Collapse

Bootstrap collapse

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


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 it’s 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.


Example

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

  1. .collapse hides content
  2. .collapsing is applied during transitions
  3. .collapse.show shows content

You can use a link with the href attribute, or a button with the data-target attribute. In both cases, the data-toggle="collapse" is required.

Multiple targets

A <button> or <a> can show and hide multiple elements by referencing them with a JQuery selector in its href or data-target attribute. Multiple <button> or <a> can show and hide an element if they each reference it with their href or data-target attribute.

Accordion MDB Pro component

Using the card component, you can extend the default collapse behavior to create an accordion.

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 collapsbile 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.

If your control element is targeting a single collapsible element – i.e. the data-target attribute is pointing to an id selector – you should add the aria-controls attribute to the control element, containing the id of the collapsible element. Modern screen readers and similar assistive technologies make use of this attribute to provide users with additional shortcuts to navigate directly to the collapsible element itself.


Usage

The collapse plugin utilizes a few classes to handle the heavy lifting:

  1. .collapse hides the content
  2. .collapse.show shows the content
  3. .collapsing is added when the transition starts, and removed when it finishes

Via data attributes

Just add data-toggle="collapse" and a data-target to the element to automatically assign control of a collapsible element. The data-target attribute accepts a CSS selector to apply the collapse to. Be sure to add the class collapse to the collapsible element. If you’d like it to default open, add the additional class in.

To add accordion-like group management to a collapsible control, add the data attribute data-parent="#selector". Refer to the demo to see this in action.

Via JavaScript

Enable manually with:


        $('.collapse').collapse()
      

Options

Options can be passed via data attributes or JavaScript. For data attributes, append the option name to data-, as in data-parent="".

Name Type Default Description
parent selector false If a selector is provided, then all collapsible elements under the specified parent will be closed when this collapsible item is shown. (similar to traditional accordion behavior - this is dependent on the panel class)
toggle boolean true Toggles the collapsible element on invocation

Methods

Asynchronous methods and transitions

All API methods are asynchronous and start a transition. They return to the caller as soon as the transition is started but before it ends. In addition, a method call on a transitioning component will be ignored.

.collapse(options)

Activates your content as a collapsible element. Accepts an optional options object.


        $('#myCollapsible').collapse({
        toggle: false
        })
      

.collapse('toggle')

Toggles a collapsible element to shown or hidden.

.collapse('show')

Shows a collapsible element.

.collapse('hide')

Hides a collapsible element.

.collapse('dispose')

Destroys an element’s collapse.

Events

Bootstrap’s collapse class exposes a few events for hooking into collapse functionality.

Event Type Description
show.bs.collapse This event fires immediately when the show instance method is called.
shown.bs.collapse This event is fired when a collapse element has been made visible to the user (will wait for CSS transitions to complete).
hide.bs.collapse This event is fired immediately when the hide method has been called.
hidden.bs.collapse This event is fired when a collapse element has been hidden from the user (will wait for CSS transitions to complete).

        $('#myCollapsible').on('hidden.bs.collapse', function () {
        // do something…
        })
