    Hello Vaiga,

    Since our default navigation controls are based on the RadControls, you can use these controls to create a custom navigation - for example RadMenu, RadTabStrip, RadTreeView, RadPanelBar etc. Simply add the chosen control to an .ascx file and use SitefinitySiteMapDataSource to bind it to pages in Sitefinity. Here's an example control that uses RadPanelBar:

    <%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="PanelBar.ascx.cs" Inherits="SitefinityWebApp.Controls.PanelBar" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" %>
    <asp:SiteMapDataSource ID="SiteMapDataSource1" runat="server" ShowStartingNode="false" />
    <telerik:RadPanelBar ID="RadPanelBar1" runat="server"

    Kind regards,
