Advanced Drop-down Menu Animation like Facebook using HTML CSS & JavaScript

Hello readers, Today in this blog you’ll learn how to create an Advanced Dropdown Menu like Facebook using HTML CSS & JavaScript. Earlier I have shared a blog on how to create a Responsive Drop-down Menu Bar using HTML & CSS. And now I’m going to create an Advanced Drop-down Menu Animation.

A drop-down menu is a graphical control element intended to help visitors find particular pages or features on your website. Clicking or hovering on a top-level menu label prompts a list of options to a dropdown. Dropdown menus are also usually used for website navigation.

In this program (Advanced Drop-down Menu Animation), at first, on the webpage, there is a drop button and when you click on that button then the menu container is shown. There are five menu lists on the menu container but two menus have a drop-list or drop-menu. When you click on that menu, this menu container smoothly slides to the right side and shows the drop-list of the clicked menu. And there is also shown a back arrow button that is used to redirect you to the menu container from the drop-list.


If you’re feeling difficult to understand what I am saying. You can watch a full video tutorial on this program (Advanced Drop-down Menu Animation).
