There are many ways to do this. You can do it client-side using jQuery with a JqueryUI menu or some other add-in (http://jqueryui.com/menu/).

If you want to do this server-side and you are using ASP.Net WebForms, you can use a Master Page that contains your menu and the content area would contain your selected page (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa581781.aspx).

Well, looking at the jQueryUI example, you define the menu like this (as in the API documentation):

<ul id="menu">
  <li><a href="#">Item 1</a></li>
  <li><a href="#">Item 2</a></li>
  <li><a href="#">Item 3</a>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">Item 3-1</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Item 3-2</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Item 3-3</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Item 3-4</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Item 3-5</a></li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li><a href="#">Item 4</a></li>
  <li><a href="#">Item 5</a></li>
</ul>

Open in new window

The entries in the inner <ul> group are the submenu (dropdown) which you don't want. The main <ul> group are href's you'd use to replace the "#" with the url to your desired page. The API doc goes into more detail.
