Force project and order
template now included in Examples folder (generally C:\Program Files\Pocket PC Creations\Examples). The
Sales Force project Data Pathway is set up to output via HTML Template
to HTML files with file name based on customer Company Name, see Sales
Force page for more detail. For convenient printing from Pocket PC
Creations using professional
HTML Templates, exactly matching government and other forms, contact
Enrico for assistance.
Dynamic changes to point Captions
based on output from other points. The Caption can be dynamically
expanded by parsing from another point using <%OtherPointID%>, the
Caption will then present what is entered in the other point. For
example a survey of game machine usage has a question "What brand
of video game do you use?" (Drop List with Point ID Name
"Brand" includes item 'Nintendo'). Elsewhere in the project a
dynamic question may be "How often do you use your Nintendo?"
Caption would be "How often do you use your <%Brand%>?";
if person had answered 'X Box' initially it would read "How often
do you use your X Box?". This can assist with making the interview
more direct in market research, and adaptive in self assessment (eg drug
trials), and by providing prompts in larger projects.
|Expanded support for Tablet PCs,
the Outlook point now operates on Tablet/notebook/desktop PC,
where previously Outlook point only related to Pocket Outlook on Pocket
PC. Pocket PC Creations is proving popular on Windows XP Tablet PCs, running under
Local Session (via Project > New Session) with expanded window (drag
window to widen and lengthen).
Unit IDs can be remotely amended
from the Pocket PC Creations server, useful for large wireless
deployments if the user of the Pocket PC changes, see page
4 of Skills tutorial and 'Update Unit ID'.
Character Limit control in Edit
point to assist output to databases by not exceeding database field
limits; audio warning on Pocket PC when limit
Enhanced Date Time picker point, no longer
default record of current date (please check previous project designs if
dependent on always recording current date).
Support for non-English locales, as
determined by hardware system settings (Settings > System > Regional Settings on
Pocket PC and Control Panel > Regional Settings on desktop
PC). Thus if Regional Settings specify "," as the decimal
character and "." as the digit grouping character (which is
opposite to the English system), then these settings will be reflected
in Pocket PC Creations.
