Design a responsive navigation bar that adjusts fordifferent screen sizes.

Hey, I am Ajink, and today in this blog, we’re going to design a responsive navigation bar using HTML and CSS. A responsive navigation bar is crucial for providing a seamless user experience across various screen sizes.

HTML code : create an index.html file

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  <title>Responsive Navigation Bar</title>
</head>
<body>
  <nav class="navbar">
    <div class="logo">Your Logo</div>
    <ul class="nav-links">
      <li><a href="#home">Home</a></li>
      <li><a href="#about">About</a></li>
      <li><a href="#services">Services</a></li>
      <li><a href="#contact">Contact</a></li>
    </ul>
  </nav>
</body>
</html>

CSS code : create a style.css

body {
  margin: 0;
  font-family: 'Arial', sans-serif;
}

.navbar {
  background-color: #333;
  padding: 10px;
  display: flex;
  justify-content: space-between;
  align-items: center;
}

.logo {
  color: #fff;
  font-size: 1.5rem;
}

.nav-links {
  list-style: none;
  display: flex;
}

.nav-links li {
  margin-right: 20px;
}

.nav-links a {
  text-decoration: none;
  color: #fff;
  font-weight: bold;
}

/* Responsive styles */
@media screen and (max-width: 768px) {
  .navbar {
    flex-direction: column;
    align-items: flex-start;
  }

  .nav-links {
    margin-top: 10px;
    order: 1;
    display: none;
  }

  .nav-links.show {
    display: flex;
  }

  .nav-links li {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 10px;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #fff;
  }
}

CSS Code Explanation:

  • The CSS provides styling for the navigation bar, including background color, padding, and a flex layout.
  • The @media query is used to apply styles specific to screens with a maximum width of 768px, making the navigation bar responsive.
  • When the screen size is less than or equal to 768px, the navigation links are hidden (display: none;) and are shown when the user clicks on the navigation icon.

JavaScript Code : script.js

document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function () {
  const navbar = document.querySelector('.navbar');
  const navLinks = document.querySelector('.nav-links');

  navbar.addEventListener('click', function () {
    navLinks.classList.toggle('show');
  });
});

JavaScript Code Explanation:

  • The JavaScript code adds a click event listener to the navigation bar.
  • When the user clicks on the navigation bar, it toggles the show class on the navigation links, making them visible or hidden.
