I'll tell you what I'm doing... it's amazingly simple

in visual studio .net 2003 create a new [c#] smart device project, and on the next dialog say it is for the pocket pc

then you have a window you can mess with and a bunch of the .NET api to use, you ought to be able to start the application in the emulator [.net 2003 comes with the pocket pc 2002 emulator, I think you should get the 2003 emulator as well]

there are a bunch of weird quirks when compared to the full .NET api though... list views don't have the tag attribute, the close button of a window is actually a minimize button, the OK button of a window [at the top right] is a close button, you need to disable both the minimize and maximize buttons for the window to make the minimize X become a close OK, there is no enum.parse, it isn't trivial to create a non-fullscreen window [unless it has no border]


we are using c# for our projects and visual studio, not embeded visual tools. Things get done a lot more quickly when you are used to the tools already.
