    I've been asked the feasability of taking one of our existing programs and make it run on Windows CE. I understand that there is a Toolkit add on for VB6 for this. Does any one have any experience with this as far as ease of use, compatibility, control etc. Is it similar to the differences between normal VB and VBA? Appreciate any help. Thanks

    I use Windows CE Toolkit for Visual Basic 6.0 for a couple of maonths now. There are some basic differences bettween them but it is all due to the Win CE OS. For instance one thing very stupid is that you cannot create an array of lbels or textboxes and so on. The are several other differences you can ask these question to a forum for CE programmers in www.vbce.com . It is not as polite as this one but still a good forum.

    Thanks. It sounds similar to VBA, you can't use object arrays there either. Thanks for the response, I didn't want to decide until I had talked to someone who has acutally used it.

    One more thing.

    There is a "small" problem with VBCE you don't have "DoEvents". Catch it ?!
