MenuItem.Selected Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the current menu item is selected in a Menu control.

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

public bool Selected { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_Selected ()

/** @property */
public void set_Selected (boolean value)

public function get Selected () : boolean

public function set Selected (value : boolean)

Not applicable.

Property Value

true to indicate that the current menu item is selected in a Menu control; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Use the Selected property to specify or determine whether the current menu item is selected.

NoteNote:

Although the property can be used to determine whether a menu item is selected, it is more common to use the SelectedItem property.

Only one menu item can be selected at a time in the Menu control.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Selected property to select a specific menu item in a Menu control when the page is first loaded. For this example to work correctly, you must copy the sample site map data below to a file named Web.sitemap.

  void NavigationMenu_MenuItemDataBound(Object sender, MenuEventArgs e)
  {
    // Get the menu item being bound to data.
    MenuItem item = e.Item;

    // Use the Selected property to select the Home 
    // menu item when the page is first loaded.
    if (item.Text == "Home")
    {
      item.Selected = true;
    }
  }
    
</script>

      <asp:sitemapdatasource id="MenuSource"
        runat="server"/>
