CollapsiblePanelExtender 

The CollapsiblePanelExtender control is a very flexible extender that allows you to easily add a collapsible section to your webpage.

A panel control will expand and collapse using a label control or linkbutton control.

Step 7 : Drag two panels from the standard toolbox and drop them on the page and define all the div properties.

            <asp:Image ID="Image1" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/DO.jpg" Height="50px" Width="50px" />
        </div>
                <div style="clear:both"></div>
                </div>
                </asp:Panel>
        <asp:Panel ID="Panel2" runat="server">
        <table align="center" width="100%">
        <tr>
        <td class="style2"></td>
        <td class="style2">

            cursor: pointer;
            border: solid 1px #c0c0c0;
            width:30%;
            }
        .style2

        }
    </style
