how to automatically turn on the javascript support option ?



I want the blackberry user can be redirect to a mobi version of the website automatically.


I can use the navigator.platform in Javascript supported by the browser on Blackberry to check the planform then redirect to the respective websites.


The thing is the default option for Javascript supporting is off, so that my javascript in the html file won't work.


How can I do to turn on the javascript supporting option programatically ? or any other ways to walk around this ?

Re: how to automatically turn on the javascript support option ?

the best way is to do the redirection on the server side. If you use PHP/Java/C# then there are many tutorials.

the idea is to get the user-agent of the browser, and do an http-redirect if it's a mobile device.

that way, you do what you want, whatever the javascript configuration on the handheld device is.

Keep in mind though that users can change the Browser Identification and your check to see if it's a BlackBerry using User-Agent won't work in that case. You will want to check the Profile header and parse the RDF URL to determine the device model.
