  • User-251083531 posted
    I put together a very simple mobilehelloworld.aspx page with visual studio. It has 2 mobilecontrol forms on it. The first form calls the second form. It works when displayed in IE browser. I use IE to create a mobil favorite of the page. I have my Journado 540/Pocket PC hooked to my xp with a cradle and when I activesync the two the mobilhelloworld can be viewed with the pocket IE program. It shows up as http://localhost/jobilehelloworld/(ohxf..... The problem is that when I try to click the button to go to the next form I get the error dialog box "The page you are looking for cannot be found". Do I need to install something else on the Pocket PC to make this work. Or am I not deploying the form to the device correctly? Any help will be appreciated.

    Can you try simply posting your mobile page and check whether that works correctly for you? -Kashif

    Sounds like your page is "deployed" correctly (the page actually sits on your PC, the link is the only thing that gets deployed to the Jornada). If you open the link you provided in a regular IE browser on your PC, does it submit properly? We'll be glad to help if we can see the code as well. Cheers, Steve

    No, the .NET Compact Framework has no support for hosting Web pages or Web Services...

    This forum refers to creating sites that are conveniently viewable on mobile devices. So, it will render appropriate code on a PDA or a WAP cell phone, transparently. ASP.NET does not run on the Pocket PC OS.

    If you want to access an ASP.NET site on a Pocket PC, since you cannot run IIS or ASP.NET on the Pocket PC, yes, you must have some network connection to the site involved. That said, you can certainly create a traditional Windows Forms application on the Pocket PC, and that application can use Web Services (acting as a client hitting a Web Service) to keep the local Pocket PC's copy of SQL CE up to date whenever a connection is available...

    I also faces this kind of problem. Actually I want to develop a simple application that read a barcode from my HandHeld pc running Windows CE. How can I design a interface and extract a barcode no into textfiles because after that I want to upload the data to my PC. Can I use .Net Framework to do this ?
