Check out the function of the Collapse element!

The Collapse element allows content with horizontal blocks to be displayed in an expandable and collapsible area. It is often used in designs where the titles of sections are displayed, and other content within becomes visible when expanded. For example, it's used in content with multiple explanatory headings and frequently asked questions. The Collapse element enables users to hide and reveal specific content. It is commonly interactive with a Show More or Show Less button.

The Collapse element is an important user interface element that helps users manage content more orderly, hide excessive information, and access it when needed. In the application development process, it should be carefully designed to enhance user experience and usability.

Adding Collapse

Adding a Collapse element to your application is quite straightforward. To add a Collapse, follow these steps:

  1. In the UI Design view, open the Elements panel on the left side.

  2. From the Container category in the Elements panel, select Collapse.

  3. Drag and drop the Collapse element onto the screen.

  4. You can customize the Collapse element using the Properties panel.

Collapse supports only Web applications. It does not support mobile applications

When you click on one of the titles of the Collapse element, a detail panel opens. You can add an element directly to it or add a Row to create more complex sections.

The Collapse element, like other elements, must be added within a Container element. Although it is generally added within a Row for screen design, it can also be added to other Container-type elements.

You can also drag and drop elements other than Header and Footer elements into the Collapse panel.

When the Collapse element is selected, parameters like Collapse, Destroy Inactive Panel, Accordion, Collapse Panel, Authorization, Visibility, and Actions are displayed in the Properties panel. These parameter areas allow for customization of the Collapse element, special authorization settings, and visibility preferences.
