The Macromedia Flash MX Interface Development Kit for Pocket PC 2002 covers tips, techniques, and sample code for developing user interfaces for the Pocket PC 2002 platform. Because of the small screen size and the various input and connectivity options for Pocket PC 2002 (PPC) devices, designing an effective user interface lets users access your content easily. This document and included examples can help you understand how to create useable interfaces.
Components are pre-built movie clips which simplify handling common tasks or user interface (UI) elements. Because of the small screen size and slower processors for the Pocket PC the following five Flash UI components: CheckBox, ComboBox, ListBox, RadioButton, and ScrollBar have been optimized for Pocket PC 2002. You can use these components separately to add simple user interaction to Flash movies, or together to create a complete user interface for Web forms or applications.
