Consider the following scenerio. You run a .NET Compact Framework 3.5-based
application on a Windows
Mobile device or on a Windows Mobile device emulator. This application hosts
control. Then, the application loads an HTML page that contains multiple links.
In this scenerio, you experience the following issues:
- You cannot scroll
through the links by using the Navigation button. Instead, you are able to unexpectedly move the entire Web page you visit.
- When you press the Command
button, you cannot open a specified link.
This problem occurs in Windows Mobile 6.1.4 and in Windows Mobile
Windows Mobile 6.5, the
horizontal and vertical scroll bars do not appear.
This problem is caused by a wrapper around the Shdocvw.dll file. You notice this problem when you use the System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser
control in the .NET Compact Framework 3.5.
