Accordion

Accordions display a list of high-level options that can expand/collapse to reveal more information.

Import#

Chakra UI exports 5 accordion-related components.

  • Accordion: The wrapper that uses cloneElement to pass props to AccordionItem children.
  • AccordionItem: A single accordion item.
  • AccordionButton: The button that toggles the expand/collapse state of the accordion item.
  • AccordionPanel: The container for the details to be revealed.
  • AccordionIcon: A chevron-down icon that rotates based on the expanded/collapsed state

Usage#

By default, only one item may be expanded and it can only be collapsed again by expanding another.

Accordion now supports keyboard navigation between accordion buttons. Pressing the up and down arrow keys will move focus between accordion buttons.

Expand multiple items at once#

If you set allowMultiple to true then the accordion will permit multiple items to be expanded at once.

If you pass this prop, ensure that the index or defaultIndex prop is an array.

Editable Example

Toggle each accordion item#

If you set allowToggle to true, any expanded item may be collapsed again.

Styling the expanded state#

The AccordionButton component has aria-expanded set to true or false depending on the state of the AccordionItem. Use the style prop _expanded to style this state.

Accessing the internal state#

If you need access to the internal state of each accordion item, you can use a render prop. It provides 2 internal state props: isExpanded and isDisabled.
