Unbound Mode Overview

In an Unbound Mode, the ASPxNavBar control is not bound to any data source, and you can populate it with items manually. An unbound mode implies that the DataSourceID property is set to null.

Groups and items can be manually created at design time via the Groups Editor and Items Editor respectively, or directly in an aspx file.

At runtime, you can create groups via the NavBarGroupCollection.Add methods, and create items via the NavBarItemCollection.Add methods.
