SiteMapPath.PathSeparator Property

Gets or sets the string that delimits SiteMapPath nodes in the rendered navigation path.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
public virtual string PathSeparator { get; set; }
<asp:SiteMapPath PathSeparator="String" />

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string that represents the delimiter for the nodes in a navigation path. The default is " > ", which is a character pointing from left to right, and corresponds to the default PathDirection, which is set to RootToCurrent.

If the PathSeparatorStyle is defined, it is applied to the PathSeparator property. However, if a PathSeparatorTemplate property is defined, both the PathSeparator and PathSeparatorStyle properties are ignored.

The value of this property is stored in view state.

The value of this property, when set, can be saved automatically to a resource file by using a designer tool. For more information, see LocalizableAttribute and ASP.NET Globalization and Localization.

The following example demonstrates how to set the PathSeparator property of a SiteMapPath to a string other than the default.
