I'm wanting to learn how to write programs for my PDA (HP iPaq h6365 with Pocket PC 2003 Premium).
I am a complete noob, so please be very basic with lots of comments.
1. I want to download free software to program in; one of my firends said I should be able to use the Microsoft Express versions of their programming tools (such as VB Express) along with the Pocket PC 2003 SDK. I have a 2nd friend that says the express versions won't work, so please advise what to download & how to integrate them. I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2.
2. Please describe a step by step procedure on how to write and compile a basic program (say in VB if the express version is an option) that, for example, opens a GUI with 2 text boxes (the user types in a number into each), when the user clicks a button the program adds the 2 numbers and displays the result in a label below the button.
[Optional] If you could also add some links to additional very basic examples on the web I'd really appreciate it [Option - not required to answer this question].
