Forms Data Controls :: Easiest Way To Build XML Based Menu With Submenu
Sep 2, 2010
I need to develop an easy and quickly to build menu structure based on xml. The menu needs to have a "Main" menu at top of the screen and a submenu at the left of the screen. Excactly like this: [URL] where i need to get started and wich control i should use?
I have a selection list that is generated dynamically, it lists a number of checkboxes that are based on an end-user editable table, as such I have no idea what data, or how much, might be contained in this table and how many checkboxes or what they might contain, other than the primary keys of the table. The user will select the checks they wish to see, and then control is passed to another page via PostBackUrl. The second page has to figure out which records to show (build it's where clause) based on the checkboxes checked in the previous page.
So, my problem is several-fold. First, asp:CheckBoxes don't have values. This can be worked around by a number of methods. Right now, i'm using a placeholder and dynamically creating the checkboxes in the ItemDataBound event of the DataList. I set the ID to "CheckboxKey1Key2" (where Key1 and Key2 are the primary keys of the check items). Second, I have to walk through the controls of the PreviousPage to dig out all these values. That in itself is also a pain, but doable. Now, my thinking is to build the where clause of my Linq2Sql query based on the keys I got from decoding the checked checkbox names. This all seems like a lot of jumping through hoops for something that shouldn't be this difficult. Am I missing something? Does anyone have any better solutions?
I am working on a website at the moment, I am using .NET 4 and VB. My site is contained within a Master Page and all working OK. I am using an ASP:MENU control which is driven by a web.sitemap file and works a treat. I have had an idea of something I would like to know but I am struggling to get it going correctly (not sure if it is even possible) What I am after doing is having the main categories of my website across the top horizonally (this part is no problem) and the sub menu items going vertically but down the left side of the page such as:
Logo Here Menu Head 1 Menu Head 2 Menu Head 3 Sub Menu Head 1 Sub Menu Head 2 Sub Menu Head 3
Does anyone have any idea if such a thing is possible or not?
I have for example a ASP Menu control having a static (File) and dynamic (Open, New) menu such as :
I am able to see this menu under VS 2008 under my development PC. But when I deploy the app to a IIS server, and run the app, the whole app appeared the same. Only the Menu has "File" for selection but the submenu items (Open and New) did not appear when the mouse cursor was moved over "File". Only the Outline of the dropdown box of the submenu appeared.
i have a menu, what i want is that when i click on parent item of menu then only subitem should display,mean i dont want to display subitem on mouseover. what should i do.Is there any property should i set or i have to write code for it .
I have a problem with my visual studio 2008 for my ASP.NET application on one PC (HP with Windows XP). The Dynamic submenu items are not visible when mouse over a menu. The same application works fine on another PC. It worked fine on the same PC 4 months ago. In recent 4 months, my PC had some updates, like windows XP updates, Visual studio 2008 updates, flash update, adobe update, and iTunes update. After I noticed the problem, I had tried to uninstall the all updates except windows XP updates; and tried to uninstall Visual Studio 2008 completely; then re-install it again.
I am knew to CSS I never usually do it. I am creating a menu and I change the image of the button when the button is hovered over it. But when I go on the submenu the image reverts back to the original image. The code I have used is below.
I am using asp.net2.0 , C#. I am binding menu control with sitemap to display menus and submenues. Which also restrict access and display of menu or submenu based on user's roles. I want to know Is it Possible to show/ Hide submenu based on sql tables with existing sitemap method
I hv created menu using sitemap xmldatasource now i want to display that based on Category or Roles. I have Created 4 Category in my sql Server 2005. when particular user logged in based on his Category menu nodes should display.
I got requirement to create a accordion menu which will have different menus for different site collection. So, i created this Accordion which is in bind with site map file. But my Sitemap file has multi-level nodes, here my accordion is displaying only single level menus.
i have this situation: i have to build a menu with datasource from the db, because i have to filter them among the user that is loged in. i have tried building a menu using repeater, and all this works fine till i realized that i wanted the menu with more than two levels. i have also tried with treeview, but i really don't want this solution (problem with the style and the treeview doesn't have a pretty view).
I have left menu navigation which is a datagrid. They are linkbuttons. When clicking it, it will display related data based on the value passed from the link. But if the passed value is a specific value, it is not displayed data in the right pane; instead, it will displayed a submenu of the link.
I was looking to build a Data Access Layer for my new web based application, I'm using ASP.NET. I'm want to build a framework not only for this application but also want to utilize it for my future projects.
Actually my main aim is to make a framework, from DAC, DAL, BL to GUI. I want suggestions from you guys that what should i adopt, what give me flexibility, which suits for both small and large size applications.
