Can a PocketC application open other appliations

Discuss PocketC for CE (including Desktop Edition)

Is it possible to get a PocketC application to open up another appliation of the Palm-sizes PC such as the Note Taker, or an MP3 player. Also is it possible to get a PocketC application to jump straight to the "File, Send To, Infrared Recipient" in the Note Taker.

Yes you can open another application, use the exec() function.

Getting the application to then do something is more difficult. You can do it if you have access to the complete Windows CE API, I don't think you can do it directly from PocketC. It's possible that you could do it with the keyevent() function, but I don't know at what level that operates. It depends on whether it's internal to the PocketC application.

To send file throw the IR port, you don't need to use notetaker.

do like this:
exec("open","\\windows\\irsquirt.exe",full path to the file);
