The second part of this QuickStart tutorial continues where Part 1 left off. It focuses on using an external XML file as its page source. You will learn how to generate a dynamic dropdown list for the combo box from the data in the XML file, how to create dynamic links to website pages, and how to save data back to the XML file.
This tutorial is organized into the following sections, each of which deals with one key aspect of creating a MobileTogether design.
