Managed Library

Managed Library

Overview of the Managed Library for the Tablet PC.

The common language runtime is the foundation of the Microsoft® .NET Framework. You can think of the common language runtime as an agent that manages code at execution time, providing core services such as memory management, thread management, and remoting, while also enforcing strict code safety. In fact, the concept of code management is a fundamental principle of the common language runtime. Code that targets the common language runtime is known as managed code. Code that does not target the common language runtime is known as unmanaged code.

The Framework class library is a comprehensive, object-oriented collection of reusable classes that you can use to develop applications ranging from traditional command-line or graphical user interface (GUI) applications to applications based on the latest innovations provided by ASP.NET and Web Services.

The Tablet PC Managed Library contains a set of managed objects that extends the Framework to provide support for input and output of handwriting on Tablet PC as well as data interchange with other computers.

The following topics describe high-level relationships between the members of the application programming interface (API), and notes on using the Tablet PC platform Managed Library.
