ArcGIS Mobile SDK and Visual Studio Support Explained!

We have received several questions regarding support for versions of Visual Studio when developing applications and extensions using the ArcGIS Mobile SDK and we would like to address the 2 most common questions in this article.

Can I use Visual Studio 2010 to develop Windows Mobile/Windows Embedded Handheld Applications?

Unfortunately No. Microsoft only supports Windows Phone OS 7.0 and higher with Visual Studio 2010. See the following article from MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/sa69he4t.aspx).

What version of the Compact Framework should I use (2.0 or 3.5)?

ArcGIS Mobile is compiled using .Net CF 2.0. Most Windows Mobile devices in the market today are running Windows Mobile 6.1 or 6.5. These devices include .Net CF 2.0. If you build applications that depend upon CF 3.5 then you will need to deploy 3.5 as a part of your install. So unless there is a feature of 3.5 that you must use, we recommend using version 2.0.

Can I use Visual Studio 2008 with Compact Framework 3.5? 

Officially, the answer is YES. However there is some manual work required for you to get the ArcGIS Mobile libraries integrated into Visual Studio…

The problem you will face is that the ArcGIS Mobile components will not appear inside of the Toolbox. The reason for this is that Microsoft does not load .Net CF 2.0 libraries into a CF 3.5 toolbox (even though 2.0 libraries are fully compatible with a 3.5 framework).

You can work around this issue in the following way:

1) Create a CF 2.0 project and design the form using the 2.0 toolbox elements.

 

2) Upgrade your project to a CF 3.5 project. Note that you will still get the same elements in your form but you will no longer have ArcGIS Mobile toolbox items.

 

Alternately, you can directly create your forms in 3.5 by writing the code behind and not using the Toolbox. This is what we do with the ArcGIS Mobile application in fact.

1) Open the Form.Designer.cs file

partial class Form1

  {

    /// <summary>

    /// Required designer variable.

    /// </summary>

    private
System.ComponentModel.IContainer components
= null;

    private
System.Windows.Forms.MainMenu mainMenu1;

    /// <summary>
    /// Clean up any resources being used.
    /// </summary>
    /// <param
name=”disposing”>
true if managed
resources should be disposed; otherwise, false.
</param>

    protected
override void
Dispose(bool disposing)

    {

      if (disposing && (components != null))

      {

       
components.Dispose();

      }

      base.Dispose(disposing);

    }

 

    #region Windows Form Designer
generated code

 

    /// <summary>

    /// Required method for Designer support – do not modify

    /// the contents of this method with the code editor.

    /// </summary>

    private
void InitializeComponent()

    {

      this.mainMenu1 = new
System.Windows.Forms.MainMenu();

      this.Menu = this.mainMenu1;

      this.components = new
System.ComponentModel.Container();

      this.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.Dpi;

      this.Text = “Form1″;

      this.AutoScroll = true;

    }

 

    #endregion

 
}

2) Add references to your CF 3.5 project by browsing for our CF 2.0 library 

 

3) Add the necessary new members.

private ESRI.ArcGIS.Mobile.WinForms.Map map1;

    private ESRI.ArcGIS.Mobile.FeatureCaching.MobileCache
mobileCache1;

    {

      this.mainMenu1 = new
System.Windows.Forms.MainMenu();

      this.Menu = this.mainMenu1;

      this.components = new
System.ComponentModel.Container();

      this.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.Dpi;

      this.Text = “Form1″;

      this.AutoScroll = true;

 

      this.SuspendLayout();

 

     
// Map

     
this.map1 = new
ESRI.ArcGIS.Mobile.WinForms.Map();

     
this.map1.Location = new
System.Drawing.Point(23, 29);

     
this.map1.Name = “map1″;

     
this.map1.Size = new
System.Drawing.Size(200, 200);

     
this.map1.TabIndex = 0;

     
this.map1.Text = “map1″;

     
this.Controls.Add(this.map1);

 

     
// Cache

     
this.mobileCache1 = new
ESRI.ArcGIS.Mobile.FeatureCaching.MobileCache(this.components);

 

     
this.ResumeLayout(false);

    }

 

5) You should get the following result.

 

Given that the time you will spend designing the form is negligible, we recommend the later approach for your 3.5 development.

  • New look and feel – a sleek new look and feel integrates with the SharePoint 2010 ribbon and maximizes the screen area available for your map.
  • Extensibility – The Map Web Part is extensible. Developers can create Silverlight extensions to interact with the map and layers, display Silverlight content inside the web part, and communicate with web services and other external components.
  • Geoprocessing – ArcGIS Server Geoprocessing services can now be easily added as tools to the Map Web Part, enabling advanced spatial analysis.
  • Theming – Designers can specify the colors of the pop-ups, dialogs, and panels that are shown within the Map Web Part. They can use the site theme colors or define a custom scheme.
  • ArcGIS.com integration – a new Map Center is integrated into the Map Web Part and allows you to discover, open, and save maps from ArcGIS.com.

You can read more about all the new features and enhancements at 2.0 in the What’s New help topic.

Since version 2.0 of ArcGIS Mapping for SharePoint includes the ability to write extensions to the ArcGIS Map Web Part, we are also pleased to announce the unveiling of the ArcGIS Mapping for SharePoint Interactive SDK and Code Gallery.  Use the interactive SDK to explore what the new extensibility endpoints enable you to develop, immediately see the code required, and download the samples.  Visit the Code Gallery to view and download extensions developed by other users of ArcGIS Mapping for SharePoint.

Version 2.0 released, 2.1 is coming soon!

Version 2.0 of the ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight/WPF was released on July 9, shortly before the Esri International User Conference. The new features and functionality in 2.0 that leverage ArcGIS Server 10 have been well received and discussions at the User Conference highlighted many of these benefits.  A few questions were raised regarding the migration of Silverlight and WPF applications from version 1.x to 2.0. From the tooling perspective, 2.0 requires an upgrade to Microsoft SDKs and platforms that support Silverlight 4 and .NET 4.0, thus Visual Studio 2010 and Expression Blend 4 are necessary.  Links to these requirements are provided in the Installation and System Requirements documents on the ArcGIS resource center.  Some minor changes to the API (listed as breaking changes in What’s New document) may require you to update your application code.  However, in a vast majority of cases you can simply migrate your application using Visual Studio 2010, target Silverlight 4 or .NET 4, and reference version 2.0 of ArcGIS API Silverlight or WPF assemblies.

Now on to what is coming with version 2.1.  First, in mid-August we will host a public beta of ArcGIS for Windows Phone. The product will include an API and an application.  Since the development platform for Windows Phone applications is based on Silverlight, the ArcGIS API will match core (ESRI.ArcGIS.Client.dll) and Bing (ESRI.ArcGIS.Client.Bing.dll) library support present in the Silverlight/WPF API.  The ArcGIS application for Windows Phone will be available for download from Windows Marketplace in the near future.  The ArcGIS for Windows Phone resource center will provide the information you will need to get started.  

For the Silverlight/WPF API as a whole, we are targeting the following enhancements in version 2.1:

  • Support for disconnected scenarios where the API will generate, manage, and use a local cache of image tiles and features.
  • Integrate touch and gestures functionality for a consistent interactive surface experience across multiple devices.
  • Support for legend metadata provided by ArcGIS 10 sp1 map services.  A legend or TOC control may be added to the toolkit.
  • Use ArcGIS.com web map documents to configure a Silverlight Map or application.

Version 2.1 of the Silverlight/WPF API and ArcGIS for Windows Phone will be released in mid-November 2010.

Update:  Beta versions of ArcGIS Silverlight/WPF and Windows Phone APIs were released October 5, 2010.
ArcGIS API for Silverlight/WPF 2.1 Beta is available here: http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapi/silverlight/2.1/ 
ArcGIS API for Windows Phone 2.1 Beta 2 is available here: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgismobile/10.0/apis/windowsphone/
