Implements

Remarks

Use the GetList method to retrieve a set of objects that can be used as sources for the SiteMapDataSource control. Site map data source controls encapsulate their lists of data as SiteMapDataSourceView objects. Therefore, when associated with one or more SiteMapDataSourceView objects, a SiteMapDataSource control represents a list source object and the GetList method returns a list containing one element - the data source control itself.

The GetList method calls the static ListSourceHelper.GetList method to retrieve a list of objects that can be used as sources of data. The ListSourceHelper checks whether the GetViewNames method returns a valid collection of view names. If it does, the ListSourceHelper returns a list containing one element - the SiteMapDataSource.
