Does IE Mobile Support AJAX? … YES
We’ve recently been getting questions regarding whether IE Mobile (aka Pocket IE, PIE, IEMO) supports AJAX. The answer: Yes, PocketPC and Smartphone devices 2003 and later, support AJAX.
If you are wondering how you can use AJAX on your website and have it function well from your Windows Mobile browser, here are a couple things you should know:
- On Smartphone/PocketPC 2003
- innerText and innerHTML Properties are only supported on div and span elements
- Form elements are scriptable as well
- On Windows Mobile 5
- innerText and innerHTML Properties are supported on all elements
- In addition there is support for document.all and the style object
Watch the IE Mobile Team blog for further details on our DOM support.
