    Hi ArunBerlin,

    If you want to implement side navigation,you could only use html+css+js,for example:

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    body {
      font-family: "Lato", sans-serif;
    .sidenav {
      height: 100%;
      width: 0;
      z-index: 1;
      top: 0;
      left: 0;
      background-color: #111;
      overflow-x: hidden;
      transition: 0.5s;
      padding-top: 60px;
    .sidenav a {
      padding: 8px 8px 8px 32px;
      text-decoration: none;
      font-size: 25px;
      color: #818181;
      display: block;
      transition: 0.3s;
    .sidenav a:hover {
      color: #f1f1f1;
    .sidenav .closebtn {
      top: 0;
      right: 25px;
      font-size: 36px;
      margin-left: 50px;
    @media screen and (max-height: 450px) {
      .sidenav {padding-top: 15px;}
      .sidenav a {font-size: 18px;}
    <div id="mySidenav" class="sidenav">
      <a href="javascript:void(0)" class="closebtn" onclick="closeNav()">&times;</a>
      <a href="#">About</a>
      <a href="#">Services</a>
      <a href="#">Clients</a>
      <a href="#">Contact</a>
    <h2>Animated Sidenav Example</h2>
    <p>Click on the element below to open the side navigation menu.</p>
    <span style="font-size:30px;cursor:pointer" onclick="openNav()">&#9776; open</span>
    function openNav() {
      document.getElementById("mySidenav").style.width = "250px";
    function closeNav() {
      document.getElementById("mySidenav").style.width = "0";

    or create a collapsible HTML sidebar navigationusing Bootstrap 4 with some CSS and jQuery:


    Many demos in here:


    Call the HTML page on Multiple Razor view Pages

    I recommend to place your sidebar in Layout.cshtml.

    (Also,You could choose to code sidebar as a Partial View, and then call it in Layout.cshtml.)

    In this case, all Razor pages that reference the Layout view can display sidebar.

    If you only want a few special razor views to show sidebar,you could define ViewBag in their own actions:

       ViewBag.PreferredSidebar = "default";//ViewBag.PreferredSidebar = "default2"

    and later you can work with this value in Layout.cshtml:

    @if(ViewBag.PreferredSidebar  == "default"||ViewBag.PreferredSidebar == "default2")

    Best Regards.
