QuickStart (Part 1)

This QuickStart tutorial guides you through the basic steps of creating a MobileTogether design for a MobileTogether solution. The solution displays the splash screen of an Altova product which the end user selects in a combo box. The tutorial shows you how to set up a page, its page sources, how to add controls, and make the display of the splash screen conditional upon end-user input. It also explains validation, how to deploy the design file to MobileTogether Server, and how to run simulations. After you have finished with this QuickStart tutorial, you should have a good understanding of the broad working principles of MobileTogether designs. You will then be ready to tackle more complex designs.
