Hi,

I was wondering if there was a way I could open setting screens through code on Windows Mobile? By setting screen I mean stuff like Bluetooth, Alarm, phone volume, etc. I would like to create an application that acts as a portal to all the settings provided through the control panel. I'm writing this in C# but would also be open to use pinvoke if needed. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

look here at page 2: http://www.codeguru.com/cpp/w-p/ce/pocketpc/article.php/c9345__2/

and try that table values on your device. they might be changed for recent OS versions, but mostly they work

Thanks for the response :)

I know the solution you provided should work (it just makes sense), however it does not. The phone I'm using does not contain the ctlpnl.exe file. I'm using a BlackJack II with Windows Mobile 6 for my testing.

Any other thoughts as to how I can show these screens?

ok, haven't realized that you mean Smartphone :) (WM6 Standard in your case)
what I advise to use Remote Process Viewer to check what processes are running when you navigate to Settings matually, but e.g. on the emulator it is Settings.exe

Thank you again for the response - I should  of specified WM6 Standard a head of time.. my bad :)

I see that Settings.exe will be what I need, now I just need to figure out how to get to all the different settings screen I'd want :)

well, try the same command line parameters as ctlpnl.exe accepts, something might be quite similar

also, google for something like that:

Perfect :) I had meant to accept your solution but got side tracked with making sure Settings.exe would work :)
