We posted a job a while ago to have mobile devices for .net communicate with unmanaged code (Delphi) DLL
The UI on the Mobile device the screen layout and all the properties for the GUI controls, and the event actions of the controls for the device is data driven and stored on the server in a advantage database (Sybase) or could be stored on the device as XML.
The screens are built and maneuvered at runtime on the device
The control could be data-bind to the database on the server. The way this is done is that to each control there is a property for a SQL statement that could run by calling a refresh to the control
The HandHeldProgram Sends and receives XML data and instructions to the WAS service and the WAS service sends and receive XML from/to the [url removed, login to view]
If we could build any visual components by itself and bind it to the data in theory we should be able to build on the desktop any Advantage Database PPC program.
The solution consist of 3 parts
[url removed, login to view] Designer to design the screens and setup the events and stores it to the database. This program runs on windows desktop
2. A service (WFC) that runs on windows its main function is to communicate with the program that runs on the handheld devices and the Delphi DLL we would refer to this program as [url removed, login to view]
3. the program that runs on the handheld device its main function to build the controls and sending the XML code to the service on events etc
(The Delphi dll we do our self and is not part of this job )
At some point the original developer was not able more to continue with this job because of health issues a friend of his took it over but was not that capable.
A great part of this job is done and works ok but there are some parts that are not yet tested and may still have some bugs or not completed yet.
We would need someone to finish this job and add some features if you think this is for you I would send you some more info
We Would need a small working demo in order to get the job. Any enhancement to the job (no need to send code) in order to see you understand it
