Hello,

I'm new to Telerik world and creating a RadMenu like this:
       <telerik:RadSiteMap runat="server"   
        ID="RadSiteMapPublications" DataSourceID="RadSiteMapDataPublications" Width="640px">  
        <LevelSettings> 
        <telerik:SiteMapLevelSetting Level="0" ListLayout-RepeatColumns="4" ListLayout-RepeatDirection="Horizontal"></telerik:SiteMapLevelSetting> 
        </LevelSettings> 
        </telerik:RadSiteMap> 
        <telerik:RadSiteMapDataSource ID="RadSiteMapDataPublications" SiteMapFile="~/web.sitemap" ShowStartingNode="false" StartingNodeUrl="http://saratoga/lr/pages/default.aspx?id=2036" runat="server" /> 

which is working fine.

Now, trying to do the same dynamically in the code-behind, it doesn't work. Here is my code:
        Dim myDataSource As New RadSiteMapDataSource  
        myDataSource.SiteMapFile = "~/web.sitemap" 
        myDataSource.ShowStartingNode = False 
        myDataSource.StartingNodeUrl = "http://saratoga/lr/pages/default.aspx?id=2017" 
 
        Dim mySiteMap As New RadSiteMap  
        mySiteMap.Width = 640 
        mySiteMap.Height = 200 
        mySiteMap.DataSource = myDataSource 
 
        Dim mySetting As New SiteMapLevelSetting  
        mySetting.Level = 0 
        mySetting.ListLayout.RepeatColumns = 4 
        mySetting.ListLayout.RepeatDirection = SiteMapRepeatDirection.Horizontal  
 
        mySiteMap.LevelSettings.Add(mySetting)  
 
        myLabel.Controls.Add(mySiteMap) 

"myLabel" is a label on my test page.

I suppose the problem is with the levelSettings, but I don't see where is the error. Could anyone help, please ?

Hi Evelyne Schreiner,

You'll have to add the controls (RadSiteMapDataSource and RadSiteMap) in the Page.Form to be able to create them dynamically:

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
       Dim myDataSource As New RadSiteMapDataSource()
       myDataSource.ID = "RadSiteMapPublications"
       myDataSource.SiteMapFile = "web.sitemap"
       myDataSource.ShowStartingNode = True
       Me.Page.Form.Controls.Add(myDataSource)
       Dim mySiteMap As New RadSiteMap()
       mySiteMap.Width = 640
       mySiteMap.Height = 200
       mySiteMap.DataSourceID = myDataSource.ID
       Dim mySetting As New SiteMapLevelSetting()
       mySetting.Level = 0
       mySetting.ListLayout.RepeatColumns = 4
       mySetting.ListLayout.RepeatDirection = SiteMapRepeatDirection.Horizontal
       mySiteMap.LevelSettings.Add(mySetting)
       Me.Page.Form.Controls.Add(mySiteMap)
   End Sub

Find the full code in the attached .zip file.

Hope this helps.
