Level Settings

RadSiteMap provides a way to customize the behavior of the nodes at any level.

RadSiteMap support both global level settings and per level settings.

  • DefaultLevelSettings - applied globally to the nodes on all levels.

The following example shows how to show only the first three nodes in every level by utilizing the MaximumNodes property:

<telerik:RadSiteMap ID="RadSiteMap2" runat="server" DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource">
    <DefaultLevelSettings MaximumNodes="3">
    </DefaultLevelSettings>
</telerik:RadSiteMap>
  • LevelSettings - applied to the nodes per level. It overrides the DefaultLevelSettings.

The following example shows how the LevelSettings override the MaximumNodes value of the first (zero) level:

<telerik:RadSiteMap ID="RadSiteMap2" runat="server" DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource">
    <DefaultLevelSettings MaximumNodes="3">
    </DefaultLevelSettings>
    <LevelSettings>
        <telerik:SiteMapLevelSetting Level="0" MaximumNodes="4">
        </telerik:SiteMapLevelSetting>
    </LevelSettings>
</telerik:RadSiteMap>

Here the default setting for MaximumNode = 3 is applied to all levels except level 0 which is overridden by the level settings.
