SharePoint 2007 navigation - part 2

I while ago I started with a blog post serie on SharePoint 2007 navigation. I got to part one so far. Time is my enemy! We have been working on some great things with respect to SharePoint navigation lately like completely modified navigation elements and custom SiteMapProviders. I hope I have the time to elaborate on that in some future blog posts. I the mean time I point you to some nice posts on SharePoint navigation I ran into. Kudos to their authors!

  • Modifying the WSS3 tree navigation control explains how to turn on a tree navigation structure to get results like this:
  • On the SharePoint 2007 documentation on MSDN there is a section called How to: Customize the Display of Quick Launch which describes how to replace the Menu Control with the TreeView Control.
  • Another section in the SharePoint 2007 documentation on MSDN  called Using a Custom Data Source for Navigation describes how to use a delegate feature to replace the QuickLaunchDataSource delegate control in the default master page by defining your custom navigation data source that uses a SiteMapProvider. Cool but advanced stuff!



  • Hello Serge,

    Replacing ASPMenu with SPTreeView as described in Customize the Display of Quick Launch on MSDN. I don't get it to work. The problem is with the DataSourceId DataSourceId="QuickLaunchSiteMap"

    In the SPTreeView this gives me a bindings error. Have you tried this and can you give me a direction?
