Hi,

A quick question if someone is familar with this...

I know that if i want to develop for a surfaceRT tablet I have to use xaml with c#/vb.net....or JS.

But can I build a normal .NET web application and put it on a surfacePro tablet (I presume surfacePro has IIS) and will it run like a normal surface app i.e. the user can touch enter text? Or does the app have to be in a diffferent format than traditional asp.net to allow touch screen.

Thanks...

Yes, It looks like IIS can be installed on the Surface Pro. A normal asp.net webpage will behave just like any other web page when viewed through a browser. I don't know what you mean by "like a normal surface app". It won't be an app, it will be a webpage, viewed through a web browser and behave like any other webpage viewed through a web browser. It will have the same touch support as any webpage viewed through a browser. If you want to make a Windows Store App, XAML is your only option.

I believe you can build a Windows Store App with HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. It wouldn't be hosted in IIS though, it would install and run 'natively' like any other app from the store.
