The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.

Attributes

Attribute

Description

allowCustomAttributes

Optional Boolean attribute.

Specifies whether mobile controls can have custom attributes.

The default value is false.

cookielessDataDictionaryType

Optional Type attribute.

Defines the type of the dictionary class that maintains the keys for cookieless forms authentication. To turn off this behavior, set the value to an empty string ("").

The default value is CookielessData.

sessionStateHistorySize

Optional Int32 attribute.

Defines the size of the history to use to keep the application view state in the server session.

The default value is 6.

Child Elements

Element

Description

device

Defines a new adapter set that maps ASP.NET mobile controls to corresponding adapters within the <system.web> and <mobileControls> sections of the Web.config configuration file.

Parent Elements

Element

Description

configuration

The required root element in every configuration file used by the common language runtime and the .NET Framework applications.

system.web

Specifies the root element for the ASP.NET configuration settings in a configuration file. Contains elements that configure ASP.NET Web applications and control how the applications behave.

The mobile controls configuration settings also provide general configuration settings for ASP.NET mobile Web Forms pages. All mobile controls allow the developer to set custom control attributes using the IAttributeAccessor interface of the .NET Framework. This interface provides the GetAttribute and SetAttribute methods; in addition, the MobileControl class exposes a dictionary called CustomAttributes. For more information about custom attributes, see the Custom Attributes for Mobile Controls documentation.

For more information about how to create and configure adapters, see the sections in the Adding New Device Adapters and Device Support documentation.

Default Configuration

The following default <mobileControls> element is configured in the root Web.config file in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

The following example illustrates a control that inherits from the Form class, and provides the ability to raise events or perform other actions after a given timer interval.

<mobileControls>
    <device name="PortalHtmlDeviceAdapters" inheritsFrom="HtmlDeviceAdapters">
        <control name="ASPNetPortal.MobileControls.TabbedPanel, Portal" adapter="ASPNetPortal.MobileControls.HtmlTabbedPanelAdapter,Portal" />
        <control name="ASPNetPortal.MobileControls.LinkCommand, Portal" adapter="ASPNetPortal.MobileControls.HtmlLinkCommandAdapter,Portal" />
    </device>
    <device name="PortalChtmlDeviceAdapters" inheritsFrom="ChtmlDeviceAdapters">
        <control name="ASPNetPortal.MobileControls.TabbedPanel, Portal" adapter="ASPNetPortal.MobileControls.ChtmlTabbedPanelAdapter,Portal" />
    </device>
    <device name="PortalWmlDeviceAdapters" inheritsFrom="WmlDeviceAdapters">
        <control name="ASPNetPortal.MobileControls.TabbedPanel, Portal" adapter="ASPNetPortal.MobileControls.WmlTabbedPanelAdapter,Portal" />
