    31.             $("#ContactContent").hide();  
    32.             $("#QuestionsContent").show();  
    33.         }  
    34.     }  
    35. </script>  
    The script is very easy. You need to change the div contents and its data according to your requirement.

  5. Build and deploy the project.

  6. Create one Web part page and in Web part given above, you will see the tab structure, as shown below.
