App with Custom Drawn Controls
« on: September 05, 2012, 11:44:55 am »
Hi, is it possible to write an App with UI designed with Custom Drawn Controls and compile it both for WinCE and Android ? If yes what would the limitations be ?

Thank you in advance,

Stefanos

AFAIK yes. The limitation would be the number of supported controls. As described here, not all controls have been implemented.

In Windows CE you can use LCL-WinCE widgetset. In Android indeed you need to use LCL-CustomDrawn and then you are limited to the controls already implemented. Bug reports are welcome.

Besides that, you can also use the Custom Drawn Controls directly, in your LCL app and then link it to either LCL-WinCE or LCL-CustomDrawn. This will make your app skinnable.
