Creating Custom Menu with Sub-Menus under Site Actions in SharePoint

6:04 PM    , ,
We can add custom menu in site actions with our most accessed URL's like "Quota Increase", "Owner change", etc. like the below screen. But, Why we need to do this? Well, It's a good user friendly addition, they don't need to search for a link to raise a quota increase or ownership change or etc. Security trimming - This will avoid incorrect persons raising the request and rejections. Mistyped URLs – This will avoid  wrong URL's being entered.  On clicking the link, we can direct them to the request form with auto filled URL's of the site. Here is the code: using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Text; using System.Web.UI.WebControls; using Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls; using Microsoft.SharePoint; namespace Crescent.SharePointSupport { public class SiteActionsMenu : WebControl { protected override void CreateChildControls() { SPContext .Current.Site.CatchAccessDeniedException =
