Question about displaying web page on a Palm
      #28208 - 08/08/07 07:44 AM

Hi all,

I am a first-time poster. I am looking for help in developing a web page that I want to display on my Palm PDA. I need some technical help. Is this the place to ask such a question? Or does anyone know of a good site for this kind of info?

Thanks,
Bob

The Palm web browser can handle most all standard HTML, some CSS and just about no Javascript. Post your specific questions here, and I'll see if I can answer them. I don't recall ever seeing a guidelines document for developing with Blazer (Palm's web browser) in mind.

Ok thanks!

Let me explain what I am doing. I have a web site that my customers use. I built this web site using ASP.Net. Everything works great and the users love it. Now I have one web page that I want to be able to display on a Palm PDA. Please note that I did not use the mobile web page or mobile controls that ASP.Net offers. It is still designed and developed for a regular PC and using Internet Explorer browser.

So I took this page and made it real small so that it would fit on the PDA. The page consists of a few labels, buttons, and link buttons. All of these seem to work fine on the PDA. Also, the fonts and colors seem to be ok. I was using AJAX and that did not seem to work but I removed it and I'm ok with that.

But here is the problem. I use a Gridview control in ASP.Net. This is a list control taht lets me display data in tabular form. I have several textboxs within my Gridview. In html, it is rendered as a <Table>. Now my Gridview does display my data. But my textboxs are all real wide. In ASP.Net, I make the width of each textbox as 6px. I want these textboxs very small since a 1 to 9 is all that is entered here. So this is being ignored on the PDA but works perfectly on a regular PC and browser. It is frustrating since it is so close to working!! It would be great if I could use my existing page.

Thanks,
Bob
