DeviceFilterElement Class

Note: This API is now obsolete.

Represents a device-specific filter to be applied to the application. For information about how to develop ASP.NET mobile applications, see the www.asp.net/mobile Web site.

Namespace:  System.Web.Mobile
Assembly:  System.Web.Mobile (in System.Web.Mobile.dll)
[ObsoleteAttribute("The System.Web.Mobile.dll assembly has been deprecated and should no longer be used. For information about how to develop ASP.NET mobile applications, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=157231.")]
public sealed class DeviceFilterElement : ConfigurationElement

The DeviceFilterElement type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodDeviceFilterElement(String, String, String)Initializes a new instance of the DeviceFilterElement class as a comparison filter. This API is obsolete. For information about how to develop ASP.NET mobile applications, see the www.asp.net/mobile Web site.
Public methodDeviceFilterElement(String, Type, String)Initializes a new instance of the DeviceFilterElement class as an evaluator filter. This API is obsolete. For information about how to develop ASP.NET mobile applications, see the www.asp.net/mobile Web site.

Public propertyLockElementsGets the collection of locked elements. (Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)
Public propertyLockItemGets or sets a value indicating whether the element is locked. (Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)
Public propertyMethodGets or sets the method in the class specified by the FilterClass property that is used as the evaluator delegate. This API is obsolete. For information about how to develop ASP.NET mobile applications, see the www.asp.net/mobile Web site.
Public propertyNameGets the name by which the evaluator will be identified. This API is obsolete. For information about how to develop ASP.NET mobile applications, see the www.asp.net/mobile Web site.

This class corresponds to the <filter> element for the <deviceFilters> section of the ASP.NET settings schema.

A filter can be either a comparison filter or an evaluator filter. Comparison-based filters compare a value specified by the developer to the current value of a device capability at run time. The evaluator (or delegate-based) filter uses a method from a programmer-specified class to perform the evaluation.
