Software includes set focus, lose focus, and value change events; custom menu bars; and Wizard to create distribution disks. Image control can display HTML, macros can call other macros, and files can be moved via mEnable wireless connection.


SYWARE, Inc., announced a new software version, called "Visual CE 9", that empowers mobile users around the world to rapidly create feature-rich database applications-without programming-that can be deployed on any Windows Mobile Pocket PC or Windows CE device - wherever they need to work. Today, tens of thousands of loyal customers in the global Microsoft CE development market rely on SYWARE Visual CE solutions. As a result, developers, and non-technical users, in a wide variety of markets can use Visual CE 9 to mobilize information between the enterprise and the field to rapidly convert PC or paper-based processes into fully mobile applications 10x faster than other market alternatives. Business or user-specific data can be downloaded, collected, displayed, modified and automatically synchronized.

"Competitive solutions that claim to "rapidly mobilize applications" are typically costly, require the user to have a programming background, are not easy-to-use, take too much time to develop, or they force companies to expand IT departments to manage software and data between desktops and servers to devices," said Sy Danberg, President, SYWARE, Inc. "The Visual CE product line solves these problems, while meeting the specialized needs of the mobile user to provide seamless access to essential information on or offline, at any time or place," Danberg added.
