Tip/Trick: Using Mobile Web Forms with Web Application Projects

Web Development Tools Microsoft

Hopefully, people reading this post are familiar with the “Web Application Projects” feature that was added to Visual Studio 2005 in Service Pack 1.  If you are using Web Application Projects, you might have noticed that it doesn’t have item templates for ASP.NET Mobile Web Forms (which were previously available in Visual Studio 2003).  

To help users with this scenario, I’ve created the following item templates for Web Application Projects in VB and C#:

  • Mobile Web Form
  • Mobile Web User Control
  • Mobile Web Configuration File

Once installed, these templates enable users to create and edit new ASP.NET Mobile Web Forms using Web Application Projects, similar to how one could in Visual Studio 2003.

To install these templates download the attachment included in this post, and follow the instructions in the included readme.txt file. 

Once you have installed the templates you should see the following items in the “Add New Item” dialog:


Hopefully folks doing Mobile Web Forms development will find this useful!
