Send to Mobile Device – John Guin and I working together

I wanted to post about a new powertoy that John Guin and I worked on called "Send to mobile device".  Interesting story with this powertoy.  I wrote this powertoy back in October/November back when we shipped and I had some free time.  I didn't get a chance to clean it all up but the guts of the app worked just fine.  I used it on my personal machine to sync notes with my OneNote Mobile device.

Fast forward to a couple weeks ago when John came to my office asking what it would be like to create a powertoy which did this.  John had some new ideas like keeping a particular page in sync and not creating extra copies on the device.  I sent him my code and he got something working.  He fixed up a bug I had with my copy code and then he also added his extra functionality.  You can read John's version of this here: Making pages easier to sync with a mobile device.

Thanks a bunch to John for his help with this and getting this code to see the light of day!

    Hi Dan,

    I believe that I’ve asked this question before but is your group working on the daily calendars template for ON?  As I may have mentioned, it would be great to have the date in a shorter format (i.e 1-2-08) and to be able to download a notebook for the entire year (12 months).  Thanks for your help!

    Ok.  I give… where does it put the button?  

  3. tam says:

    I can’t find the button either, can anyone point me in the right direction please?  Thanks.

  4. JohnGuin says:

    The button is in the far right of the standard toolbar – it only has a text label named "Copy to device" on it.

    Thanks John, got it (it was hidden as there was another toolbar next to it). Thanks for sharing.

    I installled this and imported as single page – but I got 17 copies of it in my PPC (Windows Mobile 5). Can you think of any reason?

    Although I was able to delete 16 copies – this bug will seriously compromise the usefulness of this otherwise excellent tool.

  7. Mike Pluke says:

    I think I may have discovered the answer to my own problem (above) – I may have clicked on the "Copy to device" 17 times!

    The reason is that I have 2 sections for mobile devices in OneNote – and the dialog that asks me to choose which one to use is NOT displayed on top of OneNote – I completely missed the new OneNote item that got added to the taskbar! I assumed the command hadn’t worked and then made the classic multiple retry blunder!

  8. Thanks for letting us know!  *wipes brow*
