Property Value

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.
