For Developers: Code Solution for Invisible tool bar
icons in SE and ImageList initialization error in
Many of my fellow developers have been
looking for a solution for the first and lately for the
second issue. Both issues in some way are relative and
are clearly a bug in Microsoft Compact Framework. Doing
some research in the web looking for different ways to
initialize an ImageList object during the form load time
I found a way that fix the SE icons invisibility issue
and the initialization error present in hx4700 when the
BitMap Cache parameter of the ATI driver is enabled. So
basically, there is not need to disable the bitmap cache
to avoid the error in hx4700s if you use this method to
initialize the ImageList component.
To easily understand the process I have prepared a C#
and VB .NET projects that can be downloaded
My advice to new Owner
something that I believe that all new owners should read
before they start to install programs in any Pocket PC.
Programs fail to work in hx4700
applications with toolbars could fail to run in hx4700.
You can test this issue by uncompressing
this file and running
the EXE in your hx4700. If you get an error message
after running this test you should uncompress, copy and
run in your hx4700 this
that will fix this issue present in
all new hx4700s.
Review - A ton of good pictures and information.
this Pocket PC is a real gem. The 4" VGA screen
makes me never want to look at a different Pocket PC
screen again. VGA is definitely the future of these
devices, make no mistake about it." - Derek Snyder
Control Software (no hardware needed at all but
the IR port is located at the bottom of your hx4700 so
you may need a program like RotateSE180)
None of the OC tools tested by me so far are completely
stable in the hx4700. Some times they work for many days
without any problem and they suddenly they lock the
device in a way that a hard reset is needed to get
control of it again. This is my personal experience and
could differ from the experiences of others. Please
create a daily backup before you use any OC.

PC Magazine reviews the hx4700.
"HP's new iPAQ hx4700 is a clear case of software not living up to the hardware: With a VGA screen and 624-Mhz processor, the hx4700 is a sleek, gorgeous, and powerful handheld computer that's waiting for the right software to make it really shine."
