Hi

I am trying to build a web form in ASP.net 2015 that fits the screen of mobile devices. The first bit of code shows my markup for the page. The second bit of code shows the markup in my Site.Mobile.Master page. The  web page can  be seen at http://webappmobi.azurewebsites.net/
The text boxes aren't automatically fitting the size of different mobile device. What have I done wrong?

<%@ Page Title="" Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" MasterPageFile="~/Site.Mobile.Master" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="Mobile1._Default" %>
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="HeadContent" runat="server">
</asp:Content>

<asp:Content ID="Content3" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" runat="server">
    <table>
        <tr>
            <td>
                <asp:Label ID="Label2" runat="server" Text="Username"></asp:Label>
            </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>
                    <!--Responsive TextBox style is in Site.Mobile.Master-->
                    <asp:TextBox ID="txtUsername" runat="server" CssClass="responsive-textbox"></asp:TextBox>
            </td>
        </tr>

There is nothing there that needs to fit anything so what are you talking about?  What are you using to test your code?  A phone?  Chrome in emulation mode?

For example                     <asp:TextBox ID="txtUsername" runat="server" CssClass="responsive-textbox"></asp:TextBox>

uses the style
  <style type='text/css'>
    .responsive-textbox { width: 100%; }
I want this to fit thewidth of the screen. When I view it on a Windows phone and an android phone this doesn't happen

I found that moving the text boxes out of the table made a difference
