Mobile Web Forms

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Visual Studio 2008 doesn't have item templates for ASP.NET Mobile Web Forms (which were previously available in Visual Studio 2003). What about VS2010? Same lack? Thanks.

Mobile Web Forms - Database setup



I recently downloaded the ASP .NET mobile web forms templates for VS2010. Where/how can I get the database scripts to set up a db for the default login example? I've set my connection string hoping it would automatically create the db for me on startup, but now I'm thinking it doesn't work that way.

Any ideas?

Thanks =]


Just code it.

Serving Silverlight Apps from Windows Mobile

Even if mobile dev is not my every day work, thanks to the .Net Compact Framework, it's still .Net programming.

Here is the scenario:

You come back home, you have a windows mobile phone wifi capable and you want to quickly get access to your phone pictures from your home network.
You just activate the Wifi, run my app and then browse to the provided link from any computer on the network.

Routing for Web Forms in ASP.NET 4.0

posted a prototype demonstrating how one could use Routing within Web Forms. This is something you can do today with ASP.NET 3.5 SP1, because of the work we did to separate Routing from ASP.NET MVC. I would have liked to include Web Form Routing as part of the Routing feature when we were working on SP1, but we didn't have the time to do so in a robust manner before SP1 was locked down.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0

Applications have special support in Windows Forms. For starters, you can manage and tailor your application's lifetime, and, when the work flow is disrupted by an unhandled exception, you can choose from several methods of response. Then, there are several application models that you can employ, including Single Document Interface (SDI) and Multiple Document Interface (MDI) applications, each of which can support either multiple-instance or single-instance mode, the former the VS05 default and the latter requiring special consideration. All applications, however, can discover and use a wide variety of information about the system and environment they execute in.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0-Single-MDI Applications

Consider an MDI application like Microsoft Excel; files opened from the file system (by double-clicking) are all opened as separate child windows within the parent Excel window.7 For the first instance of an MDI application to open a new child window to display the file that was passed to the second instance of the application, the second instance must be able to communicate with the initial instance.

Explained: Forms Authentication in ASP.NET

This module explains how forms authentication works in ASP.NET version 2.0. It explains how IIS and ASP.NET authentication work together, and it explains the role and operation of the FormsAuthenticationModule class.

Using Forms Authentication in ASP.NET - Part 1

Classic ASP developers often had to "roll their own" authentication scheme, however, in ASP.NET much of the grunt work has been taken out. This article outlines how things have changed and how FormsAuthentication can be used to secure a Web site with a minimal amount of code.

ASP.NET Forms Authentication - Part 1

Often, in legacy Web applications, users authenticate themselves via a Web form. This Web form submits the user's credentials to business logic that determines their authorization level. Upon successful authentication, the application then submits a ticket in the form of a cookie, albeit a hard cookie or session variable. This ticket contains anything from just a valid session identification access token to customized personalization values.

ASP.NET forms authentication with roles

.A timeout is specified in minutes. This is "time since last request" not the "time since login". If a login is indicated to be persistent (described later) this is ignored.
.A protection method is specified for the cookie.
Next I wanted to specify a folder to which access is restricted to people who have logged in. To do this I entered the following code in the web.config file (beneath

Forms Authentication in ASP.NET

In this tutorial you will learn about Forms Authentication in ASP.NET 2.0 - Forms Authentication class, Cookie Domain, Forms Cookies, The Login Control, Signin, Signout, Authenticate, Redirect, Login Status, Login Name and Login View Controls.

Determine whether Forms Server is installed on a server

Check whether the Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.dll and FormServer.aspx files are installed on the server.

How to programmatically add controls to Windows forms at run time by using Visual C#

Create a Windows Forms Application
Start Visual Studio .NET or Visual Studio 2005 or a later version, and create a new Visual C# Windows Application project named WinControls. Form1 is added to the project by default.
Double-click Form1 to create and view the Form1_Load event procedure.
Add private instance variables to the Form1 class to work with common Windows controls. The Form1 class starts as follows:

Reading and Writing Images From a Windows Mobile Database using UltraLite 10(C#)

Periodically I get a request for information on how to read and write binary data to a database running on Windows Mobile. If you search the Internet you can typically find examples that are available on Windows Desktops or allow you to read and write to a local file system. The problem is that it can take a bit of work to get this code to work on Windows Mobile accessing a database.

Ultimately you might be asking, why would I want to store and image in a database? Well in an environment where you synchronizing data between a local mobile database and a consolidated (central) database this can be extremely useful. Imagine if an insurance adjuster went to an accident scene, took a picture of a damaged car, loaded it into his Windows Mobile database and then replicated that image up to the Insurance headquarters for approval. All of this could be done in a very short period of time when using images in the database. Another good example might be a doctor who was waiting for a patient chart to become available. If you could store the image in a database this chart could be sent down to the doctor's device once it became available.

For this article I am not going to get into how to synchronize the images to and from a remote and central database as this is typically fairly straightforward when using a data synchronization technologies like MobiLink

Creating a Smartphone Application and Using Data from SQL Mobile

In this exercise, you will use Visual Studio 2005 to create a Smartphone application. You will associate commands with a mobile device's soft keys, and you will add the ability to scroll through the list of available products (a list of images). You will create a data source for an existing SQL Mobile database, and then test the application in the Windows Mobile 5.0 emulator.

In the following procedure, you will create a new Windows Mobile 5.0 project in Visual Studio.

How to create a windows mobile (Smart Device) .Cab installer

A Cab file is the default setup format for Windows CE and Windows Mobile devices (similar to windows .msi files). You probably already have installed several application using .cab files, and are familiar with the concept. One point which is often unknown is that .cab files are processed by wceloader.exe, and it can only install one .cab file at a time. That means we cannot have nested .cab files. It doesn't mean we cannot have .cab files contained by another .cab, but the contained .cab files will not be installed during the installation of the container .cab. We should install it manually after the container .cab file installation has been completed.

There are two ways to create a cabinet (.Cab) file. The traditional one, and the friendly VS Smart Device Cab project which doesn't require additional coding, but which also relies on the traditional one at low-level.

Windows Mobile Wireless Ad Hoc Networking Tutorial permalink

Despite what I've written earlier about it is better to get a wireless router and using infrastructure mode, there are still situations where adhoc mode might be useful. Imagine visiting a friend who has a notebook with wireless connection. He also has internet connection, and you'd like to check your emails. But he needs to work on something with his notebook. Internet connection sharing using ad hoc mode would be useful here.

And so, I've re-written the guide for Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows XP with SP2. The old version of the guide for Pocket PC 2002 is still accessible
