Load user control (which acts as menu) from different XML files

I need a way to find the xml file which is located in  the currect directory
(please see the screenshot)

now for folder NMI > zzObject.xml (contailns sitemap )
similarly and each folder has its own .xml file

now I have a user control which acts as a menu and that menu needs to be based on the xml file
So,
1. how does the user control know which page is using it
2. how does the user control acess the .xml file fom the directory where the page which has been loaded and then use it.

Hello manivineet

Well there a multiple solutions to your issue and one of them is recursion

DirSearch(C:\)

Private Sub DirSearch(ByVal sDir As String)
        Try
            For Each f As String In Directory.GetFiles(sDir, txtFile.Text)
               lstFilesFound.Items.Add(f)
            Next
            For Each d As String In Directory.GetDirectories(sDir)
                DirSearch(d)
            Next
        Catch excpt As System.Exception
            Console.WriteLine(excpt.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub

another one is to select a relative path and use the above recursive function

Dim execName As String = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetModules()(0).FullyQualifiedName
Dim currentFolder As String = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(execName)
Dim _path As String = System.IO.Path.Combine(currentFolder.Replace("bin\Debug", ""), "Meter\NMI\")
