jQuery Mobile - Collapsible Icons


The collapsible heading's default icons can be overriden using data-collapsed-icon and data-expanded-icon attributes.


Following example demonstrates the use of collapsible icons in jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Collapsible Icons</title>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>

      <div data-role = "collapsible" data-collapsed-icon = "carat-d" data-expanded-icon = "carat-u">
         <ul data-role = "listview" data-inset = "false">
            <li>Read-only item 1</li>
            <li>Read-only item 2</li>
            <li>Read-only item 3</li>
