Is anyone familiar with the following method used to display a subset of items in the SiteMap to be rendered on a specific menu?

http://weblogs.asp.net/dneimke/archive/2005/03/29/396103.aspx

I have tried using this method in a myriad of different ways and cannot get this to work.  It seems straightforward, but I can't get it to work.

This is the current way I'm trying to get it to work:

<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="TopNavigationBar.ascx.cs" Inherits="UserControls_TopNavigationBar" %>
<asp:Repeater runat="server" ID="siteMapAsBulletedList" DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource1" OnItemCommand="siteMapAsBulletedList_ItemCommand">
    <HeaderTemplate>
        <ul>
            <li><asp:HyperLink runat="server" ID="lnkHome" NavigateUrl='<%# SiteMap.RootNode.Url %>' Text='<%# SiteMap.RootNode.Title %>'></asp:HyperLink></li>
    </HeaderTemplate>
    <ItemTemplate>
        <li>
            <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("Url") %>' Text='<%# Eval("Title") %>'></asp:HyperLink>
        </li>
    </ItemTemplate>
    <FooterTemplate>
        </ul>
    </FooterTemplate>
</asp:Repeater>
<asp:SiteMapDataSource ShowStartingNode="false" ID="SiteMapDataSource1" runat="server" />

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;

public partial class UserControls_TopNavigationBar : System.Web.UI.UserControl
{

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       
    }
   
    protected void siteMapAsBulletedList_ItemCommand(object source, RepeaterCommandEventArgs e)
    {
        SiteMapNode node = e.Item.DataItem as SiteMapNode;
        string display = node["MenuLocation"];
        if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(display) || display != "top")
        {
            e.Item.Visible = false;
        }
    }
}

No errors, just doesn't display the subset of items from the sitemap I've specified.

Here is my sitemap:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

    </siteMapNode>
    </siteMapNode>
</siteMap>

Any help?

Move the code in your ItemCommand-event to the ItemCreated event of the repeater, and add a
if (node==null) return;
after
SiteMapNode node = e.Item.DataItem as SiteMapNode;

The ItemCommand event is for handling things like button-clicks inside your repeater, and it's not fired during creation of the repeater items.

I received the following error:

No overload for 'siteMapAsBulletedList_ItemCreated' matches delegate 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterItemEventHandler'

user control:

<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="TopNavigationBar.ascx.cs"
Inherits="UserControls_TopNavigationBar" %>
<asp:Repeater runat="server" ID="siteMapAsBulletedList" DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource1" OnItemCreated="siteMapAsBulletedList_ItemCreated">
    <HeaderTemplate>
        <ul>
            <li><asp:HyperLink runat="server" ID="lnkHome" NavigateUrl='<%# SiteMap.RootNode.Url %>' Text='<%# SiteMap.RootNode.Title %>'></asp:HyperLink></li>
    </HeaderTemplate>
    <ItemTemplate>
        <li>
            <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("Url") %>' Text='<%# Eval("Title") %>'></asp:HyperLink>
        </li>
    </ItemTemplate>
    <FooterTemplate>
        </ul>
    </FooterTemplate>
</asp:Repeater>
<asp:SiteMapDataSource ShowStartingNode="false" ID="SiteMapDataSource1" runat="server" />

code-behind:

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;

public partial class UserControls_TopNavigationBar : System.Web.UI.UserControl
{

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       
    }
   
    protected void siteMapAsBulletedList_ItemCreated(object source, RepeaterCommandEventArgs e)
    {
        SiteMapNode node = e.Item.DataItem as SiteMapNode;
        if (node == null) return;
        string display = node["MenuLocation"];
        if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(display) || display != "top")
        {
            e.Item.Visible = false;
        }
    }
}


Is this incorrect?

Thanks for your help

You must replace RepeaterCommandEventArgs with  RepeaterItemEventArgs

protected void siteMapAsBulletedList_ItemCreated(object source, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
