I am a veteran VB6 programmer, very new to VB.NET

I am beginning to program some things for Windows Mobile 5.0 in VB.NET.

Is there a place where I can find a guide to VB.NET programming with Pocket Outlook (POOM)?  I'd want some good VB.NET samples too.

Specifically, I want a way to view and delete email and/or text messages.  If I could find a sample of that, it would be great.

I haven't found anything good at all.  Mostly C++ stuff.

Nightman:

Thanks, but that site is from 2001... all the articles are 1999-2001.  Things have changed drastically since then with VB.net and the POOM.

I've seen that site, its pretty much dead as far as I can tell... nothing about Windows Mobile 5.0, nothing about VB.net 2005.

Yeah, there isn't an enormous amount out here. I have been considering tinkering with POOM as well, but just never seem to get round to it.

Don't forget though, if there is a C++ library out there that makes sense, you can still use it (I would imagine that a pinvoke works as well on the CF as it does elsewhere)

Remember, I'm all VB... I don't know C++ at all...

True, but you have done a LoadLib in VB before? Simply calling a static interface of a windows or other component?

I haven't done this in VB.NET (only C#) but it should be possible.

I appreciate the links, but nothing there mentions how to view and delete email and/or text messages.

I can't seem to find anything specific to VB.NET (although there are a number of C# samples, just not for POOM). I imagine that you will have to work using pinvoke to the C++ libraries.

What is Pinvoke?  Can you maybe send me to a guide?

pinvoke is very similar to the old LoadLib function in VB, where you load a non-COM interface into your dll and execute a function call (eg all API calls from VB)

some examples at:
