03 cross platform design

  1. 1. Cross Platform Design● Windows Mobile 6.5● Android 2.1 +● Two Form Designs● One set of ● Functions ● Menus ● Data structures
  2. 2. Layout in WM● Absolute Layouts● At present screen assumed to be 240x320● Auto scaling for same aspect ratio
  3. 3. Layout in Android ● Flow Containers ● Add controls to flow container not directly to Form ● Multiple controls in a flow layout, arranged horizontallyFlow container markers
  4. 4. Layout in Android● Flow containers can be dragged about● Layout width – space divided between controls● Layout height – default ● But image-items a special case ● Image height determines control height
  5. 5. Layout in Android● Outline View is useful
  6. 6. Linked Screen DesignsFor any form● Android design can be linked to Windows Design or not● If linked, then when you add a control to WM designer it automatically gets added to Android design● A sensible default layout is attempted by Meme IDE● Unlink a form when the design diverges
  7. 7. Unlinking a Design
  8. 8. Primary Platform● Linked screen designs● At present, if designing for Android and WM, then WM MUST be primary
  9. 9. Re-linking● If you re-link after making unlinked changes ● Those changes vanish ● They will reappear if you unlink again straight away
  10. 10. Summary● Two platforms● WM – absolute layout● Android – layout containers● Linked or unlinked designs
