Feature Area

Relevant APIs


To run the code sample
  1. Navigate to the solution file (*.sln), and double-click it. By default, the solution files are copied to the following folders:

    C:\Program Files\Windows Mobile 6.5.3 DTK\Samples\Common\CPP\ATL\MiniPIE

    Microsoft Visual Studio launches and loads the solution.

  2. Build the solution (Ctrl+Shift+B).

  3. Deploy the solution (F5).

To use the application
  1. Navigate using the Open item, or by using the Address Bar, if deploying to a device running Windows Mobile Professional or Windows Mobile Classic.

  2. Use the Exitsoftkey to quit.

  3. Use the Back, Forward, Refresh, Home,and Stopmenu items as you would in Internet Explorer Mobile.

Source File Listing

MainWindow.h, MainWindow.cpp

Defines the main application window.

GetURLDialog.h, GetURLDialog.cpp

Defines a dialog box that allows the User to enter a URL. This is not really needed to host the web browser control; however, it is implemented here to allow the User to navigate on Windows Mobile Standard, where the IWebBrowser2::get_AddressBarproperty is not implemented.


Implementation of WinMain.


Resources used by this application.


Header file that defines resource IDs. Used by MiniPIE.rc.


Utility macros used for error-checking, etc.

StdAfx.h, StdAfx.cpp

These files are used to build a Precompiled Header (PCH) file named MiniPIE.pch, and a precompiled type file named StdAfx.obj.


Main project file for VC++ projects generated using Application Wizards.

Development Environments
