Working with Site Maps

You can create simple site maps from a text outline using the Site Map control.

Create a Site Map

Add a “Site Map” control from the UI Library to the canvas.

Edit the control by double-clicking or selecting it and pressing the Enter key. Edit the outline to create parent-child relationships. Each line represents a box (or page/node) in your sitemap. Use hyphens to indent child boxes beneath a parent. Here’s an example:

- Products
-- Product 1
-- Product 2
- About Us\rCompany
- Support
- Blog

This is what the outline above looks like:

Notes and Options

  • Single Tree Support: Site Map expects the first line to be the top-most parent, and only one of these can exist because it only makes a single tree. If you want to make multiple trees, just add more Site Map controls.
  • Multi-Line Text: You can use \r to create line returns on text in a box like this: About\rUs
  • You can’t resize Site Maps, but if you are unable to view the entire map on your canvas you can try showing one of the nodes expanded in a separate Site Map, as shown below.
