Hello, Ron.

I think what you are after is out there and ready for you to use. It is
called PocketPyGUI (or ppygui) and is a newer implementation than previous
attempts at porting tkinter to Windows Mobile / WinCE (maybe that wasn't
worded quite right - it's a package that allows easy Python access to the
system's standard controls). If you are after a simple way to implement the
standard system buttons, check boxes and other controls using Python code
then PocketPyGUI is perfect. Get it from sourceforge (ppygui.sourceforge.net).
I have used it with WM5, but hopefully it also works smoothly with WM2003.

Hope you get your app working, and come back to the list if you have any
