jQuery Sliding Menu

Usually menu bar occupies some spaces in a web page. By using sliding menu we can have more space to display the main content. In previous posts we have seen about jQuery menu expand and collapse with the sliding effect.

We call jQuery on the click event of the menu expand / collapse icon and controls the sliding effect by using CSS styles. In this example the sliding menu bar will be sticky on page scroll.

Sliding Sticky Menu Bar using jQuery

Sliding in and out effects are achieved by changing the absolute position of the sliding menu element using jQuery. The script is,

    $(".menu-list").css( {"left": 0});
	$(".menu-link-target").css( {"left": 200});
    $(".menu-list").css({"left": "-"+ $(".menu-list").width()});
	$(".menu-link-target").css( {"left": 0});
$('.menu-links').click(function() { 
		var target = $(this).attr('id');
		$('html, body').animate({scrollTop: $('#'+target+'-content').offset().top}, 1000);
