  • On the Treo 700w, Windows Mobile taskbar (at top) and StyleTap command bar (at bottom) can be shown/hidden by pressing the left action key. By default, these bars are initially hidden when you run a StyleTap application. StyleTap runs slightly faster if the taskbar and command bar are hidden
  • The right action key causes the current application menu to be shown/hidden
  • If the device has a keyboard, menu shortcut characters are displayed and can be triggered (when the menu is active) by keyboard input
  • With the StyleTap command bar showing, you can use the SIP (keyboard) icon to bring up the virtual keyboard/input area. When the SIP is up, only part of the application is visible; you can scroll the screen using the up/down navigation keys
  • From any StyleTap application, press the OK button to jump back to the StyleTap Launcher. From the StyleTap Launcher, press the OK button to terminate StyleTap
  • Some games need access to the four Palm hard keys. On a Treo 700w with StyleTap, you can use Game Mode to access these keys. To switch to Game Mode, press Alt followed by the left action key. In Game Mode, the keyboard keys Q, W, O and P generate Palm key codes for hard key 1 (usually the Calendar key on a Palm device), hard key 2 (usually the Address Book key), hard key 3 (usually the To Do key) and hard key 4 (usually the Notes key) respectively. Game mode lasts until you press Alt and the left action key again, or switch out of or terminate the current application.

  • left/right/center keys generate vchrRockerLeft/vchrRockerRight/vchrRockerCenter character codes

VERSION 0.9.065 (2005-06-16)


  • You can now set the user name (also called the sync ID) to any string value. Since this setting is used to register many applications, you can run applications that you previously registered on another device by copying the old user name over to the StyleTap device. Many users had asked for this function. To display or change the user name for the device running StyleTap® Platform, choose the menu Options/User Name from the StyleTap Launcher program. The user name can only be changed once every 24 hours


  • Worked around a Windows Mobile memory allocation restriction that caused several applications to fail at startup


  • Fixed a bug in the regional settings that caused StyleTap Platform to crash when it was run on Chinese-language PDAs. StyleTap Platform still only supports English-language operations, but now it can run on Chinese Windows devices and on English Windows devices with CE-Star Chinese language support installed


  • Added support for little-endian bitmaps, which are used in some newer applications


  • When you use the StyleTap Application Installer to install several programs or databases at the same time, you no longer have to confirm acceptance of each object on the handheld.
  • You can drag and drop programs and databases into the list of "Files ready to be installed".


  • We continue to fix problems with specific applications as they are identified. If you submitted a support ticket which was addressed in this release, we will notify you by email.


  • Use FtrGet (sysFtrCreator, sysFtrNumOEMROMVersion, &versionBuildNumber) to obtain the version number of StyleTap Platform that your application is running on. See the Knowledgebase article "Is This App Running on StyleTap® Platform?"
  • Use the StyleTap API function GetDesktopIpAddress() in StyleTapPlatform.h to develop your own socket-based synchronization solution. More documentation will be available shortly, or contact StyleTap Support if you are interested.
  • Your application installation script can copy your .prc and .pdb files to the "ToBeInstalled" subdirectory (e.g. C:\Program Files\StyleTap\ToBeInstalled, if StyleTap was installed in its default location). The next time the StyleTap Application Installer program is run, all databases in this location will be imported into the "Files ready to be installed" list, so they can be installed to the handheld simply by clicking on the "Install to device" button.
