Gets or sets the name of the SiteMapProvider used to render the site navigation control.
Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
The SiteMapPath control uses a SiteMapProvider as a source for the site map data it renders. If the property is not set, the SiteMapPath control uses the provider identified by the SiteMap.Provider property, which is the default SiteMapProvider defined for the site in the configuration hierarchy, typically the XmlSiteMapProvider. Setting the property directs the SiteMapPath control to render the site map data that the provider defines.
The SiteMapPath control works directly with a SiteMapProvider and its SiteMapNode objects to display site map information. Other controls, such as Menu and TreeView, require a data abstraction, provided by the SiteMapDataSource class, to display the same site navigation information.
The value of this property is stored in view state.
