If you've built Web sites using ASP.NET, you'll welcome the Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit (MMIT). MMIT extends the Visual Studio .NET IDE you already know by providing new controls for handheld devices letting you easily develop applications for wireless devices. This means you can write less code while adapting it to more devices. Not only does MMIT integrate with Visual Studio .NET, it extends ASP.NET as well. This article gives you the background you need to write, test, and deploy a site with MMIT and make all your code able to target specific devices for a custom fit.

I'm new to developing mobile apps and have hit a brick wall. I use Web Services all the time so I know I have created it correctly and it works. The issue is that i cant seem to add it to my class or form in the Smart Device Project.
When I right click I get the option to add Web Reference, I then navigate to the url and add as I normally would. When I then try to access the service I cant seem to navigat to it from code and it is not available. I have also tried adding a Web Service directly by 'Add New Item, but this file type is not available in the list of installed templates.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
I am planning to implement a runtime or Environment . which allow any Mobile application to run on top of IT.
Please give me couple of links or materials to help me out.
Thanks in advance.
So therefore I would like to create a more streamlined version of my site that is better tailored to these devices. However how do detect that the user has come to the site via a mobile device and how can i redirect them to my tailored pageMany thanks in advance
I am trying to get the screenHeight and width:
// Get MobileCapabilities from current Request.Browser
MobileCapabilities currentCapabilities = (MobileCapabilities)Request.Browser;
// get a property of the browser
Response.Write(currentCapabilities.ScreenPixelsHeight + " <br>");
Response.Write(currentCapabilities.ScreenPixelsWidth + " <br>");
but this is always show that the Height is 480 & the width is 640
I am trying on HTC with Opera Mobile 9.5
OMA Device Management (OMA-DM), based on a dialect of XML called SyncML, can be used to provision and manage mobile devices in an enterprise scenario. We'll show you how.

Last week Android updated their software (changed the display from 480px to 800px) so all the mobile tweaks we made for our apps are no longer work on Droid Phones.
I would need to identify the User Agent(e.g. Android) and switch style sheets depending. (We don't want to redirect to another page, just switch style sheets).
Anybody know any lightweight solution ?
Thanks in Advance.
(we were using 480px pixels to identify if the user was coming from iPhone or Android and switched stylesheets accordingly. If I changed it to 800px some desktop monitors and the iPad would see the mobile version and not the desktop version. Not good.)
I have a mobile web application published at www.tofilmfest.ca/tiffwidget. It has one form where you input criteria for what you're looking fork, and another one that displays the results. The results form displays two backbuttons for returning to the input page and they work fine.
The problem is when you return to the input page using the HARDWARE backbutton on your mobile device. When you do this, the input page reappears, but is no longer functional -- you have to refresh it to get it working again. The functional software backbuttons use redirection to return to the input page. Can anybody think of a workaround that will enable the input page to remain responsive irregardless of how you return to it?
the reason i posted this question is that i just added ajax toolkit in my visual studio 2005 and i installed ajax web extension version 1;
downloaded from microsoft website named "ASPAJAXExtSetup" but when i added ajax object in my web form i ve gotten this error:
"Error 1: Indirect reference is being made to assembly System.Web.Extensions version 220.127.116.11, which contains 'AjaxControlToolkit.CalendarExtender'. This Project references a prior version of System.Web.Extensions version 1.0.61025.0. To use 'AjaxControlToolkit.CalendarExtender', you must replace the reference to System.Web.Extensions with version 18.104.22.168 or higher.
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\AJAXEnabledWebSite1\Default.aspx 1 1 C:\...\AJAXEnabledWebSite1\"
is there any option to upgrade ajax web extension version 1 to upper without installing visual studio 2008 and .net 3.5? or any other solution ?
thank you so much
