Web Forms :: Navigation Menu Control Horizontal - Multiline?
Jan 7, 2010
I've built a website with a Horizontal Menubar at the the top of the site, it works fine the only problem is now that i have added more items to the website map it has now grown wider than the site, so what i would like it to do is when it gets to a certain width drop down and start adding the node links underneath. i tried setting the width property of the <asp:menu> but this did not seem to do anything at all. I could obviously add a second menubar linking to another sitemap but i would like to be as dynamic as posssible. Plus the menu is baseed around the role structure so some users may only see 5 items where admins, supervisors etc may see around 30 level 1 menu items with multiple subitems. so in short how to i make the menu wrap round to the next line when a certain length is reached
For the ASP.NET Menu Server Control whose RenderMode is set to "List", there is an "Orientation" property which decides whether the menu would render as a horizontal or a vertical menu. I have compared the two HTML source code and was unable to find out which part of the HTML/CSS code set the orientation of the menu(unordered list).
Using an ASP.NET 3.5 menu control set to horizontal, is there a way to specify that only a certain node of the menu displays? For example, let's say I have a vertical menu on the left side of the master page that is tied to a sitemap and displays these nodes. The submenus would be dynamic and only display when the root node is hovered.
Main Page Second Page Sub Menu 1 Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Sub Menu 2 Page 1 Page 2 Page 3
A certain (powerful) group of my users will always be going straight to the pages in Sub Menu 1 and pretty much never touching the other pages. They would like a sub-master page that is based on the parent master page so that the primary vertical menu and the sitemappath are all still there but the sub-master page will contain a horizontal menu control that only displays the the Sub Menu 1 node, like this:
Sub Menu 1 Page 1 Page 2 Page 3
Is there a way to set up the menu control to start displaying at a certain node level so the parent nodes and sibling nodes aren't displayed or would this require maintaining a separate sitemap file? I hope this makes sense.
I am a student and .net freshers.I have been working on a website using asp.net and has used menu control in it.it has various sections like home,about us ,customer care and i have set navigate url for each menu parts and submenus .but it is not navigating to respective pages while it is opened in browser. I have seen sitemap usage and iE8 compatiblity articles does it needs to be done ...cant it workout just by setting navigate url in property of menu?
My menu control is in horizotal style and i want to show it's dynamic item also in horizontal style too, by default they are vertical. Plus the arrow(Static pop-out image) to be shown vertical rather horizotal which is by default. How to do that ?
How to get rid-off ToolTip showing when people hover over menu items in asp:menu navigation control? The ToolTip itself covers pop-out sub-menu and very irritating. ToolTip actually displays "description" from Web.sitemap. I thought to delete "description", but that would be nice to have for asp:SiteMapPath.
In classic ASP I would write some logic to get a nice menu on the site, but now with the Menu-control, it's as easy as it gets.. Maybe to easy. I can't quite figure out how I would do this.. I have a multilevel navigation structure (from a database) that I want to put into the Menu-control, but I don't know which approach is the best/easiest way for me..
I'm all into performance, usability and all that.. The only thing I have really decided is that I want to use the Menu-control, I haven't decided what datasource I should use or how to style the individual links my way The data is coming from a database and is not supposed to be changed very often (maybe once or twice every month).. Thought of making an XML-sitemap, but also of making some sort of SQL-hookup.. I'm leaning towards the XML-sitemap because it wouldn't take long to generate the XML every time the navigation changes and that won't happen very often. The next issue is styling, how to do that? I have the neccesary css ready for the individual links, but I'm still unsure of how to get it to the Menu-control.. The css I have looks like below and in its current form is intended just for the anchors
1) I have a menu control which is using a SiteMapDataSource. This is bound to a .sitemap file. I have the orientation property set to horizontal, but for some strange reason it still displays vertical. I can't for the life of me figure out why it's doing this. Am I doing something wrong here?
2) Is there a way to not display the root (Home) directory on my menu control? I only want to show Customer Support, Technician Support, Administration, and Site Map on the control.
i want to implement an accordion control to the left navigation menu. The Main title on left menu called Activities is standard so i have hard coded it. The subtitles I want to pull from the database , from the stored procedure "Activity_Get". however i am not able to achieve this because I get an error "DataSource 'sds2 ' for control 'accActivities' doesn't exist". The following is the aspx code.
I'm using asp.net and css to style a master page with navigation at the top. I was hoping to add the login status control in as a menu item but it is not allowed. Can someone point me in the right direction? When I post my code on this forum do I have to include tags?
I am porting an ASP.NET 2.0 project to VS 2010 and ASP.NET 4.0. I have the asp.menu set up to go horizontally across the top of my master page. This works pretty good, but I have a couple of pages that take a long time to load a lot of data (that is another issue though). The problem that I am having is that when these slow pages load the menu is initially vertical and then switches to horizontal. This looks so bad that I had initially thought that it was displaying my sitemap page. I just want it to draw properly (horizontal) to begin with.
Also, the content page has a script manager with CDNenable set to true.

I have a problem with some pages that take a long time to load data.

I have tried to change Orientation in MenuItemDataBound but no difference.
