ASP.NET Menus - SiteMapControl for non-site map menu content?

Posted on 2013-02-01
Last Modified: 2013-02-01
Many times when I read about menus the article or post refers to the SiteMapControl.  I kinda get what that's about, however, I'm building just an arbitrary menu, that invokes JS functions, not page URLs.

Can I still use the SiteMapControl for that, or would I run into problems that would make that not such a good idea?

Any help with this would be appreciated.

My understanding is that shouldn't be a problem invoking js. I haven't given it a try but at the end they are rendered links.
Edit: I take that back. With default SiteMapProvider and .sitemap file, if the url isn't a valid url in the website, the link isn't rendered.

I think in such cases you might have to write your custom SiteMapProvider.
