public string Path { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


A String value that is the textual representation of the current BreadCrumbEdit nodes path.


The Path property returns the string value that specifies the full path within this BreadCrumbEdit that needs to be traveled starting from the first root node to get to the last currently selected node. Nodes, whose BreadCrumbNode.Persistent property equals true, are not included in the BreadCrumbEdit path.

You can use the Path property to manually specify the editor's path with new, yet undefined nodes. In this case, handle the RepositoryItemBreadCrumbEdit.ValidatePath, RepositoryItemBreadCrumbEdit.NewNodeAdding and RepositoryItemBreadCrumbEdit.QueryChildNodes events to create and dynamically populate these nodes. See the Breadcrumb Edit Control topic for an example.
