When on lower resolution (collapsed menu), there's a continuous execution of the hover when collapsing the first menu and then steps on to the next menu. It becomes blinking. I would suggest to put .delay() between .stop() and .fadeIn()/.fadeOut().

what if i have multiple dropdown menu? how im going to align the list in every menu?

Joel () - 4 years ago - Reply 0


Yes definitely. Swap $('.dropdown-menu', this).fadeIn("fast"); and $('.dropdown-menu', this).fadeOut("fast"); with $('.dropdown-menu', this).stop( true, true ).fadeIn("fast"); and $('.dropdown-menu', this).stop( true, true ).fadeOut("fast"); to get rid of the common problem with animation queues.

I would insert a .stop() before the fade effect.
