    How would I go about making an application for browsing a mobile website, much like the unofficial precentral application? I will be using Palm Ares for this project. Thank you.

    just browsing is easy..

    start with a scroller and maximize it
    next get the web widget and drop it in the scroller , input the url and you're set...

    im not sure the rest off hand but that should get you started

    I do this, and add the url into the properties. However, when the application is loaded the web page is not.

    Here's a simple tutorial with source code on using

    1) 1st scene: List to push the url of the mobile site
    2) 2nd scene: Webview widget to display the url

    all done in Ares

    I actually did this to put the google tasks mobile web site in it's own app (so that back wouldn't go back to bookmarks). If I recall I had to set "interrogate links" or whatever it was called to false for that to work right. Didn't load anything until then.

    Yes, if one leaves the Interrogate links for the webView widget checked, then one has to code listeners e.g. for url link taps.

    No need. I only am aware of the need to execute for the webService plugin, not the webView widget, which only needs a url.
