    We have a specific situation which is not so uncommon. We are using Kendo controls for ASP.NET MVC and binding them to ASP.NET Sitemap which works ok.

    We would need to setup on the top of the page Kendo Menu (or any other Kendo control?) which will show only the top level menu options without their children. Besides that, on the left side there should be another menu which does not show the top level items, but only their children.

    For example:
    - Users
           - Create
           - Manage
           - List
    - Payments
           - Create
           - Due
           - List

    Top menu should show only Users and Payments items. Left menu should show depending on which page you are either children of Users or children of Payments.

    How can this be achieved?

    Thank you!

    Hello Aljoša,

    The described behavior is unfortunately not possible to achieve. When you use sitemap binding, all items from the sitemap will be used.

    In your case you will need to hard-code the Menu items in the view, or resort to model binding (see the corresponding Menu demo in the offline demo site).
