    Let me start by saying I'm new to asp and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm developing a mobile site for my company. Ideally I would like to detect the users browser and if its a handheld device change the the master page to a mobile friendly version. I've come up with this browser detection script and placed it in the Page_Load event of the codebehind page:

    string strUserAgent = Request.UserAgent.ToString().ToLower();
    if (strUserAgent != null)
    if (Request.Browser.IsMobileDevice == true ||
    strUserAgent.Contains("iphone") ||
    strUserAgent.Contains ("blackberry") ||
    strUserAgent.Contains("mobile") ||
    strUserAgent.Contains("windows ce") ||
    strUserAgent.Contains("opera mini") ||



    Currently the script redirects to there any way to change the master page instead?

    I tried using:

    this.MasterPageFile = "~/mobile/DefaultMobile.master";

    ...but no luck :(

    Thanks in Advance!
