I am designing ASP.net Web pages and not sure if this would be the right way to do this.I am designing the web sites that will be accessed from either regular computers or mobile devices (phone).I was thinking to detect at very first page that whether users are coming from mobile browser or regular browser and direct to appropriate pages. So for mobile users, create/display separate UIs (rearrange controls to fit on mobile device) and for regular users, create/display separate UIs. The backend functionalities will be same, but just the UIs. Therefore, in this case I will create two separate projects in same solution, one for mobile UIs, and other one for regular UIs, but same code behinds.
So I'd like to redirect mobile users to a different page. But instead of trying to detect any number of mobile browsers, I'd just like to see if the user is using IE, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or Opera; all other users go to the mobile site. My biggest problem is detecting regular Safari from mobile Safari.
We have our site which user accesses from desktop browser as www.domainname.org now I am working on mobile version of the same. I came to know that some mobile sites have URL as [URL] so i thought of making our site as accessible from both domainnames I am using WS 2008 & IIS 7.0.
I have an existing web site and I would like to create a mobile version of it that is more suitable. For instance, the main site uses drop-down menus and we all know those are quite the fail on mobile devices.I would like to redirect to my mobile version (it will be a subdomain of the current site) if I detect a request from a mobile browser. So when they Google something and come to my site, they will automatically see the mobile version (just like Wikipedia).Does ASP.NET provide an easy way of doing this
designing a view for Mobile browsers in ASP.NET MVC framework. I am new to this mobile web application development.

I have demo this weekend with my client so i would appriciate if some one respond imidiately.
I'm writing a web site (ASP.NET/C#) that is specifically targeted at mobile phones.On the master page I have put an ASP menu. This works fine in IE8 and Firefox, but when I try viewing it from my Nokia browser, while the menu is visible, its behavior is incorrect: I tap on the menu to open it, and instead of opening the next level of menus, the control disappears altogether!Interestingly, I got the same behavior using Chrome on my computer.I haven't yet tried on Safari, but the message is already pretty clear: the ASP.NET menu control doesn't work on the Nokia browser, and that is a showstopper. What alternatives do I have? It needs to work on Nokia, Safari and Opera, at least.I saw in a similar question that someone suggested writing a custom server control. Nice idea, I'm sure... but how do you explain that to this ASP.NET newbie?
I am trying to start a new mobile web application project but cannot find the mobile page template originally available on VS 2005, nor can I get the mobile web controls to display in the toolbox even though I have then all selected in the tool-> select toolbox items why? and what can I do?
I am developing a web based application for a Motorolla Mc 9090, it is a wireless barcode scanner running windows mobile 5.0.
The idea is to centralize the inventory in one database, by scanning items, serials, bins etc.
I have a set of pages each containg forms, where the user will have to scan an item, and automaticall the scanner has a carriege return (ENTER key) the idea was to have the user simply scan, and the page would automatically click the button posting to server for processing and then the server would reply.
For some reason i cannot get the focus() to work as well as the defaultbutton propperty of the form. There is also 1 more problem, the readOnly textboxes look the same as the non readOnly textboxes, even with the backcolor property changed.(guessing this is just MS)
