jQuery/CSS/HTML || Simple Collapsible Accordion Panel

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Accordion panels are a vertical stack of items. Each item can be “expanded” or “collapsed” to reveal the content associated with that item. There can be zero expanded items, or more than one item expanded at a time, depending on the configuration.

Using jQuery, the following is sample code which demonstrates how to display a simple collapsible accordion panel to the page.

This panel comes with a few basic features. Using data attributes, you can adjust the slide up and slide down speed, as well as the initial collapsed status. You can also specify either the entire row as selectable, or just the button.
