RadNavigation Breadcrumb
When building Responsive webpages the Telerik navigation control to use is RadNavigation because it properly resizes when the screen is rotated unlike the RadMenu.  

However RadNavigation doesn't seem to have a way to see my current location within a website which is where the breadcrumb come is.

The addition of breadcrumb integration with RadNavigation would benefit Responsive web designer using the Telerik controls.

Hi there,

The requested functionality is currently not supported by the component. Since this is a nice feature request, could you please vote for it? If it becomes a popular request, we will consider its implementation.

Of course, you can try to implement this feature yourself. When navigating to another regular page, it is reloaded every time. Therefore, you can use some logic similar to the following approach to preserve or control the selection:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (!IsPostBack)
        string path = HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.AbsolutePath;
        FileInfo info = new FileInfo(path);
        if (info.Name.ToLower() == "default.aspx")
            SiteNavigationMenu.FindNodeByText("A18 Home").Selected = true;
        else if (info.Name.ToLower() == "report.aspx")
            SiteNavigationMenu.FindNodeByText("Report").Selected = true;

You can find another example at Preserve RadNavigation selection across content pages.

I was also trying to do similar thing like its available for RadMenu here


RadNavigation also doesn't have HighlightPath() as available in RadMenu. Is there any solution to integrate breadcrumb with navigation and also highlight the menu based on current url.
