Please note that, following the withdrawal of Carbide.vs, Nokia Developer no longer supports the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE for Symbian C++ development.

ASP.NET is a framework to develop web applications over a control-based model. ASP.NET Mobile Controls (formerly known as the Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit (MMIT)) extend the .NET Framework to build mobile Web applications by enabling ASP.NET to deliver markup to a wide variety of mobile devices. You can develop mobile websites using the free IDE from Microsoft Visual Web Developer Express.

A mobile webform (.ASPX file) can contain many Mobile Forms (similar concept to cards in WML) containing many Mobile Controls.

A mobile control is responsable of render some feature in many languages and format depending on mobile capabilities. So, from only one source code we can deliver many kinds of mobile web applications:

  • cHTML (Compact HTML)
  • HTML 3.2
  • WML as defined in WAP 1.0
  • XHTML MP (Mobile Profile) as defined in WAP 2.0

List of Controls

The mobile web controls available in the .NET Framework 1.1 (also in .NET 2.0 and 3.0) are:

  • Form
  • Panel
  • Label
  • TextBox
  • TextView
  • Command
  • Link
  • PhoneCall
  • Image
  • List
  • SelectionList
  • ObjectList
  • DeviceSpecific
  • StyleSheet
  • Calendar
  • AdRotator
  • Validation Controls
