.NET Mobile Example
The Mobile ASP.NET Page
Mobile Controls are the main building blocks of mobile applications.
Mobile Controls are
similar to Web Controls in ASP.NET.
The following ASP.NET page displays "Hello W3Schools" as a WML card in a WML
enabled cell phone:
<mob:Label runat="server">Hello W3Schools</mob:Label>
The Page directive tells ASP to use (inherit) mobile page handling instead of
regular page handling (like the one used for traditional browsers).
The Register directive defines the prefix that will be used for mobile controls. We have
used "mob", but you can use any prefix you like.
The <mob:Form> element tells the server to create a mobile form control.
The <mob:Label> element tells the server to create a mobile label control with
the text "Hello W3Schools".
When the ASP .NET page executes, it will produce the following output to a WAP enabled
<!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC
'-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.1//EN'
and this output will be produced for a Pocket PC:
<form id="ctrl1" name="ctrl1" method="post"
.NET Mobile will generate WML code for WAP enabled cell
phones and HTML code for devices like the Pocket PC.
By detecting the browser, .NET Mobile will output correct content, providing
developers with a powerful tool to develop single applications that will serve
many different mobile devices.
