Web user control that simulates a PDA browser

Introduction

In May 2007, I developed a Pocket PC Simulated Browser for window-based application. My original intention was to give better user experience for me to develop a PDA version of my web-based CRM project. My CRM project is now nearly completed. I find that it is necessary to write similar PDA Browser which can be run on browser so that clients can see the PDA demo on the web.

Using the code

With the introduction of Ajax technology in .Net Framework 3.5, coding a browser control is not difficult. Essentially, I use Iframe, Ajax and CSS style sheet to write this code. Please feel free to see the simple logic in my code. If you want to see a real-life version, please go to: http://www.biswaretech.com/pdaBrowser.aspx

Theorecically, the same code without Ajax should also work. However, without Ajax, the entire screen will refresh for every button click on the control's address bar. This does not provide the simulated browser with similar user experience as that of the actual Pocket PC browser. Ajax can make the screen background very stable and thus provide a better user experience.
