    Good WAP Emulator?

    Advertisement



    I need a website that emulates how a site I develop for a PC will look on my blackberry browser. If there are none -- how about PC based software that doesn't cost an arm and leg. Any help out there? Hurry-I'm desperate!

    I'm not sure if this will do what you want, but you might try downloading the 8703 Simulator from the BlackBerry Simulators Page.

    Hope this helps

    I downlaoded and will study it, but my impressionis that it will take quite a bit of time for me to learn.

    I was hoping that there was a website out there where I could type in my website and then see what it will lokk like on a handdeld screen, so that I could make adjustments using the "guess and check method" of website development.

    Why not just use your own BB and look at your site ????

    Upload the page live, view it on your BB, make adjustments, upload it, view it on your BB, etc.....

    I do that all the time for my site.

    'cause someone else that doesn't have a BB is doing the development work for me. They have the pdf-MSsql expertise to create an fdf-pdfform merge on my host company's server and auto-email the end results to my BB (where I use Repligo to view it) while at the same time populating the MSsql database at my hosting company. The last part of the process is a webpage whereby I can modify the database from my BB and cause it to auto-send the new pdfs based upon the modifications. We got it all to work, but it needs a fair amount of formatting tweaks and it would help if the developer could see what I see on my BB. The Simulator from Blackberry looked like the answer and installed easily on my PC, but I can't figure out how to get it to use my internet connection to browse the web through the simulator.

    This gives a sense of what a page will look like on the "small screen", but it essentially does the same thing as dragging your PC's browser window down to a small size and removing the scroll bar feature. Aw--Maaann! Thanks, Len ,for trying
