I am using it, it is poor menu with Arabic and have problem with CSS
Feels like a great scam

I'm using it for some time now, and its not good if you have complicated site, may be its good if you have tiny site where you just display some data in datagrid and need a menu.
Well - let me say it. it feels like a great scam. I'll explain it why.
1. Almost every control in their framework has some problem. you wont know it until you use it for complicated pages.
2. it's fine if they have problems and bugs. but you'll have to pay them to get fixes. nothing is free. "ITS A KNOWN ISSUE" THAT'S WHAT YOU'LL SEE EVERYWHERE.and they wont fix it. you'll have to buy a new subscription for a year to get updates as they will only include it in new version.
3. if not updates then at least support should be free, but not its not free either. they want you to buy support so they have "KNOWN ISSUES", which we can not solve as we don't have code.
4. check out forums, most of the issue are pending and haven't been answered for long time.
Please dont buy it. unless you want to experience HELL.

We've been using the Component Art Menu for 2 - 3 years now. It's very easy to use from a developer standpoint. Moving from version 1 to version 2 was also a success and decreased the amount of data downloaded to our clients by 50%, essentially speeding up our application. We put quite a bit of time into choosing a third party control menu and we're satisfied that we made the best choice possible.
Not cheap, but worth every dime!

What an outstanding suite of menu controls! They work great, even in a cross-browser evironment. They are easy to program against, and least, but not least, they look great! The latter being important to achieve an overall quality look and feel for a well designed and developed web site. Just get them!

I have used a number of menu controls in the past. From building my own DHTML, using some of the excellent free menus out there, and many commercial packages such as ComponentArt's WebUI Menu component (formerly ASPnetMenu). While I was able to do what I needed to using the free or self built menus, they all lacked one major item...ease of use! Building corporate sites and web applications requires you to develop as fast as possible. You don't want to be worried about your navigation tool and ComponentArt takes that burden away in an outstanding professionally built web control.
We all know what menus can do, so I won't talk about that. ComponentArt had hit gold with ASPnetMenu. Having a source license I could see the quality in their coding practices. Everything was easy to follow and change as I needed.
With the latest version, Menu 2.0, the folks at ComponentArt have made a great control even better. Here are some of the new, subtle, but very important additions made:

CYBERAKT could write the book on best practices for developing user controls for .NET. I am thorougly impressed with the design and engineering that went into this product and I think that other control developers should take a serious look at their approach. The ASPNetMenu control is a must-have in every .NET developers arsenal. Looking for more? Check out their latest: www.richcontentrotator.com. Poised to be #2 on the download ranks :)

This is an outstanding product. Very flexible, many different ways to configure and it comes with more than enough samples to show you all different ways the product can be used. The only drawback is that it doesn't come in a VB version as well. Otherwise it's a great deal if you're looking for an easy to configure menu system for your ASP.NET project.

We've used this control on a number of projects and it's never failed to deliver. It's installation is clean and simple (unlike much of the competion!) and it works.
Whilst it's simple to use, it is worthwhile getting to know the product - you can achieve some great visuals with it with a bit of time and effort.
Overall we've been very satisfied with the product and with Cyberakt and use it by default for all of our commercial projects.
Has many features, but is lacking in some areas.

Everyone seems to love this control, and perhaps I'm just not using it correctly. But I find many inconsistencies in its API. For example, does a postback occur when you assign a menu item a URL? Sometimes it seems to do so, sometimes not. Maybe there was a change in the most recent version. Also, it uses a lot of non-standard property names. Not a huge deal, but kind of annoying when you can't find a common property that is in most server controls. For example, there is no Enabled property, but there is an IsDisabled property. I would have also like it if you could assign events to invidual menu items rather than just the whole menu itself and having to use a switch...case statement to figure out which menu item was clicked. As it is, you have one huge method that looks like very "old school" procedural code to handle many different tasks. Finally, while it has great support for CSS properties in its normal and mouseover states, if you disable an item, there is no CSS property for

We were looking for a menu program for our new dot.net web site and have decided to go with ASP.netMenu for its professional look, practical setup and simple maintenance. It provides us a horizontal menu with optional drop-downs and a vertical menu that is dymanically populated from an SQL database. Each with hyperlinks to the appropriate pages. Need to modify the menu? Change the text based XML file with notepad. Simple and professional! Want a mouseover? The CSS file (samples provided) does it in 12 short lines of text such as "background-color:lightyellow;". Perfect for DotNet webs! Thank you Cyberakt. Nice product! Wish we had something like this for the ASP site 3 years ago.
Perfect control & perfect support!!!

After playing with this control for a while, I think it is (almost) perfect. All the webapplications I build for customers rely heavily on ASP.NET Menu. I even created a menu with the possibility to extend and/or change the menu itself. Every customer wants it!
And Jovan? He is the best technical support I've ever met... Very quick and he provides the right answers ;-) Something which seems logical but unfortunatelly isn't...
Keep up the good work.

ASP.NET is simply awesome technology. It is however at the same time quit overwhelming to learn. This control is exactly what I needed. I have been builing this type of menus in DHTML for a couple of years. Now all I have to do is drag the control onto my aspx pages, modify the XML and CSS and BAM, I'm done. Truly awesome.
Finally, the support. Jovan has been exceptional at helping me out with the control

We had previously used another major name menu which required 2 days to setup and still wouldn't display over dropdownlists. In 60 mins I had the ASP.NET Menu up on our site and it looked so much better than the other menu. CYBERAKT support is awesome and fast. The other company always told us it was the browsers fault, these guys work with you to solve the issue, not throw the blame. I developed a dynamic menu from SQL server that has an XP look in a little over 2 hours. If you want to spend time developing and not maintaining your menu control, buy this one. This menu Rocks!!!!
