Hi guys.
I need help with DDR menu.

This is my situation

Homepage
- Page1
--Subpage11
--Subpage12
- Page2
-- Subpage21
-- Subpage22

I need DDR menu on pages Page1 and Page2 to show its siblings.

What I tried to do is get parent tab name and feed it to ddr NodeSelector.

   string parentName = ((DotNetNuke.Entities.Tabs.TabInfo)PortalSettings.ActiveTab.BreadCrumbs[ 0 ]).TabName;

   <dnn:MENU ID="navPrimary" MenuStyle="nav/simple" NodeSelector="<%=parentName%>" runat="server"></dnn:MENU>

Variable parentName gets proper name, but DDR doesn't render anything. I cannot do with IDs as site has to be multilanguage and pagename will be same across all languages.

Can be done this way or I should seek another way of solving this problem.

Thanks for help!

Thank you Timo.

Sorry for late response, but just got back from vacation :)


I tried your solution but I get error:
error CS0103: The name 'parentName' does not exist in the current context

I still can render it with <%=parentName%>


What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for help!
