    Is there a way to make the Navigation Control behave like SiteMenu Control in 3.7?

    For Navigation Control here is what I did -
    I choose the navigation type to Tree (Vertical with Sub-Levels, as I have Page Groups and Individual Pages inside the Page Group).
    Required Behavior -
    If a node in the Sub-Level is clicked the Node list doesn't stay open. It collapses back to its initial state. I want the current page's parent to be open.

    Can anyone guide me on how to obtain the above said behavior.?

    Hi Venkata,

    The problem is when you set NavigateUrl of the item the control loses its state. That's why you need to find a way to persist the value of the selected node as an attribute or cookie and expand it properly after the redirect occurs reading the cookie value. Please take a look at the attached template which you can map for your Navigation control in Sitefinity. I have attached a short video demonstrating how to set this up and a demo of the result. Please inform us if you have any additional questions.
