It appears that not many of you have VS2008. I'm sure that you could do this in VS2005 and then? I can upgrade to VS2008. I just need to know how to enable the scan feature on a new form and this should be very quick and simple for any competent developer. If you download the Dolphin SDK? and open the DecodeSample application you will see what I am trying to achieve. I realise you may not have the hardware on your end to test this but I have and can test it as required.
Project price and deadline increased, and hopefully someone will pick this up.
The original request has been moved below as I ran out of room here.
I have Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition. I need to create an application for a HHP 9550 Dolphin Scanner running Windows Mobile 2003 Professional. I require an SDK from the Manufacturer to enable and use the barcode scanning features of the device. HHP do not support Visual Studio 2008 but I can use their Visual Studio 2005 SDK (available at the bottom of the page) for Windows Mobile 2003 by doing the following:
1. Installing the Visual Studio 2005 SDK.
2. Opening their SDK sample application ‘DecodeSample’ with Visual Studio 2008.
3. Performing an upgrade of the application to Visual Studio 2008.
This works perfectly and I can deploy the application to the device and I can scan barcodes without problem.
However, the problem I have is that I can’t seem to figure out, from the very simple ‘DecodeSample’ application, how to utilise the scanning features on other forms. So while the scanning feature works in the sample form, I cannot figure out how to enable the scanning feature if I create a new form with a simple text box.
Your job is to simply provide a Visual Basic 2008 project with one new form and one text box, showing me how you have enabled the scanning feature from the sample application. The project can be the sample application itself, with an additional form if you wish but I would prefer to see how you have done it in a new clean project.
This should be very simple and straight forward for any VS2008 developer particularly if you have experience dealing with the Dolphin SDK.
Quick turnaround required.
Must be Visual Studio 2008.
