Overview
The WINDEV windows not having the same format in WINDEV Mobile, WINDEV Mobile gives you the ability to import a WINDEV window into a WINDEV Mobile project.
Reminder: The analyses, queries, sets of procedures, reports, classes have the same format in WINDEV and in WINDEV Mobile. These elements can be shared between a standard WINDEV project and a WINDEV Mobile project. See Sharing WINDEV elements for more details.
How to proceed?
To import a WINDEV window into a WINDEV Mobile project:
  1. Select "File .. Import .. WINDEV elements".On the "Project" pane, in the "Project" group, expand "Import" and select "WINDEV elements".
  2. Select the window file (WDW extension) to import.
  3. The selected window is automatically opened in WINDEV Mobile. To include this window in the current project, all you have to do is save it. The window is saved in WPW format.
Note: The size of the imported window corresponds to its initial size. You will have to check the interface and the dimensions of the window in order to adapt them to the platform used (Pocket PC, Smartphone, ...).
Notes

Operations performed during the import

  • The controls that do not exist in WINDEV Mobile are automatically deleted (toolbar, ...)
  • The list of errors that occurred (functions that do not exist in WINDEV Mobile for example) is displayed in the "Compilation errors" pane.

Dependency of the files

The windows are imported with their dependencies: all the files linked to the imported window are also imported. The images are automatically converted into a format supported by WINDEV Mobile. For example, the background image of a window is automatically imported and converted into GIF format.

Differences when running the processes of a window

The differences between the Windows operating systems and the systems for mobile devices result in a different management of the processes associated with the windows. The order in which the processes associated with the window are run differs in WINDEV and in WINDEV Mobile.
When importing a WINDEV window, if your code is based on the order in which the processes associated with the window are run, check whether the behavior of the application (in test mode, simulator or at run time) corresponds to the expected behavior.

Copying controls between a standard WINDEV window and a WINDEV Mobile window

The window controls can be copied between a WINDEV project and a WINDEV Mobile project.
