public DeviceSpecificChoice SelectedChoice { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.MobileControls.DeviceSpecificChoice

The currently selected choice.

You can use a DeviceSpecific/Choice construct to specify device-specific content, such as property overrides or templates, for a control or style. To select a choice from the choices in a <DeviceSpecific> element, ASP.NET evaluates each choice in sequential order against the capabilities of the target device. The first matching choice is made the selected choice, and is used for device-specific content.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the SelectedChoice property to display the filter associated with the current choice. For a more complete code sample, see the example for the DeviceSpecific overview.

public void Page_Load(object source, EventArgs e)
    if (!IsPostBack)
        string txt = "Selected Filter is {0}";
        Label1.Text = String.Format(txt,
