Windows Mobile SDK Documentation Update


The Windows Mobile SDK Documentation has been updated today, with a release dated September 2006.


Please use this update as your primary source of information on the Windows Mobile SDK. This release replaces all others, especially the out-dated documentation that ships by default with the Smartphone and Pocket PC SDKs.


The easiest way to use this documentation is to make sure that Visual Studio is configured to use Online Help. You can also go to MSDN directly (links below) which will always display the latest documentation.


As well as many smaller corrections, this latest update includes:

    You need to check your links as they are internal links to http://msdnprod rather than the public url – http://msdn.microsoft.com

    I want to be able using my Treo 700w(Windows MObile 5) to go to my

    website http://www.ryanismy.name and use the embedded WMP to tune into my

    online radio station.  I have the following code that when using my

    Treo I see the player and a play button, but I choose play a message

    appears saying Parameters are incorrect.  This code works fine through

    any browser on a regular PC, but not through PIE.

    <HTML>

    <HEAD>

    </HEAD>

    <BODY>

    <OBJECT ID="Player" height="320" width="240"

     CLASSID="CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6">

    </OBJECT>

    <INPUT TYPE="BUTTON" NAME="BtnPlay" VALUE="Play" OnClick="StartMeUp()">

    <SCRIPT>

    <!–

    function StartMeUp ()

    {

       Player.uiMode = "none";

       Player.URL = "Myip";  ////omitted my real IP(this is a note not

    appear in real code)

    }

    function ShutMeDown ()

    {

       Player.controls.stop();

    }

    –>

    </SCRIPT>

    </BODY>

    </HTML>

    Thanks to anyone who tell me what Im trying to do can be accomplished!

  4. As reported on the US Windows Mobile team blog, the Windows Mobile SDK Documentation set has been updated

  5. Dan Rowley says:

    I don’t suppose these updates are available in download form so I can update my local help?  MSDN online is all well and good until I’m sitting on an airplane. 🙂

  6. Sébastien Mouren says:

    I reformulate the previous comment.

    Is there any way to update the locally deployed documentation?

  7. MSDN Archive says:

    No, not at this moment.

    Not having local help that’s current is painful. We know it, and we’re trying to fix it.
