This code sample is named GPS. It demonstrates how to use managed code to write a C# Windows Mobile Global Positioning System (GPS) application. This code sample demonstrates how to wrap the native GPS APIs in a C# class. It demonstrates how to use "Platform Invoking" (PInvoke) to make calls to unmanaged APIs (in this case, CreateProcess).
- GPS Intermediate Driver Reference
- System.Threading Namespace
- System.Windows.Forms Namespace
To run the code sample
- 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\Cs\Gps\Gps.sln
C:\Program Files\Windows CE Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone SDK\Samples\Cs\Gps\Gps.sln
Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 launches and loads the solution.
- Build the solution (Ctrl+Shift+B).
- Deploy the solution (F5).
The mobile device supports GPS hardware, and make sure that the GPS hardware is setup correctly using the GPS Control Panel in Settings.
- The interface to the managed GPS API. use this class to open, close, and query the device state, and to query the position data from your GPS hardware.
- Contains the GPS position data received from the GPS hardware.
- Contains the GPS device state data received from the GPS hardware.
- Native memory allocation utilities.
