MenuItemBindingCollection.Add Method

Appends the specified MenuItemBinding object to the end of the collection.

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

public int Add(
	MenuItemBinding binding
)

Parameters

binding
Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.MenuItemBinding

The MenuItemBinding to append to the end of the collection.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
The index at which the MenuItemBinding was inserted in the collection.

Use the Add method to append the specified MenuItemBinding object to the end of the collection.

NoteNote

You can add null values and duplicate MenuItemBinding objects to the collection.

As an alternative, you can insert a MenuItemBinding object in the collection at a specific index by using the Insert method.

NoteNote

The order in which MenuItemBinding objects appear in the collection has no effect on how those objects are applied to the menu items in a Menu control.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Add method to append a MenuItemBinding object to the end of the DataBindings collection of a Menu control. For this example to work correctly, you must copy the sample XML data below to a file named Map.xml.
