public enum MenuRenderingMode

Member nameDescription
Default

The Menu control renders markup in the way it does by default for the version of ASP.NET indicated by the RenderingCompatibility property of the control. If the value of the RenderingCompatibility property is 3.5, this setting is equivalent to Table. If the value of the RenderingCompatibility property is 4.0 or greater, this setting is equivalent to List.

List

The Menu control renders markup by using list item (li) elements and CSS styles.

Table

The Menu control renders markup by using table elements and inline styles.

You use the MenuRenderingMode enumeration when you set the RenderingMode property of the Menu control. The value that you assign to the RenderingMode property determines how the Menu control renders markup.

In ASP.NET 3.5 and earlier versions, the Menu control uses HTML table elements and inline styles to control the appearance of the menu in a browser. In ASP.NET 4 and later versions, by default the Menu control uses listitem elements and cascading style sheet (CSS) styles. This enumeration is provided for backward compatibility. In ASP.NET 4 and later versions, you can use this enumeration to specify that you want the menu control to generate markup the way it does in earlier versions of ASP.NET.
