Tips in Windows Mobile Development

*** It is a scale down version, So you wont get all features as .NET framework
*** You should install .NET Compact framework(3.5) + SQL compact version.

*** Try to use ShowDialog() other than Show()
*** Use Singleton pattern to avoid load many occurances of single form
*** Its easy to user picture/image buttons than menu click
*** Its good to use cursor until data is loading to the form

*** SQL Compact framework doesn't support statements like "IF EXITS"

*** If you want to connect to a Mobile(Compact) DB in ASP.NET add following method
AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetData("SQLServerCompactEditionUnderWebHosting", true);
this allow you to connect to a DB that has .SDF extension :)
