I have a menu that I would like to use content in such as the "Stores" menu option in the example found here.  Basically I want to add HTML markup to a parent menu item.  Is this possible?

Thank you,
David A.

Hello David,

The work-around which you can use is to use the overload which accepts sitemapitem action. There you can set the text to be the actual content and you can set the encoded option to false.

      .BindTo("sample", (item, node) =>
          item.Encoded = false ;
          item.Text = node.Attributes["foo"] == null ? "<h1>test</h1>" : "<h1>" + node.Attributes["foo"].ToString() + "</h1>";

In the snippet above foo is an attribute in the sitemap xml.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
  <siteMapNode title="Home" controller="Home" action="Overview">
    <siteMapNode title="Grid">
      <siteMapNode controller="grid" foo="bar baz" action="index" title="First Look (Razor)" area="razor"/>
      <siteMapNode controller="grid" action="index" title="First Look (ASPX)" area="aspx"/>

I hope this helps.

All the best,
