give some code to see


You can do it easily. There are many processes. I would like to discuss one of them here.

Step-1: Create all the menu items and keep them into a table e.g Menu_Table.
step-2: Keep a field there in the table which keeps the track of the admin portion.
step-3: Create a stored procedure or a query to pop out the menu items based on the user roles
(admin or normal user)
Step-4: pass the user role from your page to the stored procedure and pop out the data for the respective user for the menu items and pass the values to the menu control at the master page.

This is not the ultimate way you can follow any way based on your requirement. I have shown you a simple way that you can follow for your requirement.

What database you are using? I had mentioned in my solution that you can create a sp or can simply write query to retrieve the data from the table. There is no such restriction and no standard sps for this particular thing. You can write it of your own to customize your requirements.
It depends on logic that you use. In Master page give id for all links. And in page load event based on user type make visibility of the links false. Your user type can be session or cookies.

Source code
        <asp:HyperLink ID="hlinkAdmin" NavigateUrl="~/Admin.aspx" runat="server">Admin</asp:HyperLink>
        <asp:HyperLink ID="hlinkUser" NavigateUrl="~/User.aspx" runat="server">User</asp:HyperLink>

code behind:
public string uType="Admin"; // It can be Session or Cookie value
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        string errorMsg = "";
        if (uType == "Admin")
            hlinkUser.Visible = false;
        else if (uType == "User")
            hlinkAdmin.Visible = false;
            errorMsg = "Not logged in";

Hope it helps you.
<% If User.IsInRole("SomeAdminRole") Then%>
<% Else%>
<% End If%>
