We have to develop an application which has a Vertical left pane menu control which displays all the web pages (A,B,C say). Now if user is in page A and filled some data and clicks on menu control to go to page B, all the data in page A needs to be saved. Also if all the required field in page A are not filled and user navigated to page B, there will be one ! sign after the menu so that user can understand that there some some more fields need to be filled up.
We are planning to place the menu control in the Mater page. Please give me some direction to do this. My question is:
1. If user change menu (In Master Page), how should we save data?
2. How should we display the ! in the menu control?
I hate tables - don't want to use tables, unless I have tabular data to display. A menu is not tabular data (as far as I am concerned.) I was elated to see that in asp.net 4 - the menu control renders as a <ul> <li>, instead of as a table. However - try as I might, I can not get a horizontally orientated Menu to split into even columns, and text align center. FYI - I don't use fixed width - so I can't just set a width to 1000 - and separate it into even columns. Besides that, I want it to change width dynamically, based on the number of "columns (menuItems)" there are. Is it possible to spread out the <li> menu items evenly across the space I provide for them in their containing div or will I have to quite using menu controls, and start using JQuery Menu's?
I am using the ASP.Net menu control to load the menu items defined in a DB table. The menu items are arranged in the order defined and made visible according to the role settings given. This means that a particular person logging into the system can view only those menus that were given access rights to the role that person represents.
The present control just displays in a horizontal or vertical fashion on hover state. However I would like to customize it so that it appears in a fashion similar to those appearing in the Office 2007 package. ie, if we select Home, we can see all the items under home displayed just below it. This is always displayed until you change the menu item, say to Insert.
Is this possible with the ASP.Net menu control? If it is not, is there any other way I can achieve it. In any case, the menu items must be visible strictly based on the role access settings defined in the DB.
The div is buried in nested iFrames and Framesets and all sorts of nasty looking stuff.
I have a page with a data repeater. Each row has a dropdownlist for the user to select a value and the values in every dropdown are the same. I also have an SqlDataSource which each dropdownlist gets its values from as its created. Everything is working as it should but for each dropdown that is rendered a seperate call is made to the database.
suggest a better way for me to do this that means only one call to the database for all dropdowns rendered?
Is there a way to add/delete/update the default classes (for instance AspNet-Menu-WithChildren,AspNet-Menu-NonLink ) of the html generated by the asp.net menu or treeview control? I am using CSSAdapters so the menu control renders in a list format instead of table format.
I am trying to style the menu control to allow the menu items to float to the right of the container, however I am unable to do so as whenever I am styling the a, ul or li it keeps getting overidded by asp.net and floats everything left.
I know that the code depicted below will not work but I am including it to convey the idea of what I wish to accomplish. I want to use a different SiteMap to construct the menu on the displayed page for each of three different classes of service (COS).
I set a session variable named "COS" at the login and want to test its value prior to rendering each page. I want to display a menu based upon the appropriate COS. Here is my first stab at it but I know that I cannot include <asp:...> controls within the "case" statements. Can anyone suggest methods of doing this? I know C# and can use that but I do not know how to select the proper sitemap within the <menu> control. I am also using a CSS in my production version.
I am using frames in my webpage.in one of the frames i have a menu control whose items are database driven.when click on the menu item, i want another page to be displayed in other frame.
now i want to pass the the selected menu item text to the other page using session variable which is in the menu item click event method.but the thing is when i click on the menu item, the click event is not firing.
is there any better way to pass the selected menu item text to the other page?
