NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodFindDataSourceControl()

Returns the data source that is associated with the data control for the specified control.(Defined by DynamicDataExtensions.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodFindFieldTemplate(String)

Returns the field template for the specified column in the specified control's naming container.(Defined by DynamicDataExtensions.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodFindMetaTable()

Returns the metatable object for the containing data control.(Defined by DynamicDataExtensions.)

A form represents the outermost grouping of controls within an ASP.NET mobile Web page. An individual mobile Web page can contain multiple forms at the outermost level. Forms cannot be nested; use Panel controls if you want to nest containers. For more information, see Introduction to the Form Control. To display a specific form, either set the ActiveForm property on the current page to the desired form, or set the NavigateUrl property in a Link control to the desired form. You can include literal text along with its accompanying markup tags in the text contents of the Form control. When using templates, it is important to remember that the Form control creates instances of templates in the OnInit method for the form. The OnInit method for the form is called before Page_Load and Page_Init. Also, the page constructor executes too early to set templates in the OnInit method because the form is not yet created. To correct this, hook the form's own OnInit method, and create an instance of the template there. For more information, see Implementing Templated Rendering.

The following code example shows how to create a page with two forms along with links between the two forms. One form has a check box list. When items are selected and the Submit button is clicked, the form presents a list of the selected items and their values. Notice that the Activate event methods prepare the respective forms for display
