Scroll Launcher is a Diamond styled Launcher for WM Devices.

Scroll Launcher looks inside the windows start menu folder for all files, and then adds them to a modified KListControl from here

Requirements:
.NET CF 2.0
WM2003 and above Pocket PC device. (I haven't worked out where the Smartphone version stores its startmenu. As soon as I do, I'll release a new version).
QVGA or VGA device
2MB of RAM (may use more on VGA)

Screen shots:

Usage:
Install the cab to your device. Execute the link called "Scroll Launcher" in Programs, and then scroll till you find the program you want!

Notes:
No icons are added yet.
A settings program is included!
EOA (ExitOnAction) sets whether the application should close when you hit a link.
The "Path" option allows changing of the path. If you have a non WWE ROM, please set this prior to use!


You must restart Scroll Launcher to apply changes.


Thanks to dosfan and gingercat for the original KListControl.
Thanks to kidnamedAlbert for the icon!

The sourcecode for my modified KListControl is also attached for those who are interested.

well at least a black background color. white is too bright and makes my head hurt.

still i will use it
Have a present! I've just swapped around the black and white... Now the background is black, and the text is white!

I'm gonna release a version with the ability to configure that tomorrow!

looks interesting! when i installed it and run the launcher, it does not find any of my programs. the only one that shows up is the launcher in the list.

i installed on my device and i tried it on my storage card same effect. only the launcher shows up in the program list. do i need to install anything else? i only installed the black launcher attached in post number 5.

In black is very, very, very nice.

Just jumpse to me that it is missing 2 thing.... the icons, and not to hide the top bar.

Keep up the good work, for you and dosfan.

Does your ROM have any localisation? It may not work with differently named start menus. Also, are the files in "\\Windows\\Start Menu\\Programs" *.lnk files?

I'm adding some customization to it (via the registry!) so I can add that as an option.

The icons are coming, I just need to work out how best to implement it.

New version with some customisation out now! :D

l3v5y, I just tried your launcher (actually referred from the finger friendly thread) and I like it a lot, it can easily compensate what pointui is missing, which is only 7 items allowed.

I don't know if you could add these:

1) Groups of the shortcuts. I have way too many shortcuts currently grouped into folders right now (for pointui access). However if your launcher supports layers, such as if I double tap office then I would be able to select word mobile, excel mobile etc that would make it a little cleaner look.

2) Index scroll, a vertical scroll bar on either the left side or right side when scrolling the corresponding first letter comes up, like what pcm contacts, icontact and random access has. It maybe too pointui-ly but certainly increases the usability of your launcher.

Just my 2 cents. Keep up the good work!

Good ideas, but they may take some time...

Currently the items are sorted by creation date, so I need to change that before 2 will work.

Groups may also take some time as I'll have to redo the click handling...
