Take a look at the help file that comes with the EMDK. Up the top there's an EMDK for .NET introduction section. I will post a snippet below. You might also look at the "Symbol Design Time Components" section. There a few design time components (like Barcode) you can just drag onto your form from the toolbox like other form components (textbox, etc). These are easier to implement, but are limited in functionality. Might do everything you need though.
Developing Applications that use the Enterprise Mobility Developer Kit
Once this package has been installed, creating .NET Compact Framework Applications that target Enterprise Mobility Developer Kit is fairly simple. Follow the steps below to create a new Symbol enabled .NET application.
- Create a new "Smart Device Application" project that use either the Microsoft(R) Visual Basic.NET or Microsoft(R) Visual C# languages.
- From the "Project" pull-down menu select "Add Reference...".
- From the list of .NET assemblies, select the "Symbol" assembly as well as the particular EMDK assembly that matches the functionality you would like to develop with (Example: For barcode scanning applications select "Symbol" and "Symbol.Barcode").
- Begin programming your application. Refer to the Enterprise Mobility Developer Kit API documentation for information on the methods and properties of each class.
Thank you for your comments. I am still stumped.
I created a Smart device App in VB for a Windows
I added the reference to Symbol.
I added the reference to Symbol.Barcode2.DesignC35.dll
According to the help file, I should see a Motorola section in the Toolbox to drag and drop tools onto the form.
I do not have a Motorola section in the toolbox.
I have the Motorola section up at the top of the toolbox. I didn't do anything special to put it there. I know sometimes there are issues if you update some Visual Studio components after you have already installed the EMDK. Take look down near the bottom of the readme file that comes in the EMDK at the Installation section and make sure you have all of the required components. Then you might need to uninstall and reinstall the EMDK.
Thank you very much. I uninstalled and re-installed the EMDK and the Motorola section now appears in my toolbox.
Thank you and have a great day.
