We have developed a simple GUI, with some real-time signal visualization, buttons, forms, etc. using Windows CE 7 VS C# and .NET, and running on a Colibri T20.
It is functionally perfect but it’s been decided to migrate to a 15inch touchscreen as the main interface, replacing a 6inch TFT to improve market acceptance.
Clearly we now need a more engaging GUI, making use of attractive features such as drag&drop with one finger, two-finger zoom, etc etc
We are studying the fastest way to implement this improvement.
Solutions we are considering:
- New GUI implemented with Angular. Can it run on T20, IMX7 or another one of your boards?
- GUI implemente with html/css/jscript. Run a webbrowser engine within C# is this possible? easy?
- Just add nicer bitmaps to the GUI we already have and try to find C# widgets that implement some of the nice features we would like to have. But will these widgets run on the limited .NET version available on WCE? what if we switch to linux? will it be faster to develop?
- Your take.
