    Im trying to create a side navigation control but running into some difficulty. im trying to attach a datasource to a NavigationContainer. But I get an object reference cannot be set to an instance error on navigationContainer.DataBind(). 


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                var dataSource = new Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.NavigationControls.SitefinitySiteMapDataSource();
                dataSource.Provider = SiteMapBase.GetCurrentProvider();
                navigationContainer.DataSource = dataSource;

    Hi Phil,

    Need a bit more info to tell what's going on. Can you please place your full code on dropbox or some other accessible online repository? 

    In the meantime can you please take a look at the following blog post and see if it can shed any light on your issue?

    Custom Navigation based on a Custom Security

    There is sample code you can download that will hopefully guide you in the process of setting your custom nav up.
