  124.     *padding:7px 2px 8px 2px/* IE7 Fix */  
  125. }  
  126. /* Forgot your password */  
  127. #loginForm span {  
  128.     text-align:center;  
  129.     display:block;  
  130.     padding:7px 0 4px 0;  
  131. }  
  132. #loginForm span a {

  136. }  
  137.  input:focus {  
  138.     outline:none;  
  139. }  

Now add a login.js file under the scripts folder in the application that contains some JavaScript code.

  1. $(function() {  
  2.     var button = $('#loginButton');  
  3.     var box = $('#loginBox');  
  4.     var form = $('#loginForm');  
  5.     button.removeAttr('href');  
  6.     button.mouseup(function(login) {  
  7.         box.toggle();  
  8.         button.toggleClass('active');  
  9.     });  
  10.     form.mouseup(function() {  
  11.         return false;  
  12.     });  
  13.     $(this).mouseup(function(login) {  
  14.         if(!($(login.target).parent('#loginButton').length > 0)) {  
  15.             button.removeClass('active');  
  16.             box.hide();  
  17.         }  
  18.     });  
  19. });  
  20.    

Now add the references for the CSS file and JavaScript files in the head section of the .aspx code. 

  1. <link href="css/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />  
  2.     <script src="Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>  
  3.     <script src="Scripts/login.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

  7.     <script src="Scripts/login.js" type="text/javascript"></script>  
  8.     <meta charset="utf8">  
  9.     <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">  
  10.     <title>jQuery Dropdown Login Freebie | The Finished Box</title>  
  11.     
  12. </head>  
  13. <body>  
  14.     <div id="bar">  
  15.         <div id="container">  
  16.             <!-- Login Starts Here -->  
  17.             <div id="loginContainer">  
  18.                 <a href="#" id="loginButton"><span>Login</span><em></em></a>  
  19.                 <div style="clear:both"></div>  
  20.                 <div id="loginBox">                 
  21.                     <form id="loginForm">  
  22.                         <fieldset id="body">  
  23.                             <fieldset>  
  24.                                 <label for="email">Email Address</label>  
  25.                                 <input type="text" name="email" id="email" />  
  26.                             </fieldset>  
  27.                             <fieldset>  
  28.                                 <label for="password">Password</label>  
  29.                                 <input type="password" name="password" id="password" />  
  30.                             </fieldset>  
  31.                             <input type="submit" id="login" value="Sign in" />  
  32.                             <label for="checkbox"><input type="checkbox" id="checkbox" />Remember me</label>  
  33.                         </fieldset>  
  34.                         <span><a href="#">Forgot your password?</a></span>  
  35.                     </form>  
  36.                 </div>  
  37.             </div>  
  38.             <!-- Login Ends Here -->  
  39.         </div>
