Recommended Usage

Accordions are useful when you want to hide and show a large amount of content. Each item can be “expanded” or “collapsed” to reveal the content associated with that item.

Component Fields:
Each accordion consists of a Title and Content field and the accordion component has a colour scheme and size option.

Each accordion toggle between hiding and showing the content contained. An active/expanded accordions title will have a different background colour.

On mobile devices, the buttons will stack vertically as it’s own full-width button row, so it’s best to use this component sparingly.

Do’s and Don’ts

  • Useful when you want to toggle between hiding and showing a large amount of content.

  • Don’t use accordions for hiding just one sentence.
  • Avoid having pictures or videos inside an accordion.
