To keep single pane open always in EJ2 TypeScript Accordion control

2 May 20233 minutes to read

By default, all Accordion panels are collapsible. You can customize the Accordion to keep one panel as expanded state always. This is applicable for Single expand mode.

import {Accordion, ExpandEventArgs, AccordionClickArgs} from '@syncfusion/ej2-navigations';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);
let clickEle: HTMLElement;
let accordion: Accordion = new Accordion({
    expandMode: 'Single',
    clicked: clicked,
    expanding: beforeExpand,
    items: [
      { header: 'ASP.NET', expanded:'true', content: 'Microsoft ASP.NET is a set of technologies in the Microsoft .NET Framework for building Web applications and XML Web services.' },
      { header: 'ASP.NET MVC', content: 'The Model-View-Controller (MVC) architectural pattern separates an application into three main components: the model, the view, and the controller.' },
      { header: 'JavaScript', content: 'JavaScript (JS) is an interpreted computer programming language. It was originally implemented as part of web browsers so that client-side scripts could interact with the user, control the browser, communicate asynchronously, and alter the document content that was displayed.' },
    ]
});
accordion.appendTo('#element');

function clicked (e: AccordionClickArgs): void {
  clickEle = (e.originalEvent.target as Element).closest('.e-acrdn-header');
}
function beforeExpand (e: ExpandEventArgs):void {
  let expandCount: number = this.element.querySelectorAll('.e-selected').length;
  let ele: HTMLElement= this.element.querySelectorAll('.e-selected')[0];
  if (ele) {
    ele = ele.firstChild as Element;
  }
  if (expandCount === 1 && ele === clickEle) {
    e.cancel = true;
  }
}
