I am struggling to find a way to create a marquee element (scrolling text) in an asp.net 2.0 wap site. For a web site I would use the <marquee> html tag, but this does not seem to be supported for with .net's mobile web.
If any of you could shed any light on this problem I would greatly appreciate it.

Does anyone at least know if this is a known limitation of .net?

i found this site
it shows some code on how to make a marquee in XHTML MP which is WAP 2.0.
im not sure that a marquee is even supported in WAP1.0
the differences we have here, are device specific.
theres even mini html browsers out there its quite a range of devices.
you may be able to put some of the code i found in that article, in your page, and some devices may support it, some will not..

Hi, thanks for your response.
If I add this as an HTML file to my website it would work fine. The problem is in the aspx page the style property doesn't seem to work on <p> tags at all (if you load it in visual studio you will get the warning "..style property not supported..".
Unfortunately I need the marquee intergrated into my site on every page (aspx pages).
Do you know if there is a way to manually code the WML/xHTML or whatever within .net?

hya, have you tried putting it directly in your code like this:
<p style="display: -wap-marquee; -wap-marquee-dir: rtl; -wap-marquee-style: scroll">Hello, welcome to our
i get the little warning in the error messages place too, but it still builds, and deploys

hi! Yes I did try this, mine also builds and deploys, but the scrolling does not work (the scrolling does work through .html file).
I think when it builds it ignores the "style" property, which it said was unsupported. So it deploys something like
<p>Hello, welcome to our WCSS Tutorial.</p>
