Please Help me.it's urgent

1 solution

The SiteMapDataSource control[^] will, by default, bind to the default site map provider, as specified in the web.config file.

You've set defaultProvider="SiteMapDataSource1", which points to Web.sitemap, so both SiteMapDataSource controls will use that site map by default.

To use a different site map, you need to set the SiteMapProvider property[^] to the name of the site map provider you'd like to use:
<asp:SiteMapDataSource ID="SiteMapDataSource2" runat="server" 
    ShowStartingNode="false" 
    SiteMapProvider="SiteMapDataSource2"
/>

NB: The ID of the SiteMapDataSource control is not connected in any way to the name of the site map provider. Setting both to the same string won't connect them. The only way to change the provider is to use the SiteMapProvider property in markup, or the Provider property[^] from your code-behind.
