I am building a fairly simple menu with the RadMenu Control and it works well, but I would like to be able to hide certain menu items based on an attribute in the .sitemap file.  ie.  hideFromMenu="true"

I thought I would be able to do this in a RadMenu_OnItemDataBound type of method where I would just check the attribute of the sitemap node and hide the ones that are set to be hidden. 

This doesn't seem to be the case and I'm sure other people have had a similar issue. 

Has anyone done this yet?

thanks

Hello Pat O'Neil,

Using the ItemDataBound event is the recommended approach. There you can cast e.Item.DataItem to SiteMapNode and check the appropriate attribute. Here is a code snippet which illustrates the idea:

    protected void RadMenu1_ItemDataBound(object sender, RadMenuEventArgs e)
    {
        SiteMapNode node = (SiteMapNode)e.Item.DataItem;

        if (node["myAttribute"] == "true")
        {
            e.Item.Owner.Items.Remove(e.Item);
        }
    }
