Device extensibility l.jpg
Device Extensibility

  • Extend the machine.config schema for tracking device capabilities in ASP.NET

  • Store information:

    • Device type

    • Display information

    • Browser versions

    • Rendering details

    • Device capabilities

    • Gateway information


<!-- Pocket IE for Pocket PC -->

<case match="Mozilla/.* \(compatible; MSIE 3.02;

Windows CE;(?'deviceID' \w*;)*


type = "Pocket IE"

browser = "Pocket IE"

javaapplets = "false"

javascript = "true"

vbscript = "false"

tables = "true"
