Mobile Web Development in Visual Studio 2008

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Mobile' started by Nathan Sokalski, Jan 14, 2009.

  1. I recently installed Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition on my machine,
    and am trying to figure out how to do mobile web development. After some
    searching on the web, I found that the templates such as Mobile Web Form are
    no longer included. However, I was also told before buying Visual Studio
    2008 Professional Edition was that one of the differences between the
    Standard and Professional editions was the ability to do mobile development.
    Can somebody please help me figure out exactly just where this ability is?

    vs2008 dropped support for mobile web applications. The mobile controls
    can still used, but they are the same as 2003. if you google you can get
    vs2008 templates for mobile web apps, but as the new generation of
    mobile devices are full blown browsers (webkit or opera based), the old
    mobile approach did not work. mostly you design for the smaller screen
    using w3c html 4.0 standards.

    You might also find some programming examples on Chris Crowe's excellent
    IIS resources page...
