This is how i bind

private void BindVerticalApplicationMenu()
if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.VerticalSiteMapProvider))
if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["SiteMapProvider"]))
VerticalSiteMapDataSource.Provider = SiteMap.Providers["SiteMapProvider2"]; //Use default application menu.
VerticalSiteMapDataSource.Provider = SiteMap.Providers[ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["SiteMapProvider"].ToString()];
VerticalSiteMapDataSource.Provider = SiteMap.Providers[this.VerticalSiteMapProvider];

VerticalSiteMapDataSource.ShowStartingNode = false;
tvMenu.DataSourceID = "VerticalSiteMapDataSource";

for (int i = 0; i < tvMenu.Nodes.Count; i++)
if (tvMenu.Nodes[i].ChildNodes.Count > 0)
for (int j = 0; j < tvMenu.Nodes[i].ChildNodes.Count; j++)
tvMenu.Nodes[i].ChildNodes[j].ImageUrl = "~/commonproject/images/navbullet.gif";

But if i change content of site map it loads. But above mentioned sitemap is not getting loaded. Is there any XML syntax error?

1 solution

I was missing to put role (role = "*")
i have added to every siteMapNode where URL = ""
