asp.net breadcrums

i HAVE  a dynamic database sql navigation for the breadcrums. Now some of the breadcrums are headers. How can I have those links, link to no where within the database or in my vb.net code itself.

the problem is If I have no url for the navigation that has no link then I get an error.

Multiple nodes with the same key '' were found. XmlSiteMapProvider requires that sitemap nodes have unique keys.

You can achieve the desired behaviour by setting Selectable property to false, e.g.:

    protected void Menu1_MenuItemDataBound(object sender, MenuEventArgs e)
    {
          if (e.Item.Text == "Home")
        {
                      e.Item.Selectable = false;
        }
    }

Protected Sub WebDataMenu1_MenuItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MenuEventArgs)
        Dim siteMapNode As SiteMapNode = DirectCast(e.Item.DataItem, SiteMapNode)

        Dim visable As String = siteMapNode("visable")
        If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(visable) AndAlso Not Boolean.Parse(visable) Then
            e.Item.ChildItems.Clear()
        End If
        If e.Item.Text = "HOME" Then
            e.Item.Selectable = False
        End If

    End Sub

does not seem to work

    <PathSeparatorStyle Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#507CD1" />
    <CurrentNodeStyle ForeColor="#333333" />

Your event handler is as follows:

Protected Sub WebDataMenu1_MenuItemDataBound

However ID of the menu control is SiteMapPath1. Event handler name should be SiteMapPath1_MenuItemDataBound.

One of the "old school" tricks is to simly link to the hash tag: <a href="#"></a>. so you should be able to use that as your navigation destination.

I assume AutoEventWireup is turned off on your page, please add "handles" at the end of the method definition:

Protected Sub SiteMapPath1_MenuItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MenuEventArgs) Handles SiteMapPath1.MenuItemDataBound
