Bug report

Reproduction of the problem

Compare the renderings of the two ContextMenus below:

<div id="example1">Right click (Kendo UI ContextMenu)</div>
<br />
<br />
<div id="example2">Right click (MVC ContextMenu)</div>

<ul id="contextmenu1">
        target: "#example1",
                text: "Item1",
                text: "Item2",

    .Items(items =>

Current behavior

The item of the Kendo UI ContextMenu is rendered:

<li class="k-item k-menu-item k-first" role="menuitem" data-uid="d578b533-6933-416f-9624-96819ee95c45" aria-expanded="false">
    <span class="k-link k-menu-link">
       <span class="k-menu-link-text">Item1</span>

The item of the MVC ContextMenu is rendered:

<li class="k-item k-state-default k-menu-item k-first" role="menuitem" aria-expanded="false" id="contextmenu2_mn_active">
     <span class="k-link k-menu-link">Item1</span>

The additional span with class k-menu-link-text is missing in the MVC component.

Expected/desired behavior

Identical rendering

The copyAnchorStyles option of the ContextMenu Widget is not available in MVC wrapper. It's not always suitable to retrieve the anchor style and this option is enabled by default.

I've found a workaround thanks to another thread related to this particular option, but the best solution would have been to be able to set it directly with the wrapper.

The workaround consist to override the default value of this option for all ContextMenu widget (or I believe that's what it does):

  kendo.ui.ContextMenu.fn.options.copyAnchorStyles = false;


Thank you for your time.

I have problem with menu control. Sometimes its items are duplicated. To reproduce it do the following: 

- create a menu control;

- bind it to remote data source (to reproduce issue easier set some delay for server side method);

- hover on menu item (datasource request will start), fast leave menu item (don't wait until it open) and hover again (one more datasource request will start), leave it again (optional);

- wait some time until second request completed;

- open menu item.

As a result you will see duplicated menu items. This issue can be reproduced on your demo page

Could you please suggest me some workaround for this?
