Hi,

I'm not good in javascript (spelling english too ;-)) but i want to improve this dropdown-script.
The hidden div container is displayed by hovering the link without delay. But i want the div container displayed after X-milliseconds.

I'm thankful for any help!

var dropdowncontent={
disableanchorlink: true, //when user clicks on anchor link, should link itself be disabled (always true if "revealbehavior" above set to "click")
hidedivmouseout: [true, 200], //Set hiding behavior within Drop Down DIV itself: [hide_div_onmouseover?, miliseconds_before_hiding]
ajaxloadingmsg: "Loading content. Please wait...", //HTML to show while ajax page is being feched, if applicable
ajaxbustcache: true, //Bust cache when fetching Ajax pages?
