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.


Load Data from a File

Change Source Node

Run a Simulation

Use File Data for Combo Box Entries

Set Data File as Default File

Create Dynamic Links to Web Pages

Save Data Back to File


The tutorial files

The files for this tutorial are located in your (My) Documents MobileTogether folder: MobileTogetherDesignerExamples\Tutorials\QuickStart. The Tutorials folder also contains the splash screen images referred to in the tutorial. You can save these images and the XML file to any other location and use them from there if you like.


The file to start with is the file you created in Part 1. Alternatively, you can use the supplied design file, QuickStart01.mtd

The file you will end with should be similar to QuickStart02.mtd

The XML data file is AltovaProducts.xml
