Multi Level Taxonomy Navigator

May 19, 2009 at 6:00 AM

If Taxonomy navigator has mulity levels we can see to on SFE. But it not avaible in web part level. But in RBC ( Navigator) web parts display taxonomy as a navigator. But it not displaying tree view. How we can get tree-view for the taxonomy navigator like in SFE ?

Hi Thiwanka,

The navigators are not coded to show a taxonomy as a tree. You have to build your own tree navigator by extending the espnavigator webpart, you  need to parse the flat taxonomy and render it as one of the three possible options

1) SPTreeview.

2) Use jquery tree

3) use dtree to create your tree similar to the one you see in FAST SFE.

Hope this helps.

A simple common tree isn't very "friendly".

How about doing something like this?|31&c=1024273
