Parameters

provider
SiteMapProvider SiteMapProvider SiteMapProvider SiteMapProvider

The SiteMapProvider with which the node is associated.

Remarks

The XmlSiteMapProvider class, which is the default SiteMapProvider provider implementation for ASP.NET, uses the SiteMapNode.Url property as a lookup key, if one is provided for the node (if a URL is not provided, a tracking identifier is generated for the node). Therefore, any SiteMapNode control that provides a URL and is used by the XmlSiteMapProvider must have a unique URL within the scope of the provider.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the SiteMapNodeCollection constructor to create a new SiteMapNodeCollection collection, and then add elements to it with the Add method.

// The LoadSiteMapData() method loads site navigation
// data from persistent storage into a DataTable.
DataTable siteMap = LoadSiteMapData();

// Create a SiteMapNodeCollection.
SiteMapNodeCollection nodes = new SiteMapNodeCollection();

// Create a SiteMapNode and add it to the collection.
SiteMapNode tempNode;
DataRow row;
int index = 0;

while (index < siteMap.Rows.Count)
{

    row = siteMap.Rows[index];

    // Create a node based on the data in the DataRow.
    tempNode = new SiteMapNode(SiteMap.Provider,
                                row["Key"].ToString(),
                                row["Url"].ToString());

    // Add the node to the collection.
    nodes.Add(tempNode);
    ++index;
}
' The LoadSiteMapData() Function loads site navigation
' data from persistent storage into a DataTable.

Dim siteMapData As DataTable
siteMapData = LoadSiteMapData()

' Create a SiteMapNodeCollection.
Dim nodes As New SiteMapNodeCollection()

' Create a SiteMapNode and add it to the collection.
Dim tempNode As SiteMapNode
Dim row As DataRow
Dim index As Integer
index = 0

While (index < siteMapData.Rows.Count)

    row = siteMapData.Rows(index)

    ' Create a node based on the data in the DataRow.
    tempNode = New SiteMapNode(SiteMap.Provider, row("Key").ToString(), row("Url").ToString())

    ' Add the node to the collection.
    nodes.Add(tempNode)
    index = index + 1
End While

Remarks

The XmlSiteMapProvider class, which is the default SiteMapProvider provider implementation for ASP.NET, uses the SiteMapNode.Url property as a lookup key, if one is provided for the node (if a URL is not provided, a tracking identifier is generated for the node). Therefore, any SiteMapNode object that provides a URL and is used by the XmlSiteMapProvider must have a unique URL within the scope of the provider.

Remarks

The XmlSiteMapProvider class, which is the default SiteMapProvider provider implementation for ASP.NET, uses the SiteMapNode.Url property as a lookup key, if one is provided for the node (if a URL is not provided, a tracking identifier is generated for the node). Therefore, any SiteMapNode object that provides a URL and is used by the XmlSiteMapProvider must have a unique URL within the scope of the provider.

If no title is provided, calls to the Title property return the String.Empty field.

A label for the node, often displayed by navigation controls.

description

A description of the page that the node represents.

roles
IList IList IList IList

An IList of roles that are allowed to view the page represented by the SiteMapNode.

Remarks

The XmlSiteMapProvider class, which is the default SiteMapProvider provider implementation for ASP.NET, uses the SiteMapNode.Url property as a lookup key, if one is provided for the node (if a URL is not provided, a tracking identifier is generated for the node). Therefore, any SiteMapNode object that provides a URL and is used by the XmlSiteMapProvider must have a unique URL within the scope of the provider.

The NameValueCollection collection of attributes that the SiteMapNode is created with is available through the Attributes property, and makes it easy to apply additional attributes to a site map node and extend its capabilities without deriving a custom class to do so.

Supply an IList collection of roles to provide a set of roles that can view the node when the SecurityTrimmingEnabled property returns true. For more information, see SecurityTrimmingEnabled.

The XmlSiteMapProvider provider uses the SiteMapNode.Url property as a lookup key. Therefore, any SiteMapNode that is used by the XmlSiteMapProvider must have a unique URL within the scope of the provider.

If no title or description is provided, calls to the Title or Description properties return an String.Empty field.

To programmatically specify resources for localization, either set the value of implicitResourceKey to a unique name that will be used to identify localized resources for the node or set explicitResourceKeys to a NameValueCollection collection of name/value pairs where name is the node property or custom attribute to localize and value contains localization values for the node property or custom attribute. The localized values can then be set in the appropriate .resx files. For more information about how to localize the Title, Description, and any custom properties of a SiteMapNode object, see How to: Localize Site-Map Data. For the syntax requirements of the explicitResourceKeys collection, see NameValueCollection.
