Load accordion items dynamically in JavaScript Accordion control

Accordion items can be added dynamically by passing the item and index value with the addItem method.

In the following demo, new items are added dynamically when you expand an Accordion header using expanded event.

  • Data is fetched from the data source and it is formatted as a JSON object with header and content fields.

  • Here last index is calculated to append the new Accordion item at the end and the number of items are limited to 10, since the data bound have only 10 items.
