CSS Friendly Menu Control in ASP.NET 4.0


It is very much easier to apply CSS when we have ul,li elements as the HTML content. If we look into ASP.NET Menu Control till Version 3.5, its render as Table-TR-TD Tag. Though Table/Tr/Td is quite useful to display tabular data but sometime  creates  a big problem when we need to do more work with CSS. To overcome this problem we generally used CSS Friendly adapter to render the ASP.NET Control in ul/li mode.

ASP.NET 4.0 makes the things easier for web developer by providing “RenderingMode” properties. Here we can specify RenderMode of a ASP.NET Menu control. Which define the what will be the HTML Render Content Type. Bydefault mode is “List” which means control will be render as ul/li

As per the above diagram we can see that there are three mode available. We can use any one of them as per the requirement.
