StartFromCurrentNode Property

SiteMapDataSource.StartFromCurrentNode Property


Gets or sets a value indicating whether the site map node tree is retrieved using the node that represents the current page.

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

public virtual bool StartFromCurrentNode { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the node tree is retrieved relative to the current page; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The StartFromCurrentNode property is evaluated during calls to the GetView and the GetHierarchicalView methods to help determine which site map node to use as a starting point to build the node tree. The StartFromCurrentNode and StartingNodeUrl properties are mutually exclusive — if you set the StartingNodeUrl property, ensure that the StartFromCurrentNode property is false.

The value of the StartFromCurrentNode property is stored in view state.
