    I am using a RadTreeViewContextMenu in a RadTreeView like so:

    ASP.NET Code:

    <telerik:RadTreeView ID="RadTreeView1" runat="server" OnClientContextMenuShowing="ContextMenuShowing">
            <telerik:RadTreeViewContextMenu ID="RadTreeViewContextMenu1" CssClass="context-menu">
                    <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Item1" Value="1">
                            <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Item One" />
                            <%-- Some other controls here --%>

    CSS Code:

    .context-menu .rmText
        font-size: 0.9em;
    .context-menu .rmDisabled
        color: #aaa !important;
        background-color: transparent !important;
    .context-menu .rmItem:hover,
    .context-menu .rmFirst:hover,
    .context-menu .rmLast:hover
        cursor: default !important;
        background-color: #FF9900 !important;
    .context-menu .rmSeparator:hover
        background-color: transparent !important;

    When I disable a context menu item (using the OnClientContextMenuShowing event) I am having problems getting the menu item to not be highlighted on mouse over. However, I can get the text color to change (shown in css code as .context-menu .rmDisabled
    ). I've also tried adding the rmDisabled css class to the disabled li tag element in my JavaScript event handler for OnClientContextMenuShowing event like so:

    function ContextMenuShowing(sender, args) {
        var menuItems = args.get_menu().get_items();
        var isNodeEnabled = treeNode.get_attributes().getAttribute("isEnabled");
        for (var i = 0; i < menuItems.get_count(); i++) {
            var menuItem = menuItems.getItem(i);
            menuItem.set_enabled(isNodeEnabled == "True");
            if (!menuItem.get_enabled()) {

    But this only works when I remove the !important declaration from the context-menu .rmItem:hover, .context-menu .rmFirst:hover and, .context-menu .rmLast:hover class definitions, which in turn causes the first and last items to not be highlighted on mouse over (hover). How can I get the menu item to not be highlighted on mouse over?

    Please find attached a sample project that implements the following scenario - first and last menu item from RadTreeView context menu are highlighted in orange when hovered.
    All other items ( in this case only the middle one) are not highlighted when hovered.

    If this is not the right scenario, please explain what exactly you are trying to achieve.
