    Hi All

    I'm new about WM development , I'm from IBM mini system (AS/400)

    is it possible to call the dll for DeviceLock ? (shutil.dll)

    I want to make a Today program
    with all appointments (in a scrolling window)
    with a launcher
    displaying Date/time
    able to add today's plugin in it (with dll)

    and an icon to lock the device

    Is it possible with basic4ppc ? :sign0085:

    Basic4ppc relies heavily on Microsoft .Net Compact Framework.
    While there are many advantages to the .Net CF it is not the right tool if you want to build a complex Today program.
    You will need a lower level programming language. Probably C++.

    Ok I understand

    so now I've found a wonderful Today Plugin (WAD2)

    I want to use Basic4ppc for my utilities (like QuickSMS I've seen here)

    Can I adapt this program to be able to make shortcuts (I want to send sms from links to shorcuts )

    Yes. You can create a simple program that accepts the SMS message as an argument and sends this message. It is not difficult to create shortcuts. The shortcuts format is pretty simple.

    I've seen the samples which are in Basic4ppc directory

    tested all of them with debug and Run , it is nice , I like it

    just a pity I can't make exe (even if for 2 or 3 days)

    I don't understand all but it is a good product for my wishes (for my utilities)
    Birthday program is very nice (especially the little calendar)

    Can I have a link with all possible codes ?
    Is it possible to call dll directly ?

    Is it possible to read registry entries ?

    Is it possible find system values ? like Battery charge

    Yes. All the official documentation and some of the user contributed libraries documentation is available here: Basic4ppc - Windows Mobile programming and Pocket PC Development
    The complete list of available users libraries:

    Only .Net dlls can be called directly. However often a wrapper library is required.
