    i'm trying to set duration for the expand/collapse of the HorizontalMenuDropDown and the parameters we use seem to have no effect, do you know of any way to slow down the expand/collapse of this control?

     HorizontalMenuDropDown menu is using RadMenu to render the navigation. To change the speed at which the menu collapses and expands refer to this RadMenu documentation. There is no direct way to modify the built in navigation template to add the needed properties to control the animation speed 

    <telerik:RadMenu ID="RadMenu1" runat="server">
        <ExpandAnimation Type="OutQuart" Duration="300" />
        <CollapseAnimation Type="OutQuint" Duration="200" />
    so the solution is to create a custom navigation control using RadMenu where the animation properties can be added.
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.NavigationControls" TagPrefix="sfMap" %>
    <sfMap:SitefinitySiteMapDataSource ID="SM" runat="server" ShowStartingNode="false" />
    <telerik:RadMenu runat="server" ID="menu" DataSourceID="SM" Flow="Vertical"></telerik:RadMenu>
    Bind the RadMenu to SitefinitySitemapDataSource. Then register a new navigation widget with this control as described here.Regards,
