I am using RadMenu loaded dynamically if a user is in FF2 or lower or any IE version. None of these browsers can deal with my pure CSS hover based menu which works perfectly in a decent browser. The RadMenu is adding a huge 500k to my page.
Once the menu is loaded (and it loads ok with since the Q2 build fixed the locking up on first load / postback) performance in ok in FF2 and just about acceptable in IE.
What I would like to do is make sure that after the menu is loaded for the first time the browsers are caching as much as possible. There is very little in the help and online about optimising RadMenu apart from using web service and turning off viewstate.
I am not using any funky animation - just show and hide. Can I stop these files from being loaded if I don't need them?
Increase size of menu item vertically
In my CSS menu if the item text is wider than the standard width of the menu item then the text goes down to another line and the menu item expands vertically. With my RadMenu the text breaks out of the menu item horizontally. Yes, I could trim the item text but that is no good. How can i get the menu item to expand vertically to fix in longer menu items text?
