Programming Visual Basic for Palm OS Paperback
This volume offers a framework for application design, development and installation for the Palm handheld.
While the reader should have experience with the property-method-event model of VB programming, no familiarity with Palm products is assumed or required.
It is written primarily for corporate software developers, software architects, middle-ware developers and engineering managers who need to understand the strengths and limits of programming on the Palm, and how to integrate Visual Basic language Palm applications into their corporate IT infrastructure or product offerings.
It teaches readers how to create a host of business applications including security, wireless and database connectivity programs.
Topics covered include: complete coverage of Palm user interface and database programming techniques; data synchronization including how to build, test and install a conduit using Visual Basic and COM; Web clipping applications and how to interface those applications to Microsoft's Active Server Page framework; extending the AppForge Palm application using shared libraries and Active-X like components; and porting Palm-based applications to the PocketPC platform. The book is designed to help the Visual Basic desktop programmer to break into the Palm market.
