Collapse

Vue Bootstrap 5 Collapse component

Toggle the visibility of content across your project with a few classes and our JavaScript plugins.

Note: Read the API tab to find all available options and advanced customization

How it works

The collapse JavaScript plugin is used to show and hide content. Buttons or anchors are used as triggers that are mapped to specific elements you toggle. Collapsing an element will animate the height from its current value to 0. Given how CSS handles animations, you cannot use padding on a .collapse element. Instead, use the class as an independent wrapping element.


Basic example

Click the buttons below to show and hide another element via class changes:

We use MDBCollapse component to create collapsible elements.

              </div>
            </MDBCollapse>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBCollapse, MDBBtn } from "mdb-vue-ui-kit";
            import { ref } from 'vue';
  
            export default {
              components: {
                MDBCollapse, 
                MDBBtn
              },
              setup() {
                const collapse1 = ref(false);
  
                return {
                  collapse1
                }
              }
            };
          </script>
        

Multiple targets

Each collapsible element can target multiple collapsbible contents and each collapsbile content can be targeted by multiple collapsible elements.

Accessibility

Be sure to add aria-expanded to the control element. This attribute explicitly conveys the current state of the collapsible element tied to the control to screen readers and similar assistive technologies. If the collapsible element is closed by default, the attribute on the control element should have a value of aria-expanded="false". If you’ve set the collapsible element to be open by default using the show class, set aria-expanded="true" on the control instead. The plugin will automatically toggle this attribute on the control based on whether or not the collapsible element has been opened or closed (via JavaScript, or because the user triggered another control element also tied to the same collapsible element). If the control element’s HTML element is not a button (e.g., an <a> or <div>), the attribute role="button" should be added to the element.

Note that Bootstrap’s current implementation does not cover the various keyboard interactions described in the WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices 1.1 accordion pattern - you will need to include these yourself with custom JavaScript.
