But when you will hover over a specific menu then the submenu will appear. Basically, at first, the submenu is hidden but when you hover over menu item a specific menu's submenu will appear. This is only a frontend program or design without any backend integration.

Dropdown Menu Bar in HTML CSS [Source Codes]

As always, before sharing the codes of this program (Drop-down Menu Ba), let's a few talk about the main tags and codes of this program. This program is fully <ul> and <li> based program, that’s why we can create a menu easily.

 As you can see in the video, First, I have created a nav tag and placed all the elements inside it. Then I created <ul>, <li> and <a> HTML tag. The <ul> tag defines an unordered (bulleted) list. Use the <ul> tag together with the <li> tag to create unordered lists.

In this program, I wrote '#' inside href i.e <a href="#" ></a> that mean it doesn't indicates any website or it doesn't redirect to any website. If you will put any website link inside href attribute when the user clicks on that link, that user automatically redirects on that particular website which you'll provide inside the href attribute.

There are many things I left. Because I can't say all things in writing. I'm just talking about the main codes of this program. Don't worry you'll understand all codes and programs after getting the source code of this Sidebar.
