Floating menus overlapping !

Hi


I have a 4x3 table of images.
When the user move the mouse over an image, a floating menu will appear so the user can select a menu item.

The code is working fine if I only have one cell.

However, I have a 12 adjacent cells in a 3x4 table. The problem is when the user move the mouse in order to select a floating menu item, the mouse eventually will move over another cell (image) and will cause the other cell to show its floating menu.

Is there a way to avoid that? like to disable all the other floating menus if there is an open menu?  

I put the whole project together in one zip file. You can unzip it and figure out the problem!

Do you need the 2 second timeout?

If you change: var timeout = 2000; to var timeout = 0;

It will only display one at a time.

If I set the timeout = 0 the user won't able to catch the floating menu!

I found the solution and it is so simple!
I just added a flag which equals 0 initially.
When I open a menu I check if the flag value = 0, in that case I put flag = 1 and open the floating menu. otherwise I do not open the floating menu.
When I close a menu I put the flag value = 0 again!

I have attached the same file after applying the solution
