Since the Update to 5.19 the Code - menuOpenDelay - dosent effect anything.

I set this from 150 to 500 and it is allways as fast as it was before.

Version 5.21 changes nothing to this Problem.

500 might not be enough to make it noticeable, try 1000. I think those are milliseconds. Also, if you have a horizontal menu it does not affect the first level submenus, only the second level and down. It will affect the 1st level in a vertical menu.

Thanks for your Answer

Bevor the Update it works with the first level menu in horizontal menu

and now it only works in submenu.

Something has changed in the Code, ist it posible that it will work in horizontal menu.

You're not talking about the actual main menu are you? You mean the 1st submenu level, right? Yes, it changed after version 5.15. I don't know if it will be changed again. You can sort of get that, but only for IE5.5 or higher browser. In the 1st level submenus you could set
overfilter="Fade(overlap=1.00, duration=2.5)";
Having it set to 2.5 would make it fade in pretty slow. But, it is a fade in, not just a wait until it opens and it only works in Internet Explorer.

I'd really like to see that delay back for the first level, too.

I would also like to thank you for the upcomming additon of "horizontalMenuDelay=true;".

This was only of my biggest complaints from endusers.

If there mouse just brushed the Main Menu the menu would appear.
Using _menuOpenDelay= 500 gave them appox. a 1/2 second buffer.
