Getting Started with WinForms NavigationView

To start using RadNavigationView, just drag it from the toolbox and drop it onto the form.

1. Select the RadNavigationView control and click the small arrow on the top right position in order to open the Smart Tag. It allows you to add/remove pages and adjust the settings relevant for the NavigationView
