ASP.NET - C# - Windows Mobile Development and Database...a quick and simple question.

Discussion in 'C#' started by GAdsense, Mar 19, 2010.

    I've made a Windows Mobile 6 application, nothing rocket science in there. But am new to ASP.NET.

    What am I trying to achieve? Glad, you asked.
    Well, i want my windows mobile app to send some data and store it to a database using C# on internet.
    So that from website, I can access the data sent from the smart phone.

    What are the cycles of work i have to go through? Let's suppose we have a textbox and the users enters the data and I'd like to sent it to the database.
    SEMrush
    What I am confused at? How will exactly the connection to database in Mobile Application will work?
    Besides, how to setup the database online using ASP.NET.

    Hope that makes sense.

    I guess you should try to search some more ideas in Google.
    You can get lot's of information there.
    But I am interested also in ASP.NET.

    Well, you are absolutely right carfanatic. And am glad to hear your response.

    Yes, I've been searching google since long trying to figure out a lot of other things too. And I did learn a couple of thing. But this one, I was having a little problem to understand....and don't you think my friend that forums are actually for discussing and learning through others experiences.

    That's what i really think ...... am sure, eventually it will help thousands of other people in coming days.

    But thank you, i'd be glad to hear anyone who knows the stuff.

    You need an asp.net script stored on the server that your mobile application can POST the data to, over HTTP. This script would then store the posted data into the database and return a result ('success' or 'fail').
    You would probably want to also send a password along with the data, that the remote script can then verify before storing the data. This is a fairly simple process:
    For more information on how to post data to a remote URL the objects you are interested in are HttpWebRequest and HttpWebResponse ... it is fairly easy to find the code you are looking for through google, but if further help is needed then I'll provide more assistance.

    p.s: the mentioned objects belong to the System.Net namespace so you will have to import that for quick reference to them.

    I have to make an app for a device running windows mobile 6. I need a small, easy to use database engine or even a flat file database.
