SiteMapNodeCollection.Add Method

Adds a single SiteMapNode object to the collection.

Namespace:  System.Web
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

Public Overridable Function Add ( _
	value As SiteMapNode _
) As Integer


Type: System.Web.SiteMapNode

The SiteMapNode to add to the SiteMapNodeCollection.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
The index of the InnerList where the SiteMapNode was inserted.


value is Nothing.


The SiteMapNodeCollection is read-only.

You cannot add a SiteMapNode object to a read-only or fixed-size SiteMapNodeCollection collection. You can test whether a SiteMapNodeCollection is read-only by checking the IsReadOnly property.

This section contains two code examples. The first code example demonstrates how to create a new SiteMapNodeCollection collection and add elements to it. The second code example demonstrates how to add elements to a custom site map provider.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the SiteMapNodeCollection constructor to create a new SiteMapNodeCollection, and then add elements to it with the Add method.

        ' The LoadSiteMapData() Function loads site navigation 
        ' data from persistent storage into a DataTable. 

        Dim siteMapData As DataTable
        siteMapData = LoadSiteMapData()

        ' Create a SiteMapNodeCollection. 
        Dim nodes As New SiteMapNodeCollection()

        ' Create a SiteMapNode and add it to the collection. 
        Dim tempNode As SiteMapNode
        Dim row As DataRow
        Dim index As Integer
        index = 0

        While (index < siteMapData.Rows.Count)

            row = siteMapData.Rows(index)

            ' Create a node based on the data in the DataRow.
            tempNode = New SiteMapNode(SiteMap.Provider, row("Key").ToString(), row("Url").ToString())

            ' Add the node to the collection.
            index = index + 1
        End While

The following code example demonstrates a custom site map provider implementation and shows how to use the SiteMapNodeCollection constructor to create a new SiteMapNodeCollection and add elements to the SiteMapNodeCollection with the Add method.

This code example is part of a larger code example provided for the SiteMapProvider class.

' Implement the GetChildNodes method. 
Public Overrides Function GetChildNodes(ByVal node As SiteMapNode) As SiteMapNodeCollection
  Dim children As New SiteMapNodeCollection()
  ' Iterate through the ArrayList and find all nodes that have the specified node as a parent. 
  SyncLock Me 
    Dim i As Integer 
    For i = 0 To childParentRelationship.Count - 1

      Dim de As DictionaryEntry = CType(childParentRelationship(i), DictionaryEntry)
      Dim nodeUrl As String = CType(de.Key, String)

      Dim parent As SiteMapNode = GetNode(childParentRelationship, nodeUrl)

      If Not (parent Is Nothing) AndAlso node.Url = parent.Url Then 
        ' The SiteMapNode with the Url that corresponds to nodeUrl 
        ' is a child of the specified node. Get the SiteMapNode for 
        ' the nodeUrl. 
        Dim child As SiteMapNode = FindSiteMapNode(nodeUrl)
        If Not (child Is Nothing) Then
          children.Add(CType(child, SiteMapNode))
          Throw New Exception("ArrayLists not in sync.")
        End If 
      End If 
    Next i
  End SyncLock 
  Return children
End Function 'GetChildNodes

Protected Overrides Function GetRootNodeCore() As SiteMapNode
  Return RootNode
End Function ' GetRootNodeCore()

' Implement the GetParentNode method. 
Public Overrides Function GetParentNode(ByVal node As SiteMapNode) As SiteMapNode
  ' Check the childParentRelationship table and find the parent of the current node. 
  ' If there is no parent, the current node is the RootNode. 
  Dim parent As SiteMapNode = Nothing 
  SyncLock Me 
    ' Get the Value of the node in childParentRelationship
    parent = GetNode(childParentRelationship, node.Url)
  End SyncLock 
  Return parent
End Function 'GetParentNode
