Configuration

An object defining configuration properties for the Accordion UI component.

See Also

accessKey

Specifies the shortcut key that sets focus on the UI component.

Type:

String

Default Value: null

The value of this property will be passed to the accesskey attribute of the HTML element that underlies the UI component.

activeStateEnabled

Specifies whether or not the UI component changes its state when interacting with a user.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

This property is used when the UI component is displayed on a platform whose guidelines include the active state change for UI components.

animationDuration

A number specifying the time in milliseconds spent on the animation of the expanding or collapsing of a panel.

Type:

Number

Default Value: 300, 200 (Material)

collapsible

Specifies whether all items can be collapsed or whether at least one item must always be expanded.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

dataSource

Binds the UI component to data.

The Accordion works with collections of string values or objects.

Depending on your data source, bind the Accordion to data as follows. If the data source provides objects, also specify the itemTemplate. You can skip this part if the objects contain fields described in the items section.

  • Data Array
    Assign the array to the dataSource option.

  • Read-Only Data in JSON Format
    Set the dataSource property to the URL of a JSON file or service that returns JSON data.

  • OData
    Implement an ODataStore.

  • Web API, PHP, MongoDB
    Use one of the following extensions to enable the server to process data according to the protocol DevExtreme UI components use:

    Then, use the createStore method to configure access to the server on the client as shown below. This method is part of DevExtreme.AspNet.Data.

    jQuery
    JavaScript
    $(function() {
        let serviceUrl = "https://url/to/my/service";

  • Any other data source
    Implement a CustomStore.

Regardless of the data source on the input, the Accordion always wraps it in the DataSource object. This object allows you to sort, filter, group, and perform other data shaping operations. To get its instance, call the getDataSource() method.

NOTE

Review the following notes about data binding:

  • Do not specify the items property if you specified the dataSource, and vice versa.

  • Data field names cannot be equal to this and should not contain the following characters: ., :, [, and ].

  • The stores and DataSource have methods to process and update data. However, the methods do not allow you to perform particular tasks (for example, replace the entire dataset, reconfigure data access at runtime). For such tasks, create a new array, store, or DataSource and assign it to the dataSource property as shown in the articles about changing properties in jQuery, Angular, React, and Vue.

focusStateEnabled

Specifies whether the UI component can be focused using keyboard navigation.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: true (desktop)

height

Specifies the UI component's height.

Type:

Number

|

String

|

Function

Return Value:

Number

|

String

The UI component's height.

Default Value: undefined

This property accepts a value of one of the following types:

  • Number
    The height in pixels.

  • String
    A CSS-accepted measurement of height. For example, "55px", "80%", "inherit".

  • Function
    A function returning either of the above. For example:

    JavaScript
    height: function() {
        return window.innerHeight / 1.5;
    }

hint

Specifies text for a hint that appears when a user pauses on the UI component.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined

hoverStateEnabled

Specifies whether the UI component changes its state when a user pauses on it.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: true

itemComponent

An alias for the itemTemplate property specified in React. Accepts a custom component. Refer to Using a Custom Component for more information.

itemHoldTimeout

The time period in milliseconds before the onItemHold event is raised.

Type:

Number

Default Value: 750

itemRender

An alias for the itemTemplate property specified in React. Accepts a rendering function. Refer to Using a Rendering Function for more information.

items[]

An array of items displayed by the UI component.

Raised Events: optionChanged

The items array can contain:

  • Strings
  • Objects with fields described in this section
  • Objects with any other fields. In this case, specify the itemTemplate.

If you need to update the UI component items, reassign the entire items array as shown in the following example:

JavaScript
accordionInstance.option('items', newItems);

As an alternative to items, you can use the dataSource property. It accepts the DataSource object, whose underlying stores provide an API that allows you to update individual items without reassigning the entire item collection.

NOTE
Do not use the items property if you use dataSource, and vice versa.

itemTemplate

Specifies a custom template for items.

Type:

template

Template Data:

Object

The current item's data.

Default Name: 'item'

itemTitleComponent

An alias for the itemTitleTemplate property specified in React. Accepts a custom component. Refer to Using a Custom Component for more information.

itemTitleRender

An alias for the itemTitleTemplate property specified in React. Accepts a rendering function. Refer to Using a Rendering Function for more information.

itemTitleTemplate

Specifies a custom template for item titles.

Type:

template

Template Data:

Object

The current item's data.

Default Name: 'title'

keyExpr

Specifies the key property that provides key values to access data items. Each key value must be unique.

Type:

String

|

Function

Default Value: null

multiple

Specifies whether the UI component can expand several items or only a single item at once.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

noDataText

Specifies the text or HTML markup displayed by the UI component if the item collection is empty.

Type:

String

Default Value: 'No data to display'

The Accordion component evaluates the noDataText property's value. This evaluation, however, makes the Accordion potentially vulnerable to XSS attacks. To guard against these attacks, encode the HTML markup before you assign it to the noDataText property. Refer to the following help topic for more information: Potentially Vulnerable API - noDataText.
