Making an existing ASP.NET menu dynamic

You can make an existing ASP.NET menu object dynamic. ASP.NET menu objects include the DropDownList and ListBox controls.

Before you begin, you must define a DataSet or other source of dynamic content for the menu. For more information, see Defining a recordset.

To make an existing DropDownList or ListBox object dynamic:

  1. In Design view, select the DropDownList or ListBox object you want to make dynamic.
  2. In the Property inspector, click the List Items button.

    The List Items dialog box appears.

  3. Select the From Database option and complete the dialog box.

    For more information, see Setting the List Items dialog box options.
