IDEA: PDA profile manager
« on: May 02, 2005, 06:07:27 AM »
I think it would be great to have a profile manager on my PocketPC/Smartphone. With one click on the tray icon, I'll get a popup menu with some profile names I customized myself. Clicking on one profile will activate that profile, and activates all kinds of settings (I customized myself) in 1 go.

Example:
- I walk into my office and select my 'Business' profile, this will
* set the ringtone to a normal beep sound
* changes the background to WindowsXP's Bliss
* change to my appointments
- I walk into a business meeting, activating my 'Business quiet' will
* set all sounds OFF
- I walk away from work, activating my 'Free!!!' profile will
* set my ringtone to a nice music tune
* set my background to a nice picture of Jennifer Lopez

The types of settings to be effected can be lots, ofcourse.

this sounds like a very good idea.
i'm not too familiar with pocketpc programmer so i don't know if such a thing exists; certainly on the pc there are macro tools that would let you set up such things.

maybe there is a pocketpc programmer here who might take a look at this.

Currently I'm learning .NET (C# + ASP.NET), so going for this myself isn't a bad idea. I just need some directions to get started for the Windows Mobile 2003 registry. If I understood correctly, modifying PDA settings is just a matter of knowing the right reg keys...
