    Hi,

    Please refer to the attached image -  I've modified the alignment of the RadTextbox controls in the Telerik Demo for RadMenu to reproduce the issue to make sure that it is not my implementation that is causing the problem.

    The concern is that if a Textbox has focus set on it (cursor blinking inside the textbox), and radmenu is hovered-upon, the Rad SubMenu opens but the blinking cursor inside the Textbox is visible even across the radmenu layer.

    The issue has been reported by the customer when we were using ComponentArt Menu, and now we migrated to Telerik Menu but the issue persists with Telerik also.
    Any idea how this can be fixed - workaround is acceptable unless it is to be applied on Menu and not on every textbox in application ;)

    Wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Thanks and Best Regards,
    Veenu Munjal

    Hi Veenu,

    Unfortunately this is an IE6 and IE7 specific bug that can't be fixed as far as we know. The caret is rendered separately from the rest of the page and doesn't account for if the input is visible or not. The only workaround possible is to blur the input element on menu open and then return its focus on close. Another problem is that you can't check which element is focused by javascript, you have to attach focus/blur handlers on all of them.
