Menu.DynamicMenuStyle Property

Gets a reference to the MenuItemStyle object that allows you to set the appearance of a dynamic menu.

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

[PersistenceModeAttribute(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty)]
public SubMenuStyle DynamicMenuStyle { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.SubMenuStyle
A reference to the MenuItemStyle that represents the style of a dynamic menu.

Use the DynamicMenuStyle property to control the appearance of a dynamic menu. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the MenuItemStyle object it returns. The properties can be set declaratively in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the MenuItemStyle object (for example, DynamicMenuStyle-ForeColor). The properties can also be set programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, DynamicMenuStyle.ForeColor).

Style properties for a dynamic menu item are applied in the following order:

  1. DynamicMenuStyle.

  2. DynamicMenuItemStyle. If the LevelMenuItemStyles collection or LevelSubMenuStyles collection is defined, it is applied at this time, overriding the other menu item style properties.

  3. DynamicSelectedStyle. If the LevelSelectedStyles collection is defined, it is applied at this time, overriding the other menu item style properties.

  4. DynamicHoverStyle.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DynamicMenuStyle property to specify a light sky blue background color for a dynamic menu.
