Developer Notes

  • Component resides inside EH Composites tab in the Toolbox by the name EH Accordion.
  • The accordion component is built using a parent-child model where the parent has the heading and body of the Accordion and child(ren) are the list of collapsible items.
  • Applicable fields of Accordion parent item: 
    • Heading :  RTE field to add heading.
    • Body : RTE field to body.
  • Applicable fields of Accordion child item: 
    • Heading :  RTE field to add heading of the accordion child item, displayed when the item is collapsed
    • Content : RTE field to add body/description of the accordion child item, displayed when the item is expanded.
  • Rendering Parameters(in Accordion Control section) :
    • CanToggle - select to allow toggling of sections. Selected, by default.
  • As accordions have full-width background, they are to be placed directly inside main placeholder. Please do not add it to any section-container.
  • Accordion has a paint-bucket class-"Small Width Accordion", which reduces the spacing around component. This paint-bucket is primarily used on "Admissions" page, where accordion doesn't span full-width of screen
  • In order to add Accent variation on component, one can select "Accent" from paint-bucket on Accordion.
