Jquery is fast and rich Javascript library. It create things in html documents, event handling and animations. It is easy to use API that works across a browser

Introduction


The accordion allows  to provide multiple options or sections. It displays one or more at a time. Each option has built-in support for expanding and collapsing.Users can define a panel to be selected. If it is not specified, then the first option is taken by default. 


Collapse Content Accordion In JQuery

Accordion means options. In Jquery, this accordion declares that other content and HTML element  should be treated and managed as accordion (Option) menus. These options are the objects that specify the appearance and behavior of the menu involved in it. Here we can provide one or more options at a time using Javascript object. They can separate by using a comma if there are more options to be provided.

In this accordion, we have Collapse Functionality. As we have learnt default functionality in accordion, now we will learn about Collapse Functionality in accordion 


Collapse Content Functionality

Here below we look into the usage of three options collapsible in the accordion widget of JqueryUI.
Here The Style  sheet links should be written in head tags
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.1/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css"/>
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script>
<script src="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.1/jquery-ui.js"></script>
To obtain the Collapse Content Functionality, below jquery plugins are used.
code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js
code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.1/jquery-ui.js

The function code of the default accordion is mentioned in head tag
 <script>
        $(function() {
          $( "#accordion" ).accordion({
         collapsible: true
       });
     });
</script>
We should take a div element to form accordion. In that we should mention all the Sections or options.
For each option we should give a div and  a paragraph to form accordion

We should name the div Id as accordion
<div id="accordion">
"h"tags are also used in the div to mention as headings in the form.
<h3> I am the default accordion <h3>
"P" tags are used in the page to set the format in an order
<p>_ _ _ _ _ _ _ __</p>
As mentioned above that we should take a div element to form accordion and we should mention all the sections or options in the div.
Here below it is shown clearly 

 <h3>Section 1</h3>
        <div>
            <p>The purpose behind Brila is to reconceive growing up?that period of 
                striving towards independence?as a creative process. Through various philosophical and 
                artistic outlets, youth participants learn to refine their own reasoning skills in order to
                 determine and express what kind of people they want to be.porttitor velit, faucibus interdum tellus libero ac justo.
                 Vivamus non quam. In suscipit faucibus urna </p>
        </div>
        <h3>Section 2</h3>
        <div>
            <p>The purpose behind Brila is to reconceive growing up?that period of

            <p>The purpose behind Brila is to reconceive growing up?that period of 
                striving towards independence?as a creative process. Through various philosophical and 
                artistic outlets, youth participants learn to refine their own reasoning skills in order to
                 determine and express what kind of people they want to be. </p>
            <ul>
                <li>List item one</li>
                <li>List item two</li>

        <h3>Section 4</h3>
        <div>
            <p>The purpose behind Brila is to reconceive growing up?that period of 
                striving towards independence?as a creative process. Through various philosophical and

        </div>
          <h3>Section 5</h3>
        <div>
            <p>
                The purpose behind Brila is to reconceive growing up?that period of 
                striving towards independence?as a creative process. Through various philosophical and

            </p>
        </div>

        <h3>Section 6</h3>
        <div>
            <p>
                The purpose behind Brila is to reconceive growing up?that period of 
                striving towards independence?as a creative process. Through various philosophical and 
                artistic outlets, youth participants learn to refine their own reasoning skills in order to
                 determine and express what kind of people they want to be.
            </p>
        </div>
In the above code, we have six options or sections in which we used <p> tags, <h> tags and <div> elements.
The output of the code is shown below


In the above example Sections have icons. When we click on the sections the icons shows the collapse action.
The example of Collapse action for the section icons is shown below.

Conclusion
