Before connecting the PC and the phone, insert 2 or 3 records on your phone. First use the “BlueConnect” function on the phone, then place the Win32 […]
It is more efficient to run loops so that the compare value is zero (i.e. start with the loop count and test against 0) than to start at zero and test against the final value. The reason that it is more efficient is because “compare to zero” can be contained in a single byte code. […]
The AppForge MobileVB tool includes an Alarm Ingot on all supported device platforms. This tip shows you how to use the Alarm Ingot in an application. The AFAlarm Ingot fires events at specified times. If your application is not currently running when the alarm goes off, it will also launch your application at that time.
Be careful when allocating and de-allocating memory so that you are not creating unnecessary memory fragmentation by leaving many small memory holes that are not usable. These small holes are free memory and will be counted as such, i.e. calling the function Runtime.getRuntime().freeMemory() will return the amount of all free memory including the holes. However, […]
