Default creating a dynamic menu using XML

I have a .net 3.5 web application. I need to create a menu control to be referenced by all the web pages of the application. The requirement here is that the menu should be changing dynamically as per the value selected from the menu by the user.
e.g: Menu items are: Home, Import, Export, Reports and Help.

On click of Home, all should be visible.
On click of Import only Home, Import and Help should be visible
and so on.
Also Reports have sub menus: Import Summary and Export summary report.

Also we need to create the menu using XML and not the database table.

Any suggestions?? Please let me know soon.

Default Menu control in asp.net


We have a menu user control with menu items and the items having sub items. As per the subitem selected, the user interface will change. So I would like to capture which sub item has been clicked.

The issue is that 1st the page_load event of the web page executes and then the user control cick event. I have written the code to capture the Menu sub item click in the user control click event. Since the page_load of web page executes 1st, it doesnt notices which subitem has been selected.

Any suggestions as to how can i record that value? or is there any way to record that in the page_load (or any othre event) on the web page itself...

Please reply ASAP.
