make up an application. These pages are downloaded onto the
PDA via M-Business Connect. Thereafter the application runs
entirely off-line as all the pages are stored on the PDA. We
have recently added a hyperlink to one of these pages - this
Client to go online and then opens a website.
How do we add a link to our (online) website which, when
clicked will navigate to one of the pages stored on the PDA?
For example, on a page named list.aspx (that was downloaded
to the PDA via M-Business Connect), there is a link that
takes us to our website...
If the user taps that link, assuming the device is online,
the user will be taken to the welcome page of our website.
Does anyone know how I can craft a link that takes me back
to list.aspx stored on the PDA?
<a href="list.aspx">Back to the
...takes me to "http://www.ourwebsite.co.uk/list.aspx",
which is not what we want.

For the page that is already on the device, what URL was used to crawl that
page. If it is different from above then you need to change the link to match

I don't think you can access the offline pages while you are in online mode.
switches to offline mode and then navigates to the URL.
