    Hello,

    as I had to state, the contact entry of Outlook does not turn into the ring tone field encapsulatedly. I have found the source code in the forum for the Outlook.dll now.

    I would like the class contact around this field now/enlarge members. Which C # compilers have I to use and IDE?

    Many thanks for yours information in advance.

    Yours sincerely
    Amalkotey

    Hi,
    Could you please be more precise? What do you mean by
    "I would like the class contact around this field now/enlarge members"?

    Have you found only the source code of the dll?

    You will need either Visual Studio 2005 Standard (which I use) or Visual Studio 2008 Professional to be able to compile for the device. These cost money :(

    You could use SharpDevelop SharpDevelop @ic#code which is free - you also need some SDKs from Microsoft but they are free to download. I haven't used this but some others here have I believe.

    Edit: I should also point out that if you want to forego the use of an IDE you can write your code in the editor of your choice and compile manually with the C# compiler that is installed on any desktop running .NET 2.0 (this is what Basic4ppc uses for optimised compilation). To compile for the device you need the Compact Framework installed on the desktop. However creating the correct response file and command line can be "interesting" if you take this approach.

    @agraham:

    the costs are not the problem since I am working as a freelance software developer. I have installed both Visual studio 2008 and SharpDevelop 3.0 have.
    Visual studio stops the construction because it the following Namenspates not findest:

    Code:
    using Microsoft.WindowsMobile.PocketOutlook; 
    using Microsoft.WindowsMobile.PocketOutlook.MessageInterception; 
    using System.Drawing;
    where can I find these?

    best regards

    You need to install the WM5.0 SDK from Microsoft and they are then found in the Program File\Windows CE Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 5.0 pocket PC SDk\Designtimereferences folder.

    However a new SmartDevice template should now be available for WM 5.0 projects in Visual Studio, called "ppc" on my system, that has the new WindowsMobile libraries already added to the .NET tab in the AddReference dialog.

    EDIT:- System.Drawing should already be available in the AddReference dialog.

    Not work

    @Agraham:

    Everything ok, on the whole works. A following error message is shown making:

    Der Typ "Microsoft.WindowsMobile.IApplicationLauncher" ist in einer nicht referenzierten Assembly definiert. Fügen Sie einen Verweis auf die Assembly "Microsoft.WindowsMobile, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" hinzu. G:\esdaSO.net\OutlookEx.dll\OutlookEx.dll\OutlookEx.cs

    Following the code:

    Code:
    private MessageInterceptor mi = new MessageInterceptor();
    I always thought, this the variable new is initialized first with the keyword. What is the fault? thanks for your help!

    best regards

    I thought after my last post that as you have Visual Studio 2008 then the WM 5.0 and maybe 6.0 SDKs are probably already installed so you won't need to install them.

    The error you have there is that the compiler cannot find the interface IApplicationLauncher which the MessageInterceptor class inherits. It is telling you to add a reference to Microsoft.WindowsMobile which is where IApplicationLauncher is defined.

    Problem

    Hello Agraham,

    thank you for your help! On the whole everything works faultlessly. I could make the OutlookEx.dll. I have written a demo variably to test the dll. I get an error message in Basic4PPC V6.50. I have the same programme into loaded the beta 6.78, and read there the programme make itself. What is this due to?

    best regards

    OutlookExe_Demo.sbp optimise compiles OK for me under version 6.50 and OutlookExe_Demo 6.78-IDE.sbp optimise compiles OK for me under version 6.80. The error you are showing says that the Contact Object does not include a Ringtone member which normally would indicate a problem with the dll (or the source if you are merging it from the Libraries folder) but what you posted all works fine for me :confused:

    @Agraham:

    I have installed Basic4PPC newly so. The dll works now. I will publish the OutlookEx.dll for everyone. Again thanks for your help.

    @AGraham:

    The fault is not due to the IDE. I have noticed you make then correctly, if I delete the file OutlookEx.cs. I have added the namensspace "Microsoft.Windows.Mobile" again and the fault nevertheless comes. So it must lie to the dll. Do you have an idea?

    I don't understand. What happens if you delete Outlook.cs and where are you deleting it from? Is it from the Libraries folder of Basic4ppc?

    @Agraham:

    Please excuse my bad one English. Yes, I have both OutlookEx.dll and the OutlookEx.cs into the Librarie list copied. I remove the CS file, the programme is made correctly.

    The problem is one of references. Basic4ppc doesn't know that OutlookEx.cs needs references to Microsoft.Windows.Mobile.dll and Microsoft.WindowsMobile.PocketOutlook.dll to compile. These libraries are extra to the .NET 2.0 Compact Framework standard libraries, being part of the WM 5.0 SDK, and are not in the same place so Basic4ppc can't find them. This is partly why Erel does not include Outlook.cs with Basic4ppc.

    The other, real, reason for Erel not including Outlook.cs is that only developers will have the WM 5.0 SDK with these dlls available so Outlook.cs won't compile on most systems as the required dlls are missing.

    So just post the dll itself and forget about the source.

    Thank you for the information. I have removed the source code now.
