This code snippet is easy to understand. We have created a top bar which has the id “topbar”. In the jQuery we create a toggle function on the topbar id. When the topbar is clicked it animates and expands to height of 60px. Otherwise, it slides back to height of 30px. Hence, you see the top bar is sliding or toggling up and down when it is clicked. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
