Menu - Allow full control over click and hover events
Kendo UI is so customizable, which is why I'm transitioning away from DHTMLX, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile. The Menu currently allows some control over click events, but I think, in keeping with Kendo's current customization options, full control over click and hover events would be a great thing to have.

I was able to mock this by commenting out 1 line of code, so to add as a configure option, this should be pretty easy to implement.

I'll pass your feedback to the devteam to be taken into consideration.

I tried finding this line of code but could not find it. Looks like its changed in the new version. Now I do not have any option to open the Sub menu items only on click instead of hover. Suggesting to provide full control to handle menu and submenu. there should be an option of openOnClick for submenu as well.
