Bootstrap JS Collapse


JS Collapse (collapse.js)

Get base styles and flexible support for collapsible components like accordions and navigation.

Plugin dependency: Collapse requires the transitions plugin to be included in your version of Bootstrap.

For a tutorial about Collapsibles, read our Bootstrap Collapse Tutorial.


The Collapse Plugin Classes

Class Description Example
.collapse Hides the content Try it
.collapse in Shows the content Try it
.collapsing Added when the transition starts, and removed when it finishes Try it

Via data-* Attributes

Just add data-toggle="collapse" and a data-target to 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.

Example

<button class="btn" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#demo">Collapsible</button>

<div id="demo" class="collapse">
Some text..
</div>

Tip:To add accordion-like group management to a collapsible control, add the data attribute data-parent="#selector".


Via JavaScript

Enable manually with:

$('.collapse').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

toggle boolean true Toggles the collapsible element on invocation
