Visor/Palm graphics

Visor/Palm graphics

Visor/Palm graphics

I am learning to program for the Palm.  I made a simple graphic drawing program with the intentions of using this program as a signiture capture module.  Unfortunately, It seems that the Visor Deluxe (and my program)cant keep up eith the pen. This results in a poorly legible signiture due to the dotted appearance caused by the speed issue.   Any advice or code that may help me obtain a solid line signiture?
Thanks, Doug

RE: Visor/Palm graphics

What software are you using to develop your palm application?

RE: Visor/Palm graphics

Thanks for your inquiry... I am using PocketC.  Does that make a difference.  It is a really nice piece of software to start programming with because of the Price and less complex language.  I didn't even consider that this could be the (or part of )the problem.
What would you suggest.

RE: Visor/Palm graphics

I am not entirely familiar with the wide range of languages, but typically the "Easier" languages to use have a major drawback when speed comes into play. For example, if you done any DOS/PC programming, and you used the basic tools in QBasic, the graphics are such a crawl, compared to something that could be written in borland turbo C++ 3.0. I might recomend one of the more expensive commercial products, like codewarrior for palm, or mobilebuilder. I am still researching which palm development language to get myself, I'm leaning towards AppForge because it allows you to use Visual Basic to create your palm application (less of a learning curve required if you are already a visual basic developer, but speed still seems to be an issue here as well)

could you perhaps provide a URL to the IDE/Compiler you are using, so I can get a better idea of the problem, my current handheld is a Handera 330 , which is the new one they came out with since TRG Pro(Which I also recently owned and loved)

RE: Visor/Palm graphics

I strongly recommend Codewarrior, I know it is more expensive and harder to learn (unless you know the basics of C, where you just have to learn the Palm specific funtions), because all the documentation and shared source code uses it, every book I found about Palm Programming asumes you are using Codewarrior. I been using it since R5 and I absolutely love it.
It used to be a problem for Visor developers but, now they added the USB debugging capability, so we are happy.
Using Codewarrior you can even attend to the www.codewarrioru.com Palm Programming classes.

Sorry if I got to entusiastic.
