Collapsible

Collapsible is an element that allows a user to toggle (view/hide) supplemental information or actions.

When to use:

  • To organize related information.
  • To shorten pages and reduce scrolling when content is not crucial to read in full.
  • When space is at a premium and long content cannot be displayed all at once.

Basic Usage

The styling prop at the top level <Collapsible /> component determines if the collapsible has basic styling, card, or card with heading.

Basic Style <Collapsible styling="basic" />

Card Style <Collapsible styling="card" />

This is the default style if no styling prop is supplied.

Large Card Style <Collapsible styling="card-lg" />

Card with custom icons <Collapsible styling="card-lg" />

Default Open

With Callbacks


Advanced Usage

For needs that deviate from the three styles above, use <Collapsible.Advanced />

Bare minimum

Controlled usage

Imperative methods

If you need to open or close the Collapsible intermittently due to an event, such as loading the page or clicking a link, you can open or close an uncontrolled Collapsible by getting a ref to the component and calling collapsibleRef.open() or collapsibleRef.close(). The internal state of the component will be updated accordingly.
