Web application for BB Browser


I'm a newbie in BB Browser world.

I'm developing an asp.net web application for BB browser.

But some function on rendered page doesn't work.

Do you recommend me to use any standard of html, css and javascript, which is guaranteed run well on BB browser?

Thank you in advance.

Re: Web application for BB Browser

you'd better read the documentation about the BlackBerry Browser. Click on the "DEVELOPERS" button on top^of this page. you'll find a very big PDF file that details exactly what javascript method you can use, as well as the CSS properties allowed and so on.

you can always validate the HTML part using http://validator.w3.org/ .
there is one for CSS too Smiley Happy

The search box on top-right of this page is your true friend, and the public Knowledge Base too:

For browser versions through BlackBerry Devlce Software 4.3 RIM published a Browser Content Developers Guide that provides the do's and don't's of browser development for BlackBerry. You can find it in the documentation area of the site.

Re: Web application for BB Browser

Thank you both of you.

I have found documentation, as you recommeded.

Once more small question. why i can set width and border color of input control (TextBox and DropDownList), although these html tags and css style is supported. And in my simulator broser my web page look seem okay, but it is broken when look in my client's device, although they are the same 8310 version.

Any comment is much appriciated.
