    I'm using the navigation widget in the left sidebar of my pages, and I'm using the tree view so I can show multiple levels.  Up to 3 levels actually.

    My problem is that the widget only shows as everything expanded or nothing at all.  And when I drill down and click on a page, the page reloads and the whole thing collapses back up, forcing a user to drill down again to access a different page at that same level.

    I'd like it to work the way tree view did in 3.7, so that when I go to a page on the website, that area is expanded in the left.  If I navigate to a different area of the site, that area collapses, and the new area stays expanded.

    How can I achieve this in 4.2?

    And one more question.  Is there any way to make the Horizontal with drop down menus option and force it to be vertical?  I think you could do that in 3.7 as well.  There was an "orientation" parameter or something like that.

    Hello Orion,

    I was able to reproduce the problem. There is already such logged bug in our bugtracking system. Meanwhile you could use this custom implementation of RadTreeView that remembers the expand/collapse state. You will have to register this control in the toolbox, also drop a SitemapDataSource, set its ShowStartingNode to false.

    As for you other question - there is no such option for the NavigationControl yet.

    Hi, I'm finally getting back to this, and I don't see anything attached for the custom implementation of RadTreeView.  Can you please attach the file or files you were referring to?

    Thanks.

    Orion,

    I think I asked about achieving the same thing in another thread.  I wanted a vertical pop-out menu.  Boyan showed me how to do it in this thread.
