SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

It seems the Client Object Model is stripping out the "query" part of a URL stored inside the NavigationNode elements. I am wondering if this is a bug or perhaps I am doing something wrong?

Consider the following example. Site navigation is configured with a single item under the global navigation called Affordability and a URL that contains ?FilterField1=ContentType&FilterValue1=Affordability at the end of URL for the All Items view:

var root = "https://server/sites/site/";
var ctx = new ClientContext(root);
var web = ctx.Web;
var nav = web.Navigation;
var bar = nav.TopNavigationBar;

// use the TopNavigationBar collection
Console.Write(bar[0].Title + "=" + bar[0].Url);
// outputs "Affordability=/sites/sites/Lists/List/AllItems.aspx"

It seems to strip off the actual filtering part of the URL. It is still present in the Navigation settings, and clicking the link in the Web UI works just fine. I understand I could create views for all the different filtering criteria - that isn't really what I am looking for though. I am curious to see if this is a bug in the Client Object Model (maybe I somehow have an old version?) or perhaps I doing something wrong?
