    Hello, for tab strip control.  how do you control the starting node and how deep the control will go when used as a menu.   for example.   When using tabstrip as a horz menu at the top of a site.   I want to have child pages of top level navagation expand on rollover.   I tried in edit changing the starting node ext. but it didn't work.  then, in another place in the site.  I want to have another nav which is verticle to show only the children of "Page 1"  Can I do this?

    Hi Rob Davis,

    RadTabStrip implements the site hierarchy but has depth functionality only of level one. Still there's a way to change this hierarchy depth. Please refer to this example.
    You should implement the rollover effect on the tabstrip, since it is not supported out of the box. There are also a few examples here.

    I hope the provided information is helpful.

    Kind regards,

    Actually I created a new user control with the code in the first example.   This seems to behave exactly like the stock user control.  I have tried to change the HierarchyDepth from 0 to -1 to -2 and up as well and it always shows the basic same thing

    Hello Rob Davis,

    based on your requested scenarios I don't think you should use TabStrip control at all. TabStrip is generally used as a means for navigation between different views of a same page (e.g. if the page shows contact information of a user, you would have tabs "General", "Personal", "Misc" which would show contact information from different perspectives).

    Now, back to your scenarios:

    " how do you control the starting node and how deep the control will go when used as a menu.   for example.   When using tabstrip as a horz menu at the top of a site.   I want to have child pages of top level navagation expand on rollover."

    - this functionality is provided out of box by RadMenu control, which does exactly that what you are trying to achieve. The rollover with expanding of children nodes is provided out of box, you can set how many levels you want to display and so on. Also menu can be horizontal or vertical and it supports styles, so you can get it to look exactly as the tabstrip if that's the look you are aiming for.

    - "then, in another place in the site.  I want to have another nav which is verticle to show only the children of "Page 1"  Can I do this? "

    Take a look at the sample TUI site where this exact functionality is implemented with a simple asp.net treeview. All you do is set the ShowExpandCollapse="False" property of the treeview to false.

    I hope I was able to clarify some of the peculiarities of different navigational controls we offer. If you have any other questions or need further advice, please, feel free to contact us.
