I get an error...Session("sessionhome_page"

instead of this:
 <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="~/Local Control Panel.aspx" Text="Local Control Panel" Value="Local Control Panel">              
                    </asp:MenuItem>



I want to do this:
   <asp:MenuItem Session("sessionhome_page")>              
                    </asp:MenuItem>

Hi GlobaLevel,

Perhaps you may want to store just the URL:

<asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl='Session("sessionhome_page_url")' Text="Local Control Panel" Value="Local Control Panel" />

Or break them up into 3 different variables so that you can use:

<asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl='Session("sessionhome_page_url")' Text='Session("sessionhome_page_text")' Value='Session("sessionhome_page_value")' />

sorry for the late reply,

assume you define a menu in the aspx
<asp:Menu runat="server" ID="Mnutest"></asp:Menu>

in the code behind, you can add the following in Page_Load
            MenuItem tmpitem = new MenuItem();
            tmpitem.Text = Session["sessionhome_page_text"];
            tmpitem.Value = Session["sessionhome_page_value"];
            tmpitem.NavigateUrl = Session["sessionhome_page_url"];

            this.Mnutest.Items.Add(tmpitem);


hope this help!

Hi!

Sorry for the wrong code posted, please view the modified code below:


<asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl='<%# Session("sessionhome_page_url") %>' Text="Local Control Panel" Value="Local Control Panel" />

Or break them up into 3 different variables so that you can use:

<asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl='<%# Session("sessionhome_page_url") %>' Text='<%# Session("sessionhome_page_text") %>' Value='<%# Session("sessionhome_page_value") %>' />

I like this....but I have to add it to every page where this a menu item....... I was hoping with the session varabile just have it on one page the code behind

assume you define a menu in the aspx
<asp:Menu runat="server" ID="Mnutest"></asp:Menu>

in the code behind, you can add the following in Page_Load
            MenuItem tmpitem = new MenuItem();
            tmpitem.Text = Session["sessionhome_page_text"];
            tmpitem.Value = Session["sessionhome_page_value"];
            tmpitem.NavigateUrl = Session["sessionhome_page_url"];

            this.Mnutest.Items.Add(tmpitem);

you can put it on the master page code behind

the only problem is when will you assign the session variable value?
