Full Screen Engine to make Compact Framework applications fullscreen

Here is my approach to make a compact framework form fullscreen:

  • disables OS to capture Function keys like F6/F7 for Volume Up/Down etc and makes these keys available to be used in your app. Also the use of the WinKey does not open the Start Menu

GAPI (GXOpenInput and GXCloseInput) will be removed for Windows Mobile 6.5

Hello

I just started this blog. I will import the existing stuff from hjgode.de/dev from time to time. But now, here is my first post.

Microsoft decided to discontinue GAPI. That is OK for me, as I only use GXOpenInput and GXCloseInput to disable the hijacking of function keys and to have a kiosk application that dies the user not reach the OS.
