Introduction

This article will show you how to create a rotating tab menu using jQuery and CSS step by step. We will create a menu with small icons that will rotate when hovering. Also, we will make the menu item expand and reveal some menu content, like links or a search box. jQuery is a great tool that helps our imagination turn ideas into reality. We can do almost everything we can think of with the help of this useful tool.

Step 1: First we have to create a Web Application.

  • Go to Visual Studio 2010.
  • New--> And select the Web Application.
  • Give whatever name you want to.
  • Click OK.

Step 2: Secondly you have to add a new page to the website.

  • Go to the Solution Explorer.
  • Right-click on the project name.
  • Select add new item.
  • Add new web page and give it a name.
  • Click OK.

Step 3:  Now add some image in the "Images" folder of the project.

Step 4: Than add the style.css files to your Styles folder.

Right-click on style.css files -> copy and paste it inside <Head> section of your page. The reference is look like as.

<link href="Styles/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

Step 5: In this step add the CSS code inside the <style> tag and place it into the <head> section of your page.

<style type="text/css">

        *

        {

            margin: 0;

            padding: 0;

            background: #BF3EFF;

        }

        .title

        {

            width: 703px;

            height: 144px;

            position: absolute;

            top: 0px;

            left: 0px;

            background: #BF3EFF;

        }

        a.back

        {

            background: #BF3EFF ;

            position: fixed;

            width: 150px;

            height: 27px;

            outline: none;

            bottom: 0px;

            left: 0px;

        }

</style>

Step 6: In this step we have to write the script reference to the aspx page; let us see from where you have to write the script code.

Right-click on the selected files respectively -> copy and paste it inside <Head> section of your page; see step 7.

Step 7: Let us see the script code which you have to add inside the <script></script> tags and that will be placed either in the <head> section or the <body> section as you prefer.
 

<script src="Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script src="Scripts/jquery-animate-css-rotate-scale.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script src="Scripts/jquery-css-transform.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


Step 8:
In this step we have to write the JavaScript code in the <body> tag of our page which is given below.

<script type="text/javascript">

        $('.item').hover(

                function () {

                    var $this = $(this);

                    expand($this);

                },

                function () {

                    var $this = $(this);

                    collapse($this);

                }

            );

        function expand($elem) {

            var angle = 0;

            var t = setInterval(function () {

                if (angle == 1440) {

                    clearInterval(t);

                    return;

                }

                angle += 40;

                $('.link', $elem).stop().animate({ rotate: '+=-40deg' }, 0);

            }, 10);

            $elem.stop().animate({ width: '268px' }, 1000)

                .find('.item_content').fadeIn(400, function () {

                    $(this).find('p').stop(true, true).fadeIn(600);

                });

        }

        function collapse($elem) {

            var angle = 1440;

            var t = setInterval(function () {

                if (angle == 0) {

                    clearInterval(t);

                    return;

                }

                angle -= 40;

                $('.link', $elem).stop().animate({ rotate: '+=40deg' }, 0);

            }, 10);

            $elem.stop().animate({ width: '52px' }, 1000)

                .find('.item_content').stop(true, true).fadeOut().find('p').stop(true, true).fadeOut();

        }

</script>

Step 9: In this step you will see the body code of the Default2.aspx page which is given below.

Code:

<body>

    <div class="menu">

        <div class="item">

            <a class="link icon_mail"></a>

            <div class="item_content">

                <h2>

                    Contact us</h2>

                <p>

                    <a href="#">Mahesh Chand</a> <a href="#">Akshay Teotia</a>

                </p>

            </div>

        </div>

        <div class="item">

            <a class="link icon_help"></a>

            <div class="item_content">

                <h2>

                    Consulting</h2>

                <p>

                    <a href="http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/Consulting/">Why Us</a>

                </p>

            </div>

        </div>

        <div class="item">

            <div class="item_content">

                    <a href="">Go</a>

                </p>

            </div>

        </div>

        <div class="item">

            <a class="link icon_home"></a>

            <div class="item_content">

                <h2>

                    C# Corner Home

                </h2>

                <p>

                    <a href="http://www.tympanus.net/">Start</a>

                </p>

            </div>

        </div>

    </div>

    <script type="text/javascript">

        $('.item').hover(

                function () {

                    var $this = $(this);

                    expand($this);

                },

                function () {

                    var $this = $(this);

                    collapse($this);

                }

            );

        function expand($elem) {

            var angle = 0;

            var t = setInterval(function () {

                if (angle == 1440) {

                    clearInterval(t);

                    return;

                }

                angle += 40;

                $('.link', $elem).stop().animate({ rotate: '+=-40deg' }, 0);

            }, 10);

            $elem.stop().animate({ width: '268px' }, 1000)

                .find('.item_content').fadeIn(400, function () {

                    $(this).find('p').stop(true, true).fadeIn(600);

                });

        }

        function collapse($elem) {

            var angle = 1440;

            var t = setInterval(function () {

                if (angle == 0) {

                    clearInterval(t);

                    return;

                }

                angle -= 40;

                $('.link', $elem).stop().animate({ rotate: '+=40deg' }, 0);

            }, 10);

            $elem.stop().animate({ width: '52px' }, 1000)

                .find('.item_content').stop(true, true).fadeOut().find('p').stop(true, true).fadeOut();

        }

    </script>

</body>
