Summary

I now have the basic site structure and layout defined for the sample site I am going to use to build my data samples.  It has a consistent, centralized, layout and look and feel structure by using the new ASP.NET 2.0 Master Page feature.  And my site and link structure is nicely encapsulated by the ASP.NET 2.0 Site Navigation system, which I’m also using to dynamically generate a navigation menu and breadcrumb UI for the site:

Figure 13

<img border=0 width=662 height=453src="/ArticleFiles/916/image013.jpg">

Best of all, I didn’t need to write any code to enable this, and I still get full WYSIWYG designer support within Visual Web Developer.

Hope this helps.  Lots of data samples are now going to follow…

Scott

Scott -

Many thanks, this is exactly what I was looking for with the second level repeater nav structure. It would be nice if "the soft" would make their examples half this good!

Thanks Scott. This tutorial gives a good basic understanding of the navigation features. If you have written any detailed articles on the same, can you link them on this page?

Scott Gives a great example of converting a sitemap datasource to a bulleted list in this article. However, a code substitution he provided for use in C# does not work. In Visual Studio 2005, I am given the error message, 'System.Web.SiteMapNode.ChildNodes' is a 'property' but is used like a 'method'. Is there a better way to do this?
