How to make mobile version of company website?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi, I'm about to begin creating a mobile version of our company's website, and I have some questions.  I've spent many hours reading and researching online, but I can't find some of the answer I need. 1.  How can I test a mobile website locally?  Are there emulators I can download?  Can I plug a phone into my PC and test from the device?  I'd like to see how the website looks on the device locally so I can make changes accordingly. 2.  With the different screens and resolutions on mobile devices, what is the best width to use for the page layout?  Is there a set width of pixels that is a standard to follow, or should it be set at 100%? 3.  What is the best way to handle mobile browser detection?  So far I've found that I should add code to the Page_Load event of the Master page of our website that checks Request.Browser.IsMobileDevice and redirects to the mobile site if this returns true.  Is this the best way? These are my biggest issues with getting started.  Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Starting with Company Website

I have a startup company that I plan on builind and publishing my website for. Nothing major with the first revision - just some information on the company - contact forms and quote request type things, and a blog page to highlight new products etc. I come mostly from using PHP for websites - however since I do a lot of .NET development profesionally I wanted to go the ASP route for my company site. Using Visual Studio 2010 I see I have the option of making an ASP.NET website - or I can go with a project and create an MVC2 application. Would there be any reason to use one over the other for what I wish to acomplish? Will both handle simple things such as in PHP hwere I can create a page and include it dynamically such as using the statement <?php include('header.inc.php') ?> My intention is not to get into a MVC vs WebForms debate - rather I'm trying to make a decision that will allow me to not have to scrap my code when at some point I decide to put in an application such as a portal for photo and video sharing.   Thanks 

How do I make changes in a website that has been partly pre-compiled

 I have been asked to make some changes to a website developed by someone else and it has a lot of unfamiliar stuff going on. In the first place, the website has some strange file types: csproj, csproj.user and .designer.cs. Second, there is a folder under the root folder called Datalayer. I have been making changes to code in files in this folder, but my changes are not being implemented when I build and run the website. Instead, it seems to be using some pre-compiled version of these. Many of the aspx.cs pages have a line at the top: using OceanLED.DataLayer; There is also a /bin folder under the root folder, which contains a .dll file and a .pdb file for the website. There is also a /obj/debug folder, also containing a .dll file and a .pdb file for the site. Finally, when I try to build, I get loads of these cryptic warning messages: Warning 1 The type 'OceanLED.DataLayer.WarrantyClaim' in 'C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\OceanLED\DataLayer\WarrantyClaim.cs' conflicts with the imported type 'OceanLED.DataLayer.WarrantyClaim' in 'C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\OceanLED\Bin\OceanLED.dll'. Using the type defined in 'C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\OceanLED\DataLayer\WarrantyClaim.cs'. C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\OceanLED\DataLayer\WarrantyClaim.cs 287 17 C:\...\OceanLED\ How do I get it to use MY code.

How to create Asynchronous website-make the site work faster?

Hi,I developed an ASP.NET 3.5 website to read a few XML files generated by a third party software and convert them to a single Excel Book. The entire process takes more than 1 HOUR and even before completing the entire work, the system comes back with a message like - "Page cannot be displayed" and it fails. So, I am planning to make this website an Asynchronous site (I think if I make this site asynchronous it will work faster and will not stop execution before completing - new ideas are welcome.) I am new to this concept. Can anyone help me with some examples of how to convert a normal website to Asynchronous website? At present my site has 3 tiers and the reading of XML pages and writing them into Excel are happening in the Data Access Layer.Thanks

Creating a mobile version of a MOSS 2007 site?

Hi, We've created a MOSS 2007 WCM public site for one of our clients.  Now, they want a mobile version of the site where they can custom what shows up on mobile devices; the content will be different (no images, Flash; some text may be changed; some web parts may not show, etc.)  What's the best approach?  I know about using "/m" to redirect to mbllists.aspx and I've read about how it uses rendering templates, but I can't find anything about controlling what content actually gets displayed.  Oh, and we have both English and Spanish versions of our site (.../en-US/pages/... and .../es-MX/pages/...) Thanks for any suggestions.  - Ed.

Two websites that are being developed by me is online in my office network.

Our IT department has updated Internet Explorer and the view my websites is completely disturbed.

Now we have Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702

When there is one record populates to gridview the whole gridview would not be seen but the count label shows one record.


Please please help as I am receiving hundreds of calls from users.

Clean exit from mobile website?


I've just completed my first iPhone-compatible & Droid-compatible mobile app.  At one time, I was confounded by differences in back button behaviour between the two platforms, but I came up with a suitable workaround.

One thing remains that I'd like to correct if it's at all possible.  The application is very session-variable dependent, so naturally, its very dependent on sessions.  Users invariably use leave pages open when they turn off their smartphones, and this means that they return to a non-repsonsive timed-out page when they turn it back on.  Can anything be done to preclude this?  As in active web app or no web app?
