FAQ: Why are the ArcPad function tabs in a different location than the desktop?

Question

Why are the ArcPad function tabs in a different location than the desktop?

Answer

The operating system on the device running ArcPad determines the location of the function tabs. For example;

- On a Trimble GeoXT (Pocket PC 4.2) - the tabs are along the bottom margin.
- Dell Axim (Windows Mobile 2003 v 4.21) - the tabs are along the bottom margin.
- Thales Mobile Mapper (Windows CE.NET) - the tabs along the top margin.

ArcPad Application Builder cannot be customized to reposition the tabs.
