Can anyone enlighten me as to how to use the Win mob 7 emulator to view asp.net application..?
Im using VS 2010 Pro SP1, the [Windows Phone Emulator] is greyed out.. I have looked in tools / connect to device, but 'connect to device' is not there... also not in Debug / either!
I can run the emulator on its own... so i know it works, and if i start a silverlight project for win phone app dev. it works for that also... but no good to me right now!

Think ive got round this by just copying the url of the site at runtime, and pasting it into the emultors address bar..
Duno if thats the right way but it works...!

Hi roopeshreddy, thank you for the info..
I have decided to follow an asp.net tutorial regarding 'displaying app. in mobile browser'... adding a mobile folder in my solution explorer and making new pages specific to a mobile user/browser by detecting browser type, to hopfully provide the best user
experience and limit zooming and panning etc.
The problem I am having is creating a good design as I am just guessing the layout i.e. where to position textboxes ect.
Trying to design a layout for a mobile on a full size web form in visual studio 2010 pro is extremlly difficult and time consuming. I was wondering if you knew of any tutorial to help with this, and / or is it possible to get a layout template that opens
up in VS to aid mobile browser design. Ive downloaded Opera emlator etc. but its still a trial and error process which I am keen to avoid if possible.
