SiteMapResolveEventHandler SiteMapResolveEventHandler SiteMapResolveEventHandler SiteMapResolveEventHandler Delegate

Definition

Represents the method that will handle the SiteMapResolve event of a specific instance of the SiteMapProvider or static SiteMap class.

public delegate System::Web::SiteMapNode ^ SiteMapResolveEventHandler(System::Object ^ sender, SiteMapResolveEventArgs ^ e);
public delegate System.Web.SiteMapNode SiteMapResolveEventHandler(object sender, SiteMapResolveEventArgs e);
type SiteMapResolveEventHandler = delegate of obj * SiteMapResolveEventArgs -> SiteMapNode
Public Delegate Function SiteMapResolveEventHandler(sender As Object, e As SiteMapResolveEventArgs) As SiteMapNode 

Parameters

sender
Object Object Object Object

The source of the event, an instance of the SiteMapProvider class.

Return Value

System.Web.SiteMapNode

The SiteMapNode that represents the result of the SiteMapResolveEventHandler operation.

Inheritance

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to handle the SiteMapResolve event on an ASP.NET Web page to modify the target URLs that are displayed by a site navigation control, such as the SiteMapPath control. In this example, the current page is a post page in an online bulletin board or forum. In order to render more meaningful site navigation, the URLs of the nodes that are displayed by the navigation control are appended with query strings that are relevant to the context.

Note

It is safe to access the CurrentNode property from within the SiteMapResolveEventHandler class. The ASP.NET site navigation infrastructure guards against infinite recursion, in this case.

private void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    // The ExpandForumPaths method is called to handle
    // the SiteMapResolve event.
    SiteMap.SiteMapResolve +=
      new SiteMapResolveEventHandler(this.ExpandForumPaths);
}

private SiteMapNode ExpandForumPaths(Object sender, SiteMapResolveEventArgs e)
{
    // The current node represents a Post page in a bulletin board forum.
    // Clone the current node and all of its relevant parents. This
    // returns a site map node that a developer can then
    // walk, modifying each node.Url property in turn.
    // Since the cloned nodes are separate from the underlying
    // site navigation structure, the fixups that are made do not
    // effect the overall site navigation structure.
    SiteMapNode currentNode = SiteMap.CurrentNode.Clone(true);
    SiteMapNode tempNode = currentNode;

    // Obtain the recent IDs.
    int forumGroupID = GetMostRecentForumGroupID();
    int forumID = GetMostRecentForumID(forumGroupID);
    int postID = GetMostRecentPostID(forumID);

    // The current node, and its parents, can be modified to include
    // dynamic querystring information relevant to the currently
    // executing request.
    if (0 != postID)
    {
        tempNode.Url = tempNode.Url + "?PostID=" + postID.ToString();
    }

    if ((null != (tempNode = tempNode.ParentNode)) &&
        (0 != forumID))
    {
        tempNode.Url = tempNode.Url + "?ForumID=" + forumID.ToString();
    }

    if ((null != (tempNode = tempNode.ParentNode)) &&
        (0 != forumGroupID))
    {
        tempNode.Url = tempNode.Url + "?ForumGroupID=" + forumGroupID.ToString();
    }

    return currentNode;
}
Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

    ' The ExpandForumPaths method is called to handle
    ' the SiteMapResolve event.
    AddHandler SiteMap.SiteMapResolve, AddressOf Me.ExpandForumPaths

End Sub

Remarks

The static SiteMap class exposes the SiteMapResolve event of the default site map provider.

When you create a SqlDataSourceCommandEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event handler delegates, see Handling and Raising Events.
