This project is a C# .NET Compact Framework application that provides editing and viewing of ToDoLists created with .dan.g's ToDoList program, on a Pocket PC. This project is an example of the basics required for a .NET Compact Framework application and shows how to use XML, a tree control, and a tab control, as well as a good use for recursion.
The original Pocket PC TodoListViewer was written by Kyle Tillman. He didn't have the time to add the features he wanted to, so I grabbed his project and have added some of the features we both wanted.
I had some fun getting my controls to acknowledge the SIP when it was displayed, but found the easiest way was to place them all in a top level panel and just resize that panel when the SIP was displayed/hidden. That top level panel would then resize its components and so on down the control tree.
The project is currently being developed using MS Visual Studio 2008 and Microsoft's .NET 2.0 SDK.
- Files not loading
Issue: The application cannot load some ToDoList files created with older versions of the ToDoList program.
Solution: Install the most recent version of the ToDoList program, load the ToDoList file, and save as a new file. This causes the XML to be upgraded and appears to fix the issue.
Thanks To: Kyle Tillman.
- Fix display for landscape mode
Issue: I need to re-arrange the layout of the screen when the device is in landscape mode.
Thanks To: -
- Details panel display
Issue: When the Details panel is first displayed, the tabs are off the bottom of the screen.
Solution: I'm still working on this issue. For now use the workaround.
Workaround: Displaying and hiding the SIP moves the details up to the correct place.
Thanks To: Andy Aspell-Clark.
