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

public virtual SiteMapNodeItemType ItemType { get; }
/** @property */

public function get ItemType () : SiteMapNodeItemType

Not applicable.

Property Value

A member of the SiteMapNodeItemType enumeration that indicates the functional role of the node item in the navigation path hierarchy.

SiteMapNodeItem objects that have a PathSeparator type are not bound to a corresponding SiteMapNode.

The following code example demonstrates how to check the type of a SiteMapNodeItem using the ItemType property. In this example, the only node type that the InitializeItem method handles is the CurrentNode type. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SiteMapPath class.

// Override the InitializeItem method to add a PathSeparator
// and DropDownList to the current node.
protected override void InitializeItem(SiteMapNodeItem item) {

    // The only node that must be handled is the CurrentNode.
    if (item.ItemType == SiteMapNodeItemType.Current)
    {
        HyperLink hLink = new HyperLink();

        // No Theming for the HyperLink.
        hLink.EnableTheming = false;
        // Enable the link of the SiteMapPath is enabled.
        hLink.Enabled = this.Enabled;

        // Set the properties of the HyperLink to
        // match those of the corresponding SiteMapNode.
        hLink.NavigateUrl = item.SiteMapNode.Url;
        hLink.Text        = item.SiteMapNode.Title;
        if (ShowToolTips) {
            hLink.ToolTip = item.SiteMapNode.Description;
        }

        // Apply styles or templates to the HyperLink here.
        // ...
        // ...

        // Add the item to the Controls collection.
        item.Controls.Add(hLink);

        AddDropDownListAfterCurrentNode(item);
    }
    else {
        base.InitializeItem(item);
    }
}

// Override the InitializeItem method to add a PathSeparator
// and DropDownList to the current node.
protected void InitializeItem(SiteMapNodeItem item)
{
    // The only node that must be handled is the CurrentNode.
    if (item.get_ItemType().Equals(SiteMapNodeItemType.Current)) {
        HyperLink hLink = new HyperLink();
        // No Theming for the HyperLink.
        hLink.set_EnableTheming(false);
        // Enable the link of the SiteMapPath is enabled.
        hLink.set_Enabled(this.get_Enabled());
        // Set the properties of the HyperLink to 
        // match those of the corresponding SiteMapNode.
        hLink.set_NavigateUrl(item.get_SiteMapNode().get_Url());
        hLink.set_Text(item.get_SiteMapNode().get_Title());
        if (get_ShowToolTips()) {
            hLink.set_ToolTip(item.get_SiteMapNode().get_Description());
        }
        // Apply styles or templates to the HyperLink here.
        // ...
        // ...
        // Add the item to the Controls collection.
        item.get_Controls().Add(hLink);

        AddDropDownListAfterCurrentNode(item);
    }
    else {
        super.InitializeItem(item);
    }   
} //InitializeItem
