For example, if you are using a mobile phone for accessing the application the configuration of your application will change according to that device.

For creating a device map configuration, you can first select the device type to which you are going to create configuration. Then select the device sub type like small, large, medium etc. Then select the device name. Now you can select the App behavior which is compatible for the device type selected. Here you can select Skin, Layout, Portal page etc which will be suitable for the device to which the App is configured to. On control dimension tab you can give the default control width, control height etc. There you will get an option to put the label on top of the App. Save the configuration.
Then you need to select user preference settings and select the Web Designer general node. There you have to select the client device profile mapping.
