Figure 7.2
I/O Simulator
Terminology of Emulator and Simulator;
The Emulator described in this reference manual is a software application that behaves in a very
similar way to the actual device by imitating individual hardware components or protocols present in
the actual hardware.
On the other hand, the Simulator is also a software application that logically integrates application
programming interfaces (“API”) and certain other functions to allow debugging of the application
program using external events. The Emulator performs in a pseudo CPU and hardware
environment and it is impossible for the application to recognize whether it is in the actual device
environment or pseudo environment. However, actions carried out by the Simulator are not as
alike to those performed by actual components but merely mimic them very closely.
39
7.3 Using the Device Emulator
7.3.1 IT-800WM Device Emulator
The IT-800WM Device Emulator emulates various operations carried out by the actual IT-800 on
the PC’s screen such as mouse operation, input on PC’s keyboard, displaying execution of
applications, and operations by actual devices such as the scanner. Figure 7.3 shows an emulated
IT-800 on the screen of a PC.
Figure 7.3
Key Input
The emulator offers key input capability similar to that of the actual IT-800. For instance, a key on
the emulated keyboard of IT-800 on the screen (see Figure 7.3) can be clicked with PC mouse as
well as key input made directly on the PC’s keyboard.
Reading Bar Codes
The emulator enables bar codes pre-registered in the I/O Simulator (see Figure 7.2) to be input when
clicking Trigger key on the emulated keyboard (see Figure 7.3). Note however that the Trigger key
must be continuously pressed for a second or more otherwise an incorrect key input may result.
Sound
The emulator offers beep and sound capability similar to that of the actual IT-800.

8. Visual Studio
This chapter describes application development steps in Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Studio 2005 to
create an example program. The example program referred to in this chapter is an application
program developed in three development environments - C++, Visual Basic and C# - using the
CASIO Common Device Control Library or Common Device Control Class Library. The example
program for all three environments repeats turning on and off the LED to brink for a period of 5
seconds. See Chapters 8.1 “Developing in C++”, 8.2 “Developing in VB” and 8.3 “Developing in
C#” for each development environment.
For the list of the libraries provided by the IT-800WM BDK, refer to Chapter 1.2 “Library”. For
detail about each function of the Common Device Control Library and Common Device Control
Class Library, refer to Common Device Control Library Manual.
The example program in this chapter runs also in the Device Emulator. To use the emulator, rename
IT-800 Device to IT-800 Emulator.
Notes:
• Functions of the Common Device Control Library which control various individual devices
integrated in the IT-800 have different name spaces and names from those available for the
previous CASIO handheld terminals. They are not compatible with the ones in the previous
CASIO library. The exceptions are DT-X7, DT-X11, and IT-600 that use the same libraries.
• Applications developed with any functions of CASIO dedicated library must be rewritten by
replacing the dedicated functions with the appropriate functions from the Common Device
Control Library.
• Take care when using Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Studio 2005 to upgrade an existing
application and always keep a backup of your existing project.
