AYGShell API Extensions
As of Windows CE .NET 4.2, OEMs can include API compatibility support for the Pocket PC 2002 shell in their Windows CE-based platforms by means of the AYGShell API extensions. These extensions introduce common Pocket PC user interface elements to the standard shell, for example:
- Full-screen dialog boxes
- Support for multiple software-based input panels (SIPs)
- Menu bars
- The New button
If a Windows CE-based device includes support for the AYGShell API extensions and uses the same processor that a Pocket PC 2002 application was compiled for, then the application binaries can run directly on the device. If the device uses a different processor, then the source code for the Pocket PC application must be recompiled for the Windows CE-based platform on the device.
The following topics provide additional information about the AYGShell API extensions:
- Pocket PC-style Menu Bars
- Pocket PC-style New Button
- Supporting Full-Screen Dialog Boxes
- Supporting the Input Panel
