Chapter 2. CREATING CONTENT FOR THE POCK... > CONTENT CREATION GUIDELINES

CONTENT CREATION GUIDELINES

So now that you know what the Flash Player for Pocket PC is, what it can and cannot do, and what devices it can run on, it’s almost time to dig in and start creating some great content. But first, let’s review some of the guidelines for creating content. After that, we’ll put it all together and create an application.

Movie Size

When starting Flash, it’s usually a good idea to set the movie size right away. To set the size of the movie, choose Modify, Modify Document (see Figure 2.2). In most cases you’ll need to set the dimensions to 240×240 (this allows the address bar in Pocket IE to be activated, but the scroll bars will not be visible). Or set the dimensions to 240×263, which assumes that the address bar will not be visible. After a few years of deploying content to Pocket PCs, we’ve found that most users have the address bar down by default and 240×240 is the safest bet. Later on we’ll show you how to use a template to make this easier.
