Please look at following links as you are starting up with mobile web development.
- Good Tutorial for startup
Once you have knowledge from above link go with below one to take yourself to next level of asp.net mobile web development.
1) http://51degrees.codeplex.com - It is an ASP.NET open source module which detects mobile devices and provides auto redirection to mobile optimized pages when request is coming from mobile device. It makes use
of WURFL mobile device database. For redirection there is no need to modify existing ASP.NET web application pages.
Below the sample how easily you can configure Multiple Mobile Redirect Locations
In this example MobileDeviceManufacturer is used as the property. This properties are exposed through the HttpRequest classes Browser property. Both WURFL capabilities and ASP.NET Browser properties can be used with the property attribute. If
none of the <locations> match and the requesting device is a mobile device then the mobileHomePageUrl will be used.
<!--Send iphone to their own home page.-->
<add property="MobileDeviceManufacturer" matchExpression="Apple"/>
<!--Send blackberry to their own home page.-->
<add property="MobileDeviceManufacturer" matchExpression="RIM"/>
<!--Send nokia to their own home page.-->
<add property="MobileDeviceManufacturer" matchExpression="Nokia"/>

Hope above finds you useful.

Just tell me following
1) You have current ASP.NET website running which you want to make run successfully on Windows Mobile Browser considering the capablities supported by Windows Mobile Device?
2) Are you only targetting your Mobile website to get browsed from Windows Mobile Devices only?
3) Your current ASP.NET website is created using what .NET version?
Please let me know above things
Sep 09, 2009 10:54 PM|sadeed|LINK

If you are targetting only Windows Mobile than follow below, link to get knowledge of the control supported for mobile forms. Create sample pages for mobiles using below link. Run your mobile website using IE present in Windows Mobile
If ever you want to customize your mobile website for different Windows Mobile make use of
Just start with some sample pages you will get more idea.
To test your mobile webiste you need to download Window Mobile Emulators or you can use the one coming with Visual Studio 2005.
Please start and let me know if you stuck at any point.

I have gone through your suggestions could you please confirm that when we need to have a Mobile Internet Toolkit (MMIT) and also do I need to prepare a seperate application for the mobile device or I can work in the same aspx page.
Further if we go to File, new, Project we find a Smartdevice Project........it ask you for a deployment plat form........I am getting confused as what to start with what I need to have installed on my PC and all that.
By the way I want to stick inside my current web application and being into the same web application I want to have mobile controls to work with starting from a login page. Any link that can serve as an example or so.

As you told that you are using VS2005 for development. There are no separate templates anymore it supports under single web sites different type of forms (web form and mobile form).
Here what you can do to check it.
1) Create new asp.net web site from File->New Web Site.
2) After that you go for "Add New Item" choose add Mobile Web Form. When you have mobile web form you can add mobile controls etc to it.
Once above is done download any emulator and check your mobile form.
Hope this clears you

I followed File->New Web Site and in the Add Item I can see any Mobile Form or so....any ideas on this
