Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode HTML tags when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Ignore HTML tags in this message" check box is unchecked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question in one forum from another, unrelated forum (such as the lounge). It will be deleted.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
When answering a question please:
Read the question carefully
Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar
If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or mark it down. Insults are not welcome
If the question is inappropriate then click the 'vote to remove message' button
Insults, slap-downs and sarcasm aren't welcome. Let's work to help developers, not make them feel stupid.
You haven't mentioned anything about what the app is supposed to do, your skill set, what tools you intend to develop the app with etc.
At the very least do some initial research, see how far you get, and then (and only then) post a specific question when you need some help.
"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - C.A.R. Hoare
There is no single unified IDE for both mobile platforms unless you are considering cross platform development. In which case I would highly recommend Xamarin. A good introductory article (written by me) can be found here Introduction to Xamarin.Android[^]
How i can download from ftp server specific file in Windows Mobile (C#).I Have ftp link,username and password. i want only download. I dont want use non standart compenents. (OpenNETCF dll returned error codes)
I'm not overly familiar with Windows Mobile but to my knowledge there aren't any native FTP clients. You can of course write your own if you don't want to use a third-party component. I wrote my own FTP client a while ago when I needed an FTP client for my .NET applications.
