    Hi Anders,

    You can use the PanelBar's select event, check whether the currently clicked item is already expanded and if so, collapse it via the API.

    function expandCollapse(e) {
        if ($(e.item).is(".k-state-active")) {
            var that = this;
            window.setTimeout(function(){that.collapse(e.item);}, 1);
    var panelBar = $("#panelbar").kendoPanelBar({
        expandMode: "single",
        select: expandCollapse

    Just a suggestion...

    Make this a feature! It's a pretty common scenario and it would be great to just make it configurable.

    I currently have an instance where I want to mode to be "single" but also want the user to be able to collapse all items.

    In fact, I would want this to be the default behavior!
