Key Concepts
Two Sides of the Same Coin

 Adaptive rendering
   Mobile controls and device adapters generate
   an appropriate rendering for each device
   Programmatic model to customise the
   rendering for a particular device.
 Building Mobile Web Applications
 The Adaptive Rendering Process
1. HTTP        Discover device              2. ASP.NET
request        capabilities                 processing
               • Height and width
               • Color
               • Images
               • Phone call ability
                                      Render ASPX page
                                      • Process page
                                      • Each control builds
                                      its own layout
              Returned as proper
              browser protocol
              • HTML
              • cHTML
              • WML
4. Adaptive

A Brief Aside…
Cookieless Sessions

 Session State no longer requires client cookie
 support for SessionID
   Can optionally track SessionID in URL

 Requires no code changes to the application
   All relative links continue to work
Cookieless Sessions
How To…
1.   Create/Edit “web.config” file in the vroot
2.   Add following text:

           <sessionState cookieless=“true”/>

 Environment                                  Production
Customising for Particular Devices

   Optimise the generated rendering
       Per device or class of device

       Used on a per application basis

       Comparison- or Evaluator-based filters

   Control the exact display

   Ability to override default behavior
Device-Specific Customisation
Property Overrides

  Change the property value of a control only
  on certain devices
    Example: Set the Text property of a Label
    control to a long string on large screen devices,
    and to a short string on small screen devices
Device-Specific Customisation
Using Property Overrides
  In persistence format
  <mobile:Label id="Label2" Runat="server" Font-Bold="True">
       <Choice Filter="isPocketIE"
         Text="...Breaking News - Breaking News...">
       <Choice Text="News Just In! "></Choice>

  In code
  MobileCapabilities cap =
  if (cap.HasCapability(“isPocketIE“, null))
    Label2.Text = "...Breaking News - Breaking News...“;
  Else Label2.Text = "News Just In! ";
Defining Device Filters
   All customisation with Property Overrides
   and Templates relies on device filters
   Visual Studio .NET creates a default set of
   device filters in Web.config
   <filter name="isHTML32" compare="PreferredRenderingType"
      argument="html32" />
   <filter name="isWML11" compare="PreferredRenderingType"
      argument="wml11" />
   <filter name="isPocketIE" compare="Browser"
      argument="Pocket IE" />
   <filter name="prefersGIF" compare="PreferredImageMIME"
      argument="image/gif" />
   <filter name="prefersWBMP" compare="PreferredImageMIME"
      argument="image/vnd.wap.wbmp" />
 Customisation - Templates
                                    ObjectList Control


                                     Item Template


                                      ItemDetails             Cell Phone Limited
Pocket PC Customisation                 Template                   Customisation

    DataBinder.Eval(((ObjectListItem)Container).DataItem, “FirstName”)
Using XML Web Services and the
Object List
XHTML Browsers And CSS
 Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
   The best way to define presentation
   Separates presentation from content
   W3C recommendation (CSS1)
   Supported by major desktop browsers
 CSS is also supported by the latest mobile devices
   Pocket Internet Explorer on SmartPhone 2003 supports HTML 4.01,
   XHTML-Basic, and CSS1
   WAP 2.0 devices support XHTML-MP and Wireless CSS
   (Nokia Series 60, Sony-Ericsson Smartphones)
 ASP.NET Mobile Controls Runtime
   Supports XHTML browsers in Device Update 2 and later
   Generates CSS style sheet dynamically from standard mobile
   style properties
Programming CSS Stylesheets
 Create a style sheet in your       font-weight: bold;
                                    font-size: smaller;
 project                            color: orangered;
 Add CSSLocation attribute to <mobile:Form> tag
 pointing at stylesheet
 <mobile:Form id="Form1" runat="server"
    csslocation="stylesheet1.css“ … >

 Set allowCustomAttributes=“true” in web.config
   <mobileControls allowCustomAttributes="true“ />
Programming CSS Stylesheets
 Use CssClass attribute to apply a style class
 in the style sheet to a control
 <mobile:label id="Label1" runat=“server”
   cssclass=“Subhead" >
   This label uses the style from the CSS!

 Other attributes
   CssCommandClass: Use with ObjectList to style
   the command link
   CssLabelClass: Use with ObjectList to style the
   label fields
   CssPagerClass: Use with Form to style
   pagination prompts
Using CSS
Speech On The Mobile Web?
Why Bother?
 When speech is faster or easier
 For what?
    Data Entry
       Query the user verbally
       Get input verbally
    Command and control
       Say what you want rather than clicking through menus
    Searching through data
       Ever tried sifting through 3,000 rows with a stylus?
SALT And ‘Speech Tags’
 Speech Application Language Tags
   Extends HTML, XHTML etc.
   Enables multimodal (speech + GUI) and telephony
   Object and event model, script for dialog
 Standard being driven by SALT Forum
   Founded 10.1.01: Cisco, Comverse, Intel,
   Microsoft, Philips, Speechworks
Speech Tags Overview
  <prompt >     configures speech synthesizer and
                plays out recorded prompts
  <reco >       configures and executes speech
                recognizer, handles events
  <grammar > specifies recognition resources
  <bind >       binds recognition results to page
  <dtmf >       specifies telephone keypad input
  Call Control object
      executes call transfer, conference, etc.
      handles events (answer, hangup etc.)
