To keep single pane open always in EJ2 JavaScript 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.


//Initialize Accordion component

var clickEle;
var accordion = new ej.navigations.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.' },

//Render initialized Accordion component

function clicked (e) {
  clickEle ='.e-acrdn-header');

function beforeExpand (e) {
  var expandCount = this.element.querySelectorAll('.e-selected').length;
  var ele = this.element.querySelectorAll('.e-selected')[0];
  if (ele) {
    ele = ele.firstChild
  if (expandCount === 1 && ele === clickEle) {
    e.cancel = true;
