Change this in main.master...

<script type="text/javascript">
        //Disable the default MouseOver functionality of ASP.Net Menu control.
        Sys.WebForms.Menu._elementObjectMapper.getMappedObject = function () {
            return false;
        $(function () {
            //Remove the style attributes.
            $(".navbar-nav li, .navbar-nav a, .navbar-nav ul").removeAttr('style');

            //Apply the Bootstrap class to the SubMenu.

            //Apply the Bootstrap properties to the SubMenu.
            //$(".dropdown-toggle:has(ul)").find("a").eq(0).attr("data-toggle", "dropdown").attr("aria-haspopup", "true").attr("aria-expanded", "false").append("<span class='caret'></span>");
            $(".dropdown-toggle").each(function (index) {
                if ($(this).children('ul').length > 0) {
                    $(this).find("a").eq(0).attr("data-toggle", "dropdown").attr("aria-haspopup", "true").attr("aria-expanded", "false").append("<span class='caret'></span>");
            //Apply the Bootstrap "active" class to the selected Menu item.

I think that is the correct process. When you click on the menu item it should show sub menu items.

It doesn't show drop down when first time clicked on it after page is loaded. if i click on other option and then click on drop down menu , then it shows drop down options.
