Simple Notification Bar Using jQuery And CSS


To Create Notification Bar It Takes Only Two Steps:-

  1. Make a HTML file and define markup and scripting
  2. Make a CSS file and define styling


Step 1.Make a HTML file and define markup and scripting

We make a HTML file and save it with a name notification_bar.html

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="notification_bar_style.css">
<script>
 function notification()
 {
  $("#notification_div").slideToggle(300);
 }
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrapper">

 <div id="notification_div">
  <span>Yesterday - You Have One Notification Pending From Yesterday</span>
  <br>
  <span>Today - You have No Notifications On Today</span>
 </div>

 <p id="show_notification" onclick='notification();'>Click To Show/Hide Notification Bar</p>

</div>
</body>
</html>

In this step we made a div for notification bar and a paragraph which is used to show and hide the notification whenever user clicks on it.We use jQuery slideToggle() function to show hide notification bar you can use what you want.


Step 2.Make a CSS file and define styling

We make a CSS file and save it with a name notification_bar_style.css

body
{
 width:100%;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 background-color:#A9D0F5;
 font-family:helvetica;
}
#wrapper
{
 text-align:center;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 width:100%;
}
#notification_div
{
 height:100px;
 margin:0px;
 background-color:#2E9AFE;
 display:none;
 padding:40px;
}
#notification_div span
{
 padding:15px;
 background-color:#084B8A;
 color:#A9D0F5;
 border-radius:5px;
}
#show_notification
{
 padding:12px;
 margin:0px;
 background-color:#0174DF;
 vertical-align:bottom;
 color:#E0ECF8;
 font-weight:bold;
 font-size:17px;
 border-top:10px solid #045FB4;
 border-bottom:10px solid #045FB4;
 cursor:pointer;
}

In this step we give some general styling to notification bar and we hide the notification bar because we want to display the notification only when user clicks on notification para.
