    Hi all,

    I'm a complete beginner with Telerik so I hope I explain this right.  

    I have a RadMenu set up where you can mouseover a RadMenuItem and it calls an AJAX method to fetch a description, which then gets displayed in a label at the bottom of the menu.  It's something along the lines of this Telerik demo with the map, except the event is onmouseover and not onclick.  This all works great. 

    However, you can imagine if someone is mousing down a menu of say 20 items, you only want the Ajax call to fire when the user rests on a particular menu item e.g. for say at least 0.25 seconds.  That way I'm not sending 20 Ajax calls off unnecessarily.

    Is there a way to delay the firing of the Ajax call?

    In general the functionality that you are trying to achieve is a custom scenario and we do not officially provide support for it. However, there are two properties - set_collapseDelay/get_collapseDelay and set_expandDelay/get_expandDelay - of the RadMenu control that you might try using in your scenario. You can use jQuery in order to implement the desired functionality. Here are few forum post that I believe will be helpful:
