Managed Code Application Example
WHAT’S IN THIS CHAPTER?
- Developing a managed code application for Compact 7 device
- Debugging a managed code application for Compact 7 device
Visual Studio 2008 provides a developer-friendly and efficient environment to develop a managed code application for a Windows Embedded Compact 7 device.
As part of the provided development resources, whether you work with C# or Visual Basic, the VS2008 IDE includes a large collection of controls to support managed code application development. You can use these managed code resources like Lego building blocks and simply drop multiple controls onto a Windows form to include the controls’ functions as part of your Compact 7 application.
In addition to the managed code development resources provided as part of the VS2008 IDE, a large pool of managed code development resources is available from third-party companies and community projects.
This chapter works through the exercises, showing the steps to develop a managed code application using C# from the Visual Studio 2008 IDE and deploy the application to a Windows Embedded Compact 7 target device for testing and debugging.
