.com/downloads) at no cost. The best tool to develop Windows Mobile applications using the .NET CF is to use the Visual Studio IDE, using Visual Studio 2005 Professional or above.

If you are using Visual Studio 2005, you need to download the Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK for Pocket PC and Smartphone (as described earlier). If you are using Visual Studio 2008, the Windows Mobile 5.0 SDKs for Pocket PC and Smartphone are already installed by default. For both versions, you need to download the Windows Mobile 6 SDKs to develop applications for Windows Mobile 6 devices.

With the relevant SDKs installed, the first step toward Windows Mobile development is to launch Visual Studio 2008 and create a new project. Select the Smart Device project type, and then select the Smart Device Project template (see Figure 18-5).

The Add New Smart Device Project dialog opens. You can select the target platform as well as the version of the .NET CF you want to use (see Figure 18-6).

You are now ready to start developing for Windows Mobile. Figure 18-7 shows the design view of a Windows Mobile Form in Visual Studio 2008 designer.
