Remarks

By default, a dynamic menu automatically disappears after a certain duration when the mouse pointer is no longer positioned over the menu. Use the DisappearAfter property to specify the duration.

Note

A dynamic menu disappears immediately if the user clicks outside of the menu.

You can also specify that a dynamic menu should never automatically disappear by setting this property to -1. In this case, the dynamic menu item will disappear only when the user clicks outside the menu.

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and ASP.NET Themes and Skins.
