Menu.MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels Property

Gets or sets the number of menu levels to render for a dynamic menu.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

[ThemeableAttribute(true)] 
public int MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels { get; set; }
/** @property */
public int get_MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels ()

/** @property */
public void set_MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels (int value)

public function get MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels () : int

public function set MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels (value : int)

Not applicable.

Property Value

The number of menu levels to render for a dynamic menu. The default is 3.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels property is set to a value less than 0.

You can display multiple menu levels in the static menu by setting the StaticDisplayLevels property to a value greater than 1. You can also display additional levels in dynamic menus by setting this property to a value greater than 0. For example, if you display two menu levels in the static menu (by setting the StaticDisplayLevels property to 2) and then set this property to 3, three additional menu levels are displayed in dynamic menus. All remaining higher menu levels (if any) are discarded.

NoteNote:

Setting this property to 0 displays a flat menu up to the level specified by the StaticDisplayLevels property, without any dynamic menus.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels property to limit the number of menu levels to display in a dynamic menu to 1. Only the root menu level is displayed.
