Non "mobile" controls on Mobile ASPX

Hi. I have Mobile site that I'm building. My problem is that all of my pages
are built as Mobile ASPX pages, but occasionally, I need to use controls
which are not mobile. Most specifically, the "FileUpload" control. Now, most
phones don't support this feature, but some do and for them I need to place
and use this control. How can I insert a FileUpload control on a Mobile ASPX?

Hi Alex,

Regarding on the non-mobile controls(ASP.NET standard controls), they
should be used in sepefic DeviceSpecifc template. So if your mobile
application's target client support HTML, you can define a certain
deviceSpecific/choice template for it.e.g.

the following "IsIE" template use those ASP.NET standard controls while
"IsNotIE" use mobile controls:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<mobile:Form id="Form1" runat="server">

<mobile:DeviceSpecific ID="dshtml" Runat="server">
<Choice Filter="IsIE"
<asp:Label ID="Label2" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label>
<hr />
<asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload1" runat="server" />
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" />
<hr />
<Choice Filter="IsNotIE">
<mobile:Label ID="Label1"
<mobile:TextBox ID="TextBox1" Runat="server">
<mobile:Command ID="Command1"
BTW, I have also posted some information about configure and use
deviceSpecific template in ASP.NET mobile page in your another thread below:
