Versatile Expand/Collapse Container
Make the most of precious screen real estate. The stylishly collapsible containers
in the WebEssentials WebExpander and WebAccordion controls make organizing even
the lengthiest and most complex content a snap.
Beneath its graceful exterior, WebAccordion gives you the power of total configuration.
Change the expansion direction and orientation, decorate headers with text and/or
images, host content directly or use IFrame mode to dynamically import it from an
external source, and
Like its sibling, WebExpander offers two distinct expansion modes: Fixed and Flow.
In Fixed mode, users can expand only a single item – expanding another item will
close the current one. In the unique Flow mode, an unlimited number of items can
be expanded simultaneously. Learn more.
