How to create drop down menu for login and signup using jQuery and CSS in asp.net

Introduction: In this article I am going to demonstrate with example how to create stylish drop down menu for log in / sign in and signup / register that open and close on click using jQuery and CSS in asp.net.

jquery and css dropdown example in asp.net

 Description: In previous articles i explained  Ajax Accordion example to create Vertical DropDown menu in asp.net and  jQuery stylish dropdown menu example like Facebook,Linkedin in asp.net. and How to show tool tip message using CSS and HTML in asp.net website and Show Validation guidelines in web forms using JavaScript in Asp.net and Highlight gridview row on mouse over using CSS and CustomValidator validation control with example and jQuery to validate file extension and upload image file in asp.net C#,Vb.Net.
Now i will explain the easiest way to create this drop down menu using jQuery and CSS.
I have just demonstrated the drop down menu on log in click. Similarly you can open signup form on sign up click. But for now simply give the link of your signup/registration from on sign up click. You can also add more tabs easily.It is widely used on all the major websites because of its innovative look and ease. 

 Implementation: Let's create an application to see the menu in working. 
  •  First of all create a style sheet to give the styles to the drop down menu we are going to create. So to add style sheet in the website go to website menu and click Add New item.. -> Select StyleSheet.css and leave the name as it is (i.e Stylesheet.css)
  • In the Stylesheet.css paste the following and save the file.

nav ul {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
  position: relative;
  float: right;
  background: #eee;
  border-bottom: 1px solid #fff;
  -moz-border-radius: 3px;
  -webkit-border-radius: 3px;
  border-radius: 3px;   
}

</script>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function(){
        $('#login-trigger').click(function () {
                                $(this).next('#login-content').slideToggle();
                                $(this).toggleClass('active');                                                                    
                               
                                if ($(this).hasClass('active')) $(this).find('span').html('&#x25B2;')
                                                else $(this).find('span').html('&#x25BC;')
                                })
});
</script>

  •  In the <form> tag of the design page(.aspx) design the page as:
