SiteMapPath::CurrentNodeTemplate Property

Gets or sets a control template to use for the node of a site navigation path that represents the currently displayed page.

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

virtual property ITemplate^ CurrentNodeTemplate {
	ITemplate^ get ();
	void set (ITemplate^ value);

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI::ITemplate
An ITemplate object that implements the InstantiateIn method, to render custom content for the navigation path node that represents the currently displayed page.

Set the CurrentNodeTemplate to an ITemplate object to use an Image control or some other control, such as a Label, as the current node's user interface element instead of a string.

If the CurrentNodeTemplate property is set, the template overrides both the current navigation node text displayed and any CurrentNodeStyle applied to it. If the currently displayed page corresponds to the root node, however, the RootNodeTemplate or RootNodeStyle is used.

You can declaratively set the CurrentNodeTemplate property to any Web server control, and the ASP.NET infrastructure performs the necessary steps to wrap the Web server control as an ITemplate object. However, Web server controls do not implement the ITemplate interface; therefore, when you work with the ITemplate properties programmatically, you must write an ITemplate wrapper for any template code. Then, the CurrentNodeTemplate property is set to an instance of the ITemplate wrapper.

The following code example declaratively defines a CurrentNodeTemplate and overrides a defined CurrentNodeStyle.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
