    In my project I am using RadTabStrip and sitemapdatasource.
    <asp:SiteMapDataSource ID="SiteMapDataSource1" runat="server" ShowStartingNode="false"
        StartFromCurrentNode="false"  StartingNodeOffset="1"  />
     <telerik:RadTabStrip runat="server" ID="RadTabstrip1" MaxDataBindDepth="2" Skin="" >

    Can you please give me a sample code for building the navigation menu using the SiteMapNodeCollection.
    I am attaching the design of the menu. 

    Any help will be appreciated.Its an urgent requirement.
    Thanks in advance

    Hello Sheeja,

    The problem in your code is that you are not setting DataSourceID of the RadTabStrip control

    <asp:SiteMapDataSource ID="SiteMapDataSource1" runat="server" ShowStartingNode="false"
        StartFromCurrentNode="false"   />
     <telerik:RadTabStrip runat="server" DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource1" ID="RadTabstrip1" MaxDataBindDepth="2" Skin="Vista" >

    Here is a sample code that populates the RadTabStrip control from the SiteMapNode manually

          /// <summary>
        /// Recursively populates the TabStrip with the needed pages (nodes) using pNode as root.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="pNode">The root node (later used as the current root node in the recursion).</param>
        /// <param name="levelDepth">The current depth of the tree of tabs.</param>
        private void FillTabStrip(SiteMapNode pNode, RadTabCollection pTabs, int levelDepth)
            int levelPosition = -1;
            foreach (CmsSiteMapNode node in pNode.ChildNodes)
                RadTab tab = new RadTab(node.Title);
                tab.NavigateUrl = node.Url;
                if (node == SiteMap.CurrentNode)
                    tab.Selected = true;
                    tab.Owner.SelectedIndex = levelPosition;
                if (levelDepth > this.HierarchyDepth && this.HierarchyDepth != -1)
                    tab.Visible = false;
                if (levelDepth == this.HideLevel)
                    tab.Style.Add(HtmlTextWriterStyle.Display, "none");
                this.FillTabStrip(node, tab.Tabs, levelDepth + 1);
                if (tab.SelectedIndex >= 0)
                    tab.Owner.SelectedIndex = levelPosition;
