# Expansion panels

The v-expansion-panel component is useful for reducing vertical space with large amounts of information. The default functionality of the component is to only display one expansion-panel body at a time; however, with the multiple property, the expansion-panel can remain open until explicitly closed.

# Usage

Expansion panels in their simplest form display a list of expandable items. You can either declare the markup explicitly, or use the title and text props.

# API

# Examples

# Props

# Variant

There are four different variants of the expansion-panel. Accordion expansion-panels have no margins around the currently active panel. Inset expansion-panels become smaller when activated, while poput expansion-panels become larger.

# Disabled

Both the expansion-panel and its content can be disabled using the disabled prop.

# Model

Expansion panels can be controlled externally by using the v-model. You will need to set a value on each panel, so that you can refer to them outside the component. If the multiple prop is set, then the v-model value will be an array.

# Readonly

readonly prop does the same thing as disabled, but it doesn’t touch styles.

# Misc

# Advanced

The expansion panel component provides a rich playground to build truly advanced implementations. Here we take advantage of slots in the v-expansion-panel-header component to react to the state of being open or closed by fading content in and out.

# Custom icon

Expand action icon can be customized with expand-icon prop or the actions slot.
