     if (!IsPostBack) {
            CreateNavBar();
     }
}

void CreateNavBar() {
     string[] GroupTexts = { "Home", "News", "Products", "Client Center" };
     foreach (string Text in GroupTexts) {
          MyASPxNavBar.Groups.Add(Text);
     }
     MyASPxNavBar.Groups.FindByText("News").Items.Add("Subscriptions");
     NavBarItem[] ProductsItems = { 
          new NavBarItem("Downloads"), 
          new NavBarItem("Support"), 
          new NavBarItem("Order") 
     };
     MyASPxNavBar.Groups.FindByText("Products").Items.Add(ProductsItems);
}

//Add a new group
protected void btnAddGroup_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) {
     if (tbItemName.Text != "") {
          MyASPxNavBar.Groups.Add(tbItemName.Text);
     }
