public DeviceSpecificChoiceCollection Choices { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.MobileControls.DeviceSpecificChoiceCollection

The collection of choices in a <DeviceSpecific> element.

At run time, the choices in the collection are evaluated in the order that they are stored. For more information about choice and device-specific concepts, see the <Choice> element.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the Choices property to display the number of templates contained in the first filter defined in the ASP.NET mobile Web application. For a more complete code sample, see the example for the DeviceSpecific overview.


The following code sample uses the single-file code model and may not work correctly if copied directly into a code-behind file. This code sample must be copied into an empty text file that has an .aspx extension. For more information, see ASP.NET Web Forms Page Code Model.

public void Page_Load(Object source, EventArgs e)
    if (Panel1.IsTemplated)
        string txt = "Loaded panel has {0} Templates for a Filter named {1}.";
        Label1.Text = 
        Label1.Text = "Loaded panel does not have Templates";
