help needed with a lookup table of some sort

Hi

I am making a menu in asp.net but the area i need help on is a vb.net issue

I have a menu with 5 tabs. Each tab has a selected and unselected state. Each menu items refers to multiple web pages. For exxample, the menu item My Account is selected when the user is on various pages such as "Edit details", "show my details" and so

I want to create a look up table for the tabs and the webpages they correspond to. Specifically, i will get the name of the webpage the user is looking at. I will look this name up in some sort of look up table (advice need on what to use please). The look up table will return me the name of the tab. I will then set the image for this tab to be the selected image.

What kind of vb.net look up feature will let me store multiple values indexed by a string key?

thanks
andrea

You can create the following generic type:

Dictionary(Of String, List Of AnyOtherType)

This type allows to keep list of any types (like Tab pages) for string key.

You can use also Wintellect Power Collections library which contains MultiDictionary class.  Wintellect Power Collections is free and can be downloaded from here:

I guess it is written in C#, but can be used in any .NET language.
