i need a border that is transparent around a level of submenu for a asp menu control(not around each of the sub menu item) similar to this.

and also the inside menu should have two layers of submenu if it is too long..

Need help using control adapters at the machine level

Hi guys!

Let me explain our situation. I do web development at a university at which we have to meet strict accessibility guidelines. I've specially modified the adapters (as well as extended CompositeDataBoundControlAdapter to include GridView) for use on our site and to use with our global stylesheets as well as compiled the control adapters into a DLL.

The control adapters now all reside in the WebServices.CssFriendlyAdapters DLL.  (For example, WebServices.CssFriendlyAdapters.GridViewAdapter).

Currently, when someone drops an App_Browsers folder in to their site with the adapters specified, the adapters work. However, we'd like to be able to specify this in the C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\(version number)\CONFIG\Browsers directory so that the adapters work automatically without anyone having to move anything into App_Browsers for every site. To ensure that someone can still use the "old way" or will not be confused by their controls being adapted, I've written in code that uses the base rendering methods unless xhtmlConformance is set to "Strict" in the site's web.config file.

Anyway, on to the problem. When trying to compile the controlAdapters into the C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\(version number)\CONFIG\Browsers directory using aspnet_regbrowsers.exe (see http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms229858.a

ASP.NET 4.0 Menu Top Level selected item style


I want to apply a css class to the level 1 menu item (parent) when it or any or it's children are selected.

I've looked at MSDN documentation and any number of examples and walkthroughs but I haven't come up with a way of managing this. I was thinking something like this might work but the style is not being applied to the parent. To further complicate matters, if I try to apply a css style to StaticSelectedStyle it doesn't pick it up at all.

Menu Markup:

<StaticSelectedStyle  Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#3333CC" />

Code Behind:

        protected void MenuItemClick_NavMenu(Object sender, MenuEventArgs e)


            MenuItem parentItem = e.Item.Parent;

            if (parentItem != null)


                parentItem.Selected = true;



Dynamic menu control


Dear all,

I want to get the names of some folders in my drive and populate my menu control with the names of those folders.

Getting the folder names is not the issue, but how can i populate my menu with the names of getted foldernames.

I tried this:

DirectoryInfo dirInfo = new DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("~\\MyFolders\\"));
DirectoryInfo[] dirs = dirInfo.GetDirectories();
Menu1.DataSource = dirs;

But im getting the error:

HierarchicalDataBoundControl only accepts data sources that implement IHierarchicalDataSource or IHierarchicalEnumerable.


How can i achieve this?

Thanks in advance.


Menu Control


Hi all

Ive got a Menu Control linked to Web.sitemap but would like a step by step example of how

to make it look and behave like the one I found here:-



Is there somewhere I can download an example of this or one similar?




Menu items of Welcome control behaves incorrect in non-IE browsers.


We are using wss 3.0 sp2

I am referring to the welcome control that is part of standard sharepoint pages. This is the in the masterpage. The welcome contrrol has options such as 'sign-in as different user' , 'signout' and so on. When user takes the mouse and tries to click on the sub-menu it doesn't work as if the menu item is not getting focussed (however up/down arrow with keyboard works fine). 

I know that sharepoint sites are not best when viewed with firefox, safari, chrome etc  but is there a fix for this? Is it do with 'z' index setting or something? Can this be fixed through javascript?  

Please share your views/solution.


Menu control rendering issue with IE8



Using VS2010, I created an ASP.NET 4.0 web application and simply added a couple of menu items below the "Home" menu item in the master page that's created by the project wizard. I made no other changes - no code, no stylesheet changes.

If I run the app locally then everything is fine. I suspect because the local IIS is responsive enough for the problem not to occur.

If I deploy the app to a web host (discountasp.net) then I see the menu render vertically for less than a second before it renders correctly. If I refresh the page a few times then usually I can see the menu vertical flash but sometimes I can't, so there's some sort of timing consideration.

I'm using IE8. The problem doesn't seem to occur with either Firefox 3 or Chrome.

Have others seen this problem?

Any suggestions for a fix?

I can supply the zipped up project if anyone wants it.

The OTHER Menu control issue...

Ok, everyone knows that the z-index is messed up in IE8 and that requires patches or workarounds...What I can't seem to find a solution to is the white background on the DynamicMenu parts of a Menu control.  Setting the background color to transparent or not setting it all doesn't seem to have any effect.  This is only a problem in IE8, Firefox 3.6.8 renders the dynamic menus without the white background.
