Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a new website, and add all of the files in the above folder into it.

The website structure is like this:

ASP.NET 4.0 - Visual Basic exercise - Site navigation tools (image 1)

The menu structure of this website

Create a site map file to reflect this structure (it should be obvious what the relevant files are called).

Create and format a menu to show this structure (it absolutely does not have to look like the one shown below, which used autoformatting followed by a few manual tweaks):

ASP.NET 4.0 - Visual Basic exercise - Site navigation tools (image 2)

A diagram showing what your menu COULD look like

Add in a tree view (again, it absolutely doesn't have to look like the one shown below):

ASP.NET 4.0 - Visual Basic exercise - Site navigation tools (image 3)

This was created using the FAQ autoformat

Finally, create a SiteMapPath control:

ASP.NET 4.0 - Visual Basic exercise - Site navigation tools (image 4)

This is what your breadcrumbs will look like in the vanilla version

Save and close down your files!
