How to: Open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet or Phone Client from a Browser

You can open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client or the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client by using a browser from a device that has a network connection. Opening the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client or the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client in a browser can, for example, make it easier to test your solution during the design phase. You must know the name of the computer that is running the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components and the HTTP port that it is running on to be able to open the client in a browser.

Important

In early versions of Internet Explorer 11, prior to and 11.0.9600.16476, an issue with hardware acceleration can occur when the browser zoom is not set to 100%. This can cause some elements of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client or Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client UI being rendered incorrectly. For example, the action pane appears displaced horizontally.

Important

The procedure in this article illustrates how you can open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client in a browser. The syntax and options for opening Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client in a browser are the same; just replace tablet.aspx with phone.aspx in the examples later in this section.
