Many handheld wireless devices such as cellular phones and PDAs already have the ability to access Web sites. So how do you build Web applications that tap this wireless audience? Although there are a number of limitations to wireless devices-such as screen size, navigation, and connection speed-you can use familiar Web development technologies to make your existing Web applications available to mobile users. This article outlines the services and equipment currently available to support wireless Web access. A sample wireless-accessible Web site that dynamically draws data from a SQL Server database back end in real time is created using tools such as ASP and XML.

I am having a weird problem with VS 2010. I am using the premium edition.
It seems that none of the asp controls <asp:..> tag are recognized by the editor. I keep getting a green underline under each control name. To check this, I have created a brand new web site targeting .NET framework 4.0 and even in the auto-generated pages, none of the asp controls is recognized. I am also unable to see the properties of any control if I click inside the tag (at an attribute). All I get is the ID of the button and the tag <HTML ELEMENT>! Furthermore, when I drop an ASP control from the toolbox, the attribute "ID" is not generated. Only when I switch to the design view that I can get to see the properties of the control and the ID is set automatically. The message for the green underline says: Element 'Button' is not a known element. This can occur if there is a compilation error in the Web Site, or the web.config file is missing.
Does anyone know what is going on?
I ran into an issud to day with the follwoing code. The strPanelOrder session variable is false, however, once it goes into the next if statement and sets the strTrimOrder to True, it changes the strPanelOrder session varialbe to true as well. Why is this and how to I stop that from happening?
If Session(strPanelOrder) Is "False" Then
If (strItemNumber.Length() = 10) And (strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "FS" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "FC" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "DS" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "DC") Then
Session(strPanelOrder) = "True"
If Session(strTrimOrder) Is "False" Then
If (strItemNumber.Substring(4, 1) = "T") And (strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) <> "AC") And (strItemNumber <> "Length") Then
Session(strTrimOrder) = "True"
Thanks in advance for taking a look at this.
I am trying to invoke a window using the following commands:
Response.Write("<script>" & vbCrLf)"
Response.Write(window.open('" & url & "','','toolbar=0,status=1,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,menubar=1');" & vbCrLf)"
The problem however is that on IE8 the session object is not carried over to this new window. I get "Nullpointerexception" when I try to retrieve the connection object from the session. It works on IE6 though.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
We're trying to migrate a one of our apps to our dev server for testing and development, but we're having problems with the membership functionality. We can add users, but there seems to be a disconnect with roles. We can query the aspnet_users table and find the new user in there, but when we query the aspnet_usersinroles table, that user id is not present.
We're also unable to run the Roles.GetUsersInRole("somerole") method. It returns 0 records. When I run Roles.ApplicationName, it returns the correct name, so .NET should be passing the correct app name.
We're just a little baffled. If anyone could shed some light on what could be the issue, we would appreciate it.
I have been using the following tutorial and had to convert the code to C# for my project, now i cant get the code to work, im getting red line under the word "in" in the UpdateRolesFromList, i tried to add a datasource on page load for the checkboxlist like so RoleList.DataSource = PopulateRoleList(User.Identity.Name.ToString());
and gives me error saying cannot implictly convert type 'void' to 'object'
What am i missing, that when i load the page or even do a search it never displays the checkbox list as it shows in the tutorial?
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
public void PopulateRoleList(string userName)
string roleNames = null;
string roleName = null;
roleNames = Roles.GetAllRoles();
foreach (string roleName_loopVariable in roleNames)
roleName = r
I am creating a new workflow using SPD on MOSS 2007, SP2, and having a problem with it.
The workflow is fairly basic, where when a user creates a new infopath form it sends an email to another person, who enters some info, then selects where it get's routed to next. There are 3 more similar processes before the form is marked as
completed. At each step the WF emails the person selected as next reciepient and updates a "flag" saying which step the process is in.
The problem is that sometimes when I update a form, (all emails come to me since it's still in testing), the workflow stops with a message of "Failed on Start (retrying)". After doing some digging I found this link:
So I went in and added an action for every update I do to first check the document out, do the update, and then check the document back in. Well the problem I get now is that the WF fails with a message about unable to check the document back in.
I tried troubleshooting it by putting in WF Stop and Log entry actions to try to figure out exactly where the problem was happening.
I thought I had fixed it
I am modifying the infio path form 2007 from my state machine workflow to constantly update the status fields in the request form.
below is the method i created for the same..

SPUserToken token = workflowProperties.Web.CurrentUser.UserToken;
using (SPSite _site = new SPSite(workflowProperties.Site.ID, token))
_site.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
using (SPWeb _web = _site.OpenWeb(workflowProperties.Web.ID))
SPListItem item = _web.Lists[workflowProperties.List.ID].Items[workflowProperties.Item.UniqueId];
