Menu.StaticMenuStyle Property

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

Gets a reference to the MenuItemStyle object that allows you to set the appearance of a static menu.

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

public SubMenuStyle StaticMenuStyle { get; }
/** @property */
public SubMenuStyle get_StaticMenuStyle ()

public function get StaticMenuStyle () : SubMenuStyle

Property Value

A reference to the MenuItemStyle that represents the style of a static menu.

Use the StaticMenuStyle property to control the appearance of a static menu. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the MenuItemStyle object it returns. The properties can be set declaratively in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the MenuItemStyle object (for example, StaticMenuStyle-ForeColor). The properties can also be set programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, StaticMenuStyle.ForeColor).

Style properties for a static menu item are applied in the following order:

  1. StaticMenuStyle.

  2. StaticMenuItemStyle. If the LevelMenuItemStyles collection or LevelSubMenuStyles collection is defined, it is applied at this time, overriding the other menu item style properties.

  3. StaticSelectedStyle. If the LevelSelectedStyles collection is defined, it is applied at this time, overriding the other menu item style properties.

  4. StaticHoverStyle.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the StaticMenuStyle property to specify a light sky blue background color for the entire static menu.
