the menu control in ASP.NET

To use sitemap file as the datasource for the the horizontal menu control,

  1. Put the SiteMapDataSource into the aspx page.
  2. Drag the menu control to the aspx page.
  3. Change its datasource to the SiteMapDataSource.
  4. Change the Orientation property of the menu to Horizontal.
  5. Change the StaticDisplayLevels property to 2, so that it will display the first 2 levels of the SiteMap. Default is one which is useless in my opinion if you are using a SiteMap file because it only shows the “Home” button or the first node in your SiteMap file.
