CSS Library All examples
Welcome to Dynamic Drive's new CSS library! Here you'll find original, practical CSS codes and examples such as CSS menus to give your site a visual boast.
Modern Bricks Menu
This is a modern looking, imageless horizontal menu. The selected menu item merges with the band below it to help it stand out even more. As mentioned, the menu uses no images, making customization a breeze.
Glowing Tabs Menu
Glowing Tabs Menu uses a background image that accentuates the outline of each tab. And to jazz it up, the selected tab "glows", by using the "Sliding Doors" technique to shift the original background image upwards to reveal the glowing version of the tab image. An exquisite yet professional looking horizontal menu!
Sliding Doors Vertical Menu
This nicely padded vertical menu swaps between two background images depending on whether the mouse is over or out of a menu item. To ensure a perfectly smooth transition between image change (especially in IE), it uses the Sliding Doors technique and a single background image that merges the two backgrounds into it.
Solid Block Menu
This is a lean, professional looking CSS menu that's draped in a solid two color background image. The divider between the menu items is simply a white CSS border. The style is extremely easy to customize thanks to the simple background image used.
CSS Gradient Shadow
CSS Thick Tabs
These CSS menu tabs come with thick top/bottom padding to achieve that attractive cushioned look. Setup is very easy- each menu link simply carries a gradient background image that is changed to a darker version of the original when the mouse rolls over each menu item.
