how can i programmically hide menu items in c#

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net



I have used the asp.net menu control to add in a menu to my website.

It has a sitemap attached to it.

I want to hide some of the menu items when certain users are logged in.

I have seen a way to do this via the site-map security trimming feature in the web.config file.

However, I want to know if there is an alternative way to do this using C#.


Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can go about this.

SharePoint - Hide items in 'Site Actions' menu


I would like to hide a number of items currently listed in the 'Site Actions' menu of a publishing site I've created.

I've deployed a feature that adds a link to the 'Site Actions' menu that links to a custom application.

In this feature would I be able to also specify which 'Site Actions' items to hide?

Hide a repeater in ASP.NET C# if the DataSource contains no items?

I have an ASP.NET page that uses a repeater nested within another repeater to generate a listing of data. It's to the effect of the following:
In the (C#) code-behind I'm basically using LINQ to pull a listing of information from an XML document and bind that information to the first repeater.

Searching for the answer to this, it seems the method is to determine whether the data for the nested repeater is empty. If it is, then you set the visibility of the repeater to false.

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.

How to Make CSS for Hyperlinks NOT Affect Menu Items


VWD 2008 Express.

I have the following CSS in my DefaultStyleSheet.css file.  I want this to only apply to text hyperlinks (like links to web sites or email addresses) but NOT to my asp:menu items.  I am finding that although I have defined my asp:menu items in the menu properties, the colors in the text in the menu tabs get overridden by the CSS below.  How can I make this not happen?  Thanks for any help.

Menu with Static and Dynamic Menu Items

I need to populate a menu with static and dynamic (at runtime) menu items.  I know this issue has been posted before, but I haven't seen anything with a date newer than 2009. This is what I want to do: <Menu> <Menu.ItemsSource>                     <CompositeCollection>                      <MenuItem Header="Menu Item 1" /> <MenuItem Header="Menu Item 2" /> <MenuItem Header="Menu Item 3" />                         <CollectionContainer Collection="{Binding MyMenuItems}" />                     </CompositeCollection> </Menu.ItemsSource> </Menu>   The posts every where say the issue is that CompositeCollection is not freezable.  Regardless of that arguement, has anyone come up with a good solution.  I don't want to create it all in code behind because it is a decent size menu with separators, etc.  This seems like something that should have been fixed or have a decent work round by now.   Thanks. 

Customize SharePoint Library Menu Items

Hi, In a library with file, the menu items available for any file is: View Properties, Edit Properties, Manage Permissions, Edit in <ApplicationName>, Delete, Send To, Check Out, Workflows, Alert Me . Now, I want to get rid of Edit Properties, Manage Permissions, Edit in <ApplicationName>, Delete, Check Out . Added to this is the need to remove the option in the Actions menu that states "Open With Windows Explorer " and finally the "Upload " menu is to go out. Any JScript for this or a file I need to edit to get this result? I need this because the business wants it out, its bordering on security. ThanksYou've only got one life; help as many people as you can, and enjoy it while it lasts.
