Here is Part 3

Toolbox is very-very important building block of .NET Framework. Toolbox is an area where all the controls existed. It helps the developer to develop any application very quickly, only drag the control from the toolbox and drop it on the form. To change its properties we have to select the control and make the properties changes from Properties window. We can do it manually by writing code-behind. There are over 100 controls available in ASP.NET 4.0. I am listing here all the controls available in ASP.NET 4.0 and writing some lines on each of them.


4. Navigation Controls:

Navigation Controls are used to navigate in web application. Like by using a simple hyperlink we can navigate to another page but hyperlink can't show hierarchical or drop down menu or say links to navigate. Using Menu, SiteMapPath or TreeView control we can easily accomplish such tasks.

  • Pointer: It is just a pointer. If we drag any other control on form it causes to create that control on form but pointer does not create any control on form. In other word we can say, we select it for to ignore any other selected control.
  • Menu: This control is used to create one or more MenuItems typically organized into different levels of a hierarchy. In this each MenuItem consists of properties that determine the look and feel of the MenuItem like text, navigateURL etc. Using CSS we can make this menu dynamic or cool look.
  • SiteMapPath: This control is used to displays a list of links representing the user's current page and the hierarchal path back to the root of the web application. In other word SiteMapPath is a way to present all folders and pages of the website.
  • TreeView: This control is used to display the item in tree view format. We can expand and collapse the data list using tree root +/- sign.

Note1: Keep visiting to my articles, you will find different articles on different controls separately in coming days.
