13. Creating Silverlight Navigation

SHAREPOINT 2010 INCLUDES A BUILT-IN NAVIGATION SYSTEM that greatly simplifies managing SharePoint site collections and sites. In this chapter you learn how SharePoint navigation works, how to change the links rendered by navigation, and most importantly, how to use Silverlight to render the navigation for end users.

Out-of-the-Box Navigation

First of all, it’s important to note that although SharePoint generates navigation dynamically based on sites, lists, and pages, it always does this within a single site collection. Navigation outside of a site collection must be configured manually by adding links to the navigation structure or by building a custom site map provider, as explained in the next section.
