Semantic Rendering for Minimal HTML

The Telerik ASP.NET SiteMap implements a highly efficient semantic rendering, which results in minimum HTML output and dramatically improves performance.

Flexible layouts

You can configure the layout of RadSiteMap in a variety of modes. The nodes can be viewed in either list or flow state. By selecting the flow property items in the group will be arranged in rows one after the other, instead of displaying them as a list. End-users can also alternate between single, multi-column, horizontal or vertical view. In addition you can display node lines in a fashion similar to RadTreeView and collapse the hierarchy.


The ASP.NET SiteMap by Telerik allows you to define a collection of dynamic templates that customize the presentation of the hierarchy and the individual nodes. You can apply per-level, per-node and global templates and add extra information, such as images, links to additional sources, etc.
