Start & Stop ActiveSync

Windows Mobile 5 is so jam packed with cool new APIs that some of the smaller (but still very useful!) ones fall through the PR cracks.  Here are two that I just got remineded of by a post in the smartphone.developer newsgroup:

ActiveSyncStart & ActiveSyncStop

These device-side APIs do exactly what the names imply.  To kick off or stop a synchornization from a desktop app, just use CeRapiInvoke to call them.

    Why won’t this let us choose Sync over BT?

    Excellent question 🙂 I’ll log that as a suggestion.

    Great 🙂

    Any news on why we can’t specify Bluetooth?

    I know this isn’t the right place for this, but…

    Wouldn’t it make sense if ActiveSync could synchronize folders between a desktop and a ppc’s storage card?

    I know there are apps for this, but they are are a bit rough.

    It would be great of if we can specify Bluetooth connection for synchronization…

    Can you fix the links to ActiveSyncStart and ActiveSyncStop above?
