Controls You Can Use on Web Forms Pages

Visual Studio .NET 2003

This section discusses what you can do with each of the Web server controls available in Visual Studio. If you want to use HTML server controls in your application, see HTML Server Controls.

Note   You can also create output for mobile devices. To do so, you use the same ASP.NET page framework, but you create Mobile Web Forms instead of Web Forms pages and use controls specifically designed for mobile devices. For details, see Creating ASP.NET Mobile Web Applications.
