  • Action: Dropdown configuration setting that allows you to choose from three options:

    1. Expand: Expands the element.

    2. Collapse: Collapses the element.

    3. Toggle: Toggles the state of the element i.e. collapses it if it is expanded and vice-versa.

  • Element: Value Parameter that accepts either a text value in the form of a CSS Selector or an element value. The Element block comes pre-attached for your convenience but can be removed and customized.

Usage Examples

The image below shows an example of the Mode 1 version where the selected Collapsible Area element is expanded.

In the next example we see a Mode 2 version where the Element value parameter is attached to a Text block containing a CSS Selector that selects the same element. This time the element's state is toggled.

NOTE: Using a CSS selector, you can operate on multiple elements that match the criteria specified by the selector. See the references below for more information:
