    In a website with complex, left hand only navigation I would like to be able to change the navigation control (or the content of the control) based on location in the website.  For example, the initial left-hand navigation may have choices like Parent, Student, Teacher.  When clicking on Parent a landing page with an entirely new set of left-hand navigation choices will appear.

    My initial thinking was to create multiple nav controls in the master page and show/hide them based on URL.  Is this possible/preferable or are there better ways to handle this?

    I have attempted using the RadPanel for this and would like to stick with this control if possible, to get the benefits of navigation updating automatically as pages are created.

    Hi Josh,

    All you have to do is getting a list of the pages that you want to show and pass them as a datasource of your control .
