Creating Mobile Internet Toolkit Project

Assuming you have the correct configuration and have installed the Mobile Internet Toolkit, you can create a new project in Visual Studio .NET. Refering to figure 1, select File|New|Project and select the Mobile Web Application applet from the New Project dialog. This step will create a new project on the host server you selected, containing files almost identical to those for an ASP.NET Web Application. The most notable difference is that an ASP.NET Web Page inherits from System.Web.UI.Page and a Mobile Web Page inherits from System.Web.UI.MobileControls.MobilePage. You will also note that the designer for a Mobile Page looks a bit different (refer to figure 2).

Figure 1: Select the Mobile Web Application applet from the New Project dialog, shown.

The Form (see figure 2) is the region that we paint our user controls onto by dragging and dropping them from the Mobile Web Forms toolbox tab (refer to figure 3). (The Form is defined in System.Web.UI.MobileControls.Form.)
