You can display the form elements in collapsible using a fieldset and legend.


Following example demonstrates the use of collapsible forms using fieldset in jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Collapsible Legend</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>

         <fieldset data-role = "collapsible">
            <label for = "text-basic">Text input:</label>
            <input type = "text" name = "text-basic" id = "text-basic" 
               value = "" placeholder = "Input your text" />
            <fieldset data-role = "controlgroup">
               <legend>Select your favourite sport</legend>
               <input type = "checkbox" name = "checkbox-1" 
                  id = "checkbox-1" checked = "" />
               <label for = "checkbox-1">Baseball</label>
               <input type = "checkbox" name = "checkbox-2" id = "checkbox-2" />
               <label for = "checkbox-2">Cricket</label>
               <input type = "checkbox" name = "checkbox-3" id = "checkbox-3" />
               <label for = "checkbox-3">Football</label>
               <input type = "checkbox" name = "checkbox-4" id = "checkbox-4" />
               <label for = "checkbox-4">Hockey</label>
