We are shipping an Expansion Panel as one more collapsible component. Display any type of content by providing a clickable title which will expand to reveal the content area. The Expansion Panel is a perfect addition to your application pages and it’s useful for presenting single collapsible items. Below you can see what five separate expansion panels look like.
