  • You can use the Accordion UI Pattern to allow users expand and hide content when clicked.

    How to use the Accordion UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Accordion.

      The Accordion widget is displayed.

      If the UI widget does not display, it may be because you used a ready-made app, which deletes unused widgets from the module. To make additional widgets available in your app:

      a. Go to Module > Manage dependencies.

      b. Search for and select the relevant Producer, for example OutSystemsUI. Ensure Show All is selected.

      c. On the Public elements for the selected Producer displayed on the right, ensure Show All is selected.

      d. Search for and select the element you want to add, and click Apply.

      e. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for the widget again.

    2. From the Toolbox, drag the Accordion widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.

      Note: By default, the Accordion widget contains 3 Accordion Item widgets. You can add or delete Accordion Items as required.

    3. Add the relevant content to the Accordion Item placeholders, for example, FAQs.

    4. After following these steps and publishing the module, you can test the pattern in your app.
