Has anybody used PocketC for the Casio E-100?

I was wondering if anybody got access to the action buttons and cursor on the PDA. I've manage to get the cursor to work with the game that I wrote for PocketC using the key() function. But for some reason, I have no access to the action buttons (or portable gaming system like buttons) on my Casio, which is somehow tied up with Windows CE which is used for the shortcut keys for certain applications.

If anybody manage to get access to those buttons, please tell me how, I've checked every forum, site and documentation about using the specific buttons on the E-100 or up. None of them had an article about them.

I've even checked the PocketC Function Library, unfortunatly, I can't find any details on how to grab control over the keys

If you use the direct CE API interface library rather than the standard PocketC library then you can probably read these buttons with the GetAsyncKeyState() function.

I am aware of that, I can't use Embbeded Visual C++ 3.0. For some reason, it doesn't support MIPS.

I created a new project, tried to select MIPS processor, since I have a Casio E-100. But the checkbox and the text is greyed, meaning that I can't use it. Did anybody manage to use Embedded Visual C++ with a Casio E-100?

You don't need to use evc. Download the CE API library for PocketC and just call the functions from PocketC.

If you want to develop for the E-100 using evc then you will need to get hold of the Windows CE Toolkit for Visual C++. The SDK provided with that is compatible with evc. For some reason the downloadable PPC toolkits don't install properly with evc (so I'm told).
