The get_OutlookCompatible method returns a value that indicates whether the mobile device is partnered with a desktop computer running Outlook, as opposed to running Schedule+.
HRESULT get_OutlookCompatible( VARIANT_BOOL * pfCompat );
This method is useful because there are differences in behavior between Outlook and Schedule+. For example, a task with a start date of None must also have a due date of None if partnered with a desktop computer running Schedule+.
The VARIANT_BOOL data type (also known as VT_BOOL) uses the value -1 to represent TRUE and 0 to represent FALSE. It is defined in the wtypes.h header file in the following manner:
typedef short VARIANT_BOOL;
A common programming error occurs when, for readability purposes, you want to set a VARIANT_BOOL value to TRUE or FALSE. You can achieve the same effect by using the aliases VARIANT_TRUE and VARIANT_FALSE, which are also defined in the wtypes.h header file.
#define VARIANT_TRUE ((VARIANT_BOOL)0xffff) #define VARIANT_FALSE ((VARIANT_BOOL)0)
Schedule+ is not supported in platform versions later than Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition. In this case, pfCompat always returns VARIANT_TRUE.
