Hi:

I've set up a Bootstrap Menu with the following code:

<div class="navbar navbar-inverse">
                <div class="navbar-inner">
                    <ul class="nav">
                        <li class="active"><a href="/Home/Index"><i class="icon-home icon-white"></i>Home</a></li>
                        <li>@Html.ActionLink("Home", "Index", "Home")</li>
                        @if (Request.IsAuthenticated)
                        {
                            <li>@Html.ActionLink("My Courses", "MyCourses", "Home")</li>
                        }
                        <li>@Html.ActionLink("FAQs", "Faqs", "Home")</li>
                    </ul>

                </div>
            </div>

Open in new window


What I'd like to do is that when a person presses on a selection other than home, that item is highlighted and home is not.

Any help in how to do this greatly appreciated.

hi,

you just need to add the "active" class whenever you want the nav link to be the active one. The only trick is to figure out how to do this dynamically. You can do so in javascript or by using code behind. I thought this solution seemed decent to do just that :-)
