PathDirection Enumeration

Note: This enumeration is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Indicates the hierarchical order in which navigation nodes are rendered for site-navigation controls.

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

public enum PathDirection
public enum PathDirection
public enum PathDirection

 Member nameDescription
CurrentToRootNodes are rendered in a hierarchical order from the current node to the top-most node, from left to right. 
RootToCurrentNodes are rendered in a hierarchical order from the top-most node to the current node, from left to right. 

The PathDirection enumeration is used by the SiteMapPath control to specify the ordering used to render site map nodes. If the PathDirection property is set to RootToCurrent, the navigation path is displayed in the most common way, from the top-most node to the current node, from left to right. If the PathDirection is set to CurrentToRoot, the navigation path is displayed from the current node to the top-most node, from left to right.

The following code example demonstrates how to declaratively set the PathDirection property of a SiteMapPath in a Web Forms page.
