.NET Mobile Input

previous next

Input Controls are used to collect input from the mobile user.

Input Controls

There is a number of mobile controls that support user input.

The most common input control is perhaps the TextBox control, which was demonstrated in the previous chapter. The TextBox control is perfect for simple user input like names, numbers, identifications and keywords.

For larger amount of input a TextView control is a better choice. The TextView control allows long multi-line input like the one you need for SMS or other messages.

Numeric Input

The numeric attribute of the textbox control can be set to true or false to specify whether the textbox should accept only numeric input.

Note: This behavior will normally work on cell phones by changing the input mode from letters to numbers. For HTML browsers however, this behavior is normally not supported.

Password Input

The password attribute of the textbox control can be set to true or false to specify whether the textbox should be treated as a password field.

A password field will hide the input by displaying * (stars) instead of ordinary text.

List Controls

TextBox and TextView controls are well suited for entering input, but sometimes you want the user to select from a list of predefined values.

The SelectionList Control supports drop down lists, check boxes and radio buttons. This topic is covered in another chapter.

The List Control supports selection from menus and lists. The List Control is covered in another chapter.

User Interface Controls

User Interface Controls are controls which display the user interface:

Name Function
Command Performs an action
Form Defines a container for mobile controls
Image Defines an image
Label Defines a text
Link Defines a hyperlink
List Defines a list
MobilePage Defines a container for mobile controls
ObjectList Defines a list of data objects
Panel Defines a container for other controls
SelectionList Defines a list to select from
StyleSheet Defines styles to be applied to other controls
TextBox Defines a single line input box

For a full control reference, including properties methods, events, and more examples, please look at the "Mobile Reference" page.
