Let's see the details of each platform:
  • Windows Mobile Windows Mobile: For the Windows Mobile platforms, all you have to do is select the device to use:
    • the default characteristics of the processor used.
    • the default characteristics of the display mode (standard or VGA).
    • the default characteristics of the Start menu.
    • the default characteristics of the main menu of the window.
    • the default characteristics of the dimensions of the windows.
    • the default characteristics of the size of the system bar.
    • the maximum number of menu options.
    • the image used in test mode. This image allows you to run the test of your application in an environment corresponding to the environment of the users.
  • Android Android: For the Android platforms: WINDEV Mobile displays the list of platforms created for Android. You have the ability to edit the description of the platform or to add another one.
    When adding a platform, select the platform and the requested resolution.
    When modifying a platform, you have the ability to define:
    • the type of screen used. The characteristics regarding the size and the DPI can be directly modified (in this case, the size becomes a custom size).
    • the image used in test mode. This image allows you to run the test of your application in an environment corresponding to the environment of the users.
    • the path of the Android SDK used. See Installing the Android SDK for more details.

    • the height of system bar.
    • the height of the toolbar.
    • the DPI of the screen.

All these characteristics define the runtime platform.
When is the runtime platform taken into account?
The selected runtime platform is taken into account:
  • when creating the windows: the selected dimensions will be automatically proposed for the new windows.
  • when creating the executable. The generated executable corresponds to a specific platform (an executable created for Mobile will not operate on Android and conversely).
  • when starting the application in test mode. The selected image is used to properly view the application windows.

Developing for Smartphone

If you choose to develop an application for Smartphone, don't forget to save all the created files on the "SD Card". Otherwise, when the Smartphone is switched off, the information not saved on the "SD Card" will be lost.
How to modify the runtime platform?
The runtime platform can be modified:
  • when creating a project.
  • in the project description ("Project .. Project description", "Platform" button in the "Project" tab).in the project description ("Project .. Project description", "Platform description" button in the "Project" tab).in the project description:
    • On the "Project" pane, in the "Project" group, click "Description".
    • In the "Project" tab, click the "Platform description" button.
The selected platform is valid for the entire current project.
AndroidWindows Mobile Automatic detection
WINDEV Mobile proposes to automatically detect the characteristics of the platform connected to the current computer ("Detect the characteristics automatically" button). If the characteristics of the connected platform differ from the selected platform, WINDEV Mobile displays the elements that differ and modifies these elements if necessary.
When creating a new project, if a Pocket PC/Smartphone/Mobile running Android is connected to the current computer, WINDEV Mobile automatically detects the characteristics of the connected platform.
