NPAPI – a plugin to retrieve device information

Some times ago I wrote a barcode scanner NPAPI plugin for the HTML5 browser by zetakey. It is based on code supplied as MySensor in the motorola knowledge base. The plugin is for Windows Mobile 6.x based devices by Intermec and another one for M3 devices.

The MySensor plugin based on npruntime was the only sample I could get to compile and work correctly. The barcode scanner fork I wrote does also work very well.

As you see, I changed adsbox/htdocs/index.html to use a local copy of markerwithlabel.js. You may also use the new source code location

With the above change my adsbox did show the planes and airports etc. again.

The source of adsbox is at

Windows Mobile 6 – Internet Explorer Mobile modes

Since IE6 comes as 6.1.4 or higher, Internet Explorer Mobile can work in IE6 or the older PIE mode.

IE6 means Internet Explorer 6 desktop compatible mode. Which works more or less with known and unknown restrictions. The biggest advantage is that Internet Explorer (IEM) >=6.1.4 supports keyboard event DOM of javascript.

For some web sites you may downgrade to PIE (Pocket Internet Explorer) mode. You will get scroll bars and a standard menu bar and no on-screen zoom option.
