      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      Java Menus are very sensitive to mouse events than Microsoft applications like MS Excell.
      After Submenu is expanded, then to reach to the particulat menuitem, you have to move the mouse towards right hand side direction and then downwards to the particular menuitem.

      But in case of MS Excell, after submenu is popped up , you can reach to particular menuitem digonaly.

      I have video file to show comparision between SwingSetDemo2.jar application and Microsoft Excell Application. But I am not able to find any way to send attachment with this report.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      This will make menus user friendly. Most of the users are used to Micorsoft applications and they wish to have menu navigation like Microsoft applications.


      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      There is no workaround possible. MenuSelections are handled by MenuSelectionManager. You can not specify your own MenuselectionManager. Mouse events are handled by Handler class in BasicMenuItemUI.java . I think we can add some hack code. But there is no way to specify the Handler. This is the inner class of BasicMenuItemUI.java
