Send Feedback

This code sample is named PoomMaster. It demonstrates the use of the Pocket Outlook Object Model (POOM) API. The application displays currently stored PIM items (Contacts, Tasks, and calendar Appointments) using an Owner-Drawn List-view Control. There is also functionality to create new PIM items using the IItem interface.

Usage

To run the code sample

  1. Navigate to the solution file (*.sln), and double-click it. By default, the solution files are copied to the following folders:

    C:\Program Files\Windows CE Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC SDK\Samples\CPP\Win32\Poommaster\PoomMaster.sln

    C:\Program Files\Windows CE Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone SDK\Samples\CPP\Win32\Poommaster\PoomMaster.sln

    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 launches and loads the solution.

  2. Build the solution (Ctrl+Shift+B).
  3. Deploy the solution (F5).

Remarks

For the sake of simplicity, only a few properties for each item are shown — typically the subject and one or two other essential values (such as a phone number for contact, or a date and time for an appointment).

Functionally, PoomMaster has three modes of display, each accessible from the Modes menu: Tasks, Contacts, or Appointments (labeled as Calendar in the menu). New items corresponding to the current mode can be created from each display using New Item from the Options menu. The Options menu also contains a Quit item. This is for the user's convenience, and is not demonstrative of typical Pocket PC or Smartphone application behavior.

Requirements

Pocket PC SDK: Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC SDK.
Smartphone SDK: Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone SDK.
Development Environment: Visual Studio 2005.
ActiveSync: Version 4.0.
