Sitemap Binding

The TabStrip enables you to create its items by setting a sitemap.

  1. Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC.
  2. Create a simple sitemap with the sample.sitemap file name at the root of the project.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
        <siteMapNode title="Home" controller="Home" action="Overview">
        <siteMapNode controller="grid" action="index" title="Grid" />
        <siteMapNode controller="tabstrip" action="index" title="TabStrip" />
  3. Load the sitemap using SiteMapManager.

    public ActionResult Index()
        if (!SiteMapManager.SiteMaps.ContainsKey("sample"))
            SiteMapManager.SiteMaps.Register<xmlsitemap>("sample", sitmap => sitmap.LoadFrom("~/sample.sitemap"));
        return View();
  4. Add a TabStrip.

           .Name("tabstrip") // The name of the tabstrip is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the TabStrip.
        .BindTo("sample") // Bind to the sitemap with the name "sample".
