jQuery Mobile - Collapsible Forms


You can apply the theme for forms using the data-theme attribute within the form.


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

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <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 = "page" id = "page1">
         <div data-role = "header">
         <div data-role = "main" class = "ui-content">
            <form action = "/jquery_mobile/submit.php" method = "post">
               <fieldset data-role = "collapsible" data-theme = "b" 
                  data-content-theme = "b">
                  <legend>Collapsible Button</legend>
                  <label for = "name">First Name:</label>
                  <input type = "text" name = "firstname" data-theme = "a">
                  <label for = "name">Last Name:</label>
                  <input type = "text" name = "lastname" data-theme = "a">
                  <input type = "submit" data-inline = "true" value = "Submit" 
                     data-theme = "a">
         <div data-role = "footer">
