    ThinkingRock (TR) is an open source, multi-platform (Java) task management software following David Allen's Getting Things Done methodology.
    I have decided to write a small PocketPC Companion program for TR and this was the perfect occasion to get involved in Basic4PPC (I have bought it more than one year ago but never had any time to seriously use it ;-) ). Well, now that I have played with it (see the web page below); I love this programming environment. It is true that the documentation is sometime terse but Erel is very helpful and this forums are full of competent and helping people! I think that I have really found a nice replacement for the ForwardPass environment that I have regretted when the developers had to stop this activity... Basic4PPC is as easy to use as FP and its libraries allow much richer functionality.

    Here the full story (with a lot of screen shots):, the executable and the source code.

    This is a follow up to this thread

    But I have a small problem with Unicode, as discussed in this thread.

    From your phpforum thread:

    It is not so dificult to manage the diferent layouts....
    There is a built in one of the libs ( i can't remember if it is formlib, or hardwarelib), that manages the screen rotation by firing an event...
    within this event, you just have to reposition the controls according to the new form size...

    Thanks Paulo! Erel has also pointed me this library. I am actually trying to do it without using any external library (the event is not indispensable in my applet, I can just include a "Refresh" menu item that the user can click on.

    Best regards,

    A new version of TRPPC is available now from the web site:

    Version 2.3 - You can now view your action as trees organized by different criteria (Context/Topic/Project). It should be a little bit more usable...

    It now also uses Hardware and ControlEx libraries.
