URGENT!!.............

I have created a web application in ASP.net for use on PDA's, when tested with IE on windows mobile 5 it works 100%, but now with Windows mobile 6 it does not work properly anymore. All the ASP.net server controls dont function as they should...ie you cannot click on them, like the click event is disabled or something. The link buttons, lists, treeviews etc dont react anymore when clicked on. Is there some compatibility issue with ASP.net and IE on Mobile 6 ?

How can i fix this, Anyone have any suggestions...This is very very URGENT!!

when you goto Pocket internet explorer can you go to Options -- View -- and select desktop and tell me the results.

Did you download the Mobile 6.0 SDK and test on the emulator?

I have downloaded the Mobile 6.0 SDK, but cannot get the emulator to cradle properly, and therefore cannot conect to my localhost Server.

Does it maybe not have something to do with the Internet explorer on the mobile, and that it is for some reason not compatible with ASP.net. Do you think that installing a different browser may work?

Oh ok..But what i dont understand is why would this app work 100% on Mobile 5 and not mobile 6. ASP.net is microsoft, so its not like they forgot to include that functionality into mobile 6. I just dont understand this, and niether do any of my work collegues! Im stumped

I think theres a problem with his device because i had 3 devices on mobile 6.0 and they worked better then the mobile 5.0 for all the asp.net pages.

Well then maybe its something with my code then?? Do i need to specify any special settings or properties in the config file or anywhere else? Is it possible that this is the case?

I wont understand why though, as i am just using the standard asp.net controls such as the treeview, link buttons, lists etc, Do i need to set certain properties for these controls maybe?

Ill try anything right now.. ha ha!

Otherwise...just to test...Do you have a PDA urself with mobile 6 on it, then i can give u the URL of the site and you can check if it works with urs? Sound like a good idea?

And which Version of mobile 6 did the ASP sites work fine?

Thanx

Any progress yet?

I have come to the conclusion that it may be a javascript error. As one of the ASP.NET controls tries to perform a postback it is supposed to run a javascript telling it to postback, but does not do so. So i am guessing that it has to do with the javascript.

Any ideas on this one? Maybe some sort of security updates or such?

I installed Opera and it works then! So i am assuming that it is a browser problem with the new version of pocket IE. Hopefully this will get sorted out soon.

Thanks for your help! i appreciate it!
