The SiteMapSection class provides a way to programmatically access and modify the content of the configuration file siteMap section.

This example demonstrates how to specify values declaratively for several attributes of the siteMap section, which can also be accessed as members of the SiteMapSection class.

The following configuration file example shows how to specify values declaratively for the siteMap section.

<system.web>
  <siteMap defaultProvider="XmlSiteMapReader" enabled="true">
    <providers>
      <clear />
      <add 
        name="XmlSiteMapReader"
        type="XmlSiteMapProvider, System.Web, Version=1.1.3300.0,
              Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
        siteMapFile="my.sitemap" 
        description="XmlSiteMapProvider that loads my.sitemap"/>
    </providers>
  </siteMap>
</system.web>

The following code example demonstrates how to use the SiteMapSection class.
