               view = new DataView(menuData);
               view.RowFilter = "ParentID IS NULL";
               foreach (DataRowView row in view)

                   MenuItem newMenuItem = new MenuItem(row["Text"].ToString(), row["MenuID"].ToString());

                   AddChildMenuItems(menuData, newMenuItem);
               litReports.Text = menu.ToString();//asuming that Url and Text are values you select from the DB
