What is Bootstrap Collapse?

Collapse is a vertical element used to show and hide content via class changes.


Installation

Manual installation (zip package)

To take advantage of our Bootstrap images component and use them in your project, you first need to install the MDB 5 Free package


MDB CLI

Watch our Quick Start Tutorial to discover and use the full potential of MDB 5 and MDB CLI


NPM

Prerequisites

Before starting the project make sure to install Node LTS (12.x.x recommended).

Installation

To install MDB UI KIT in your project easily type the following command in the terminal:

npm i mdb-ui-kit 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Importing JS modules

You can import the entire library or just individual modules:

import * as mdb from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // lib
import { Input } from 'mdb-ui-kit'; // module 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Importing CSS file

To import MDB stylesheet please use the following syntax:

@import '~mdb-ui-kit/css/mdb.min.css'; 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Importing SCSS modules

You can also import individual SCSS modules. To do it properly, we recommend to copy them from the node_modules/mdb-ui-kit/src/scss location directly to your project and import in the same way as CSS files.

Webpack integration

You can significantly speed up the process of creating a new project based on Webpack using our Starter.


CDN

Installation via CDN is one of the easiest methods of integrating MDB UI KIT with your project. Just copy the latest compiled JS script tag and CSS link tag from cdnjs to the application.

Don't forget to add also Font Awesome and Roboto font if you need. Here's an example code:

CSS
<!-- Font Awesome -->
<link
  href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/5.15.1/css/all.min.css"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
<!-- Google Fonts -->
<link
  href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:300,400,500,700&display=swap"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
<!-- MDB -->
<link
  href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mdb-ui-kit/3.3.0/mdb.min.css"
  rel="stylesheet"
/>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
JS
<!-- MDB -->
<script
  type="text/javascript"
  src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mdb-ui-kit/3.3.0/mdb.min.js"
></script>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Customization

Basic example

You can show and hide another element via class changes:

  • .collapse hides content
  • .collapsing is applied during transitions
  • .collapse.show shows content

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

HTML
<!-- Buttons trigger collapse -->
<a
  class="btn btn-primary"
  data-mdb-toggle="collapse"
  href="#collapseExample"
  role="button"
  aria-expanded="false"
  aria-controls="collapseExample"
>
  Link with href
</a>
<button
  class="btn btn-primary"
  type="button"
  data-mdb-toggle="collapse"
  data-mdb-target="#collapseExample"
  aria-expanded="false"
  aria-controls="collapseExample"
>
  Button with data-mdb-target
</button>

<!-- Collapsed content -->
<div class="collapse mt-3" id="collapseExample">
  Anim pariatur cliche reprehenderit, enim eiusmod high life accusamus terry richardson ad
  squid. Nihil anim keffiyeh helvetica, craft beer labore wes anderson cred nesciunt
  sapiente ea proident.
</div>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Multiple targets

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

HTML
<!-- Buttons trigger collapse -->
<a
  class="btn btn-primary"
  data-mdb-toggle="collapse"
  href="#multiCollapseExample1"
  role="button"
  aria-expanded="false"
  aria-controls="multiCollapseExample1"
>
  Toggle first element
</a>
<button
  class="btn btn-primary"
  type="button"
  data-mdb-toggle="collapse"
  data-mdb-target="#multiCollapseExample2"
  aria-expanded="false"
  aria-controls="multiCollapseExample2"
>
  Toggle second element
</button>
<button
  class="btn btn-primary"
  type="button"
  data-mdb-toggle="collapse"
  data-mdb-target=".multi-collapse"
  aria-expanded="false"
  aria-controls="multiCollapseExample1 multiCollapseExample2"
>
  Toggle both elements
</button>

<!-- Collapsed content -->
<div class="row">
  <div class="col">
    <div class="collapse multi-collapse mt-3" id="multiCollapseExample1">
      Anim pariatur cliche reprehenderit, enim eiusmod high life accusamus terry
      richardson ad squid. Nihil anim keffiyeh helvetica, craft beer labore wes anderson
      cred nesciunt sapiente ea proident.
    </div>
  </div>
  <div class="col">
    <div class="collapse multi-collapse mt-3" id="multiCollapseExample2">
      Anim pariatur cliche reprehenderit, enim eiusmod high life accusamus terry
      richardson ad squid. Nihil anim keffiyeh helvetica, craft beer labore wes anderson
      cred nesciunt sapiente ea proident.
    </div>
  </div>
</div>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
