This tutorial guides you through the process of building an UltraLite application for MobileVB using the UltraLite table API. At the end of the tutorial you will have an application and small database on your Windows CE device that synchronizes with a central database. The target platform for the application is Windows CE or Palm OS.
For more information about the table API, see the UltraLite for AppForge API Reference.
The tutorial takes about 30 minutes if you copy and paste the code. If you enter the code yourself, it takes significantly longer.
If you copy the code literally from this help file, be aware that some characters may not be copied correctly. The ampersand, less-than, and greater-than symbols may be copied as html markup codes and have to be manually repaired in the Visual Basic code edit window.
This tutorial assumes:
you have MobileVB and Microsoft Visual Basic 6 installed on your computer
you can write, test, and troubleshoot a MobileVB application
you know how to create an UltraLite database using the UltraLite plug-in for Sybase Central or using the ulcreate utility
you have the Crossfire Client installed on the target device.
Information about the Crossfire Client is available from the AppForge Web site.
You can perform most of this tutorial without SQL Anywhere. The synchronization sections of the tutorial require SQL Anywhere.
The goals for the tutorial are to gain competence and familiarity with the process of developing an UltraLite application.
