Javascript – jQuery Accordion open collapsed

accordionjavascriptjqueryjquery-ui

using jquery v1.3.2 and jQuery UI 1.7.1

I have 1 tab control with 3 tabs in it. Each tab contains 1 accordion control.

$(document).ready(function() {
$('#acc1').accordion({ collapsible: true, autoHeight: false });     

$('#acc1').accordion({ collapsible: true, autoHeight: false });     

$('#acc1').accordion({ collapsible: true, autoHeight: false });

$('#tabControl').tabs();

});

tabControl is not visible at page load. There is button that opens it.

$("#btnShow").bind("click", function() {
$('#tabControl').slideToggle("slow");
});

I can't find the way to have all accordion controls collapsed. Every time I show tabControl, accordions in it have first item always expanded.

I have tried this:

$('#acc1First').css('display', 'none');
$('#acc2First').css('display', 'none');
$('#acc3First').css('display', 'none');

$('#acc1First').slideUp();
$('#acc2First').slideUp();
$('#acc3First').slideUp();

but it bugges sometimes, first item have to be clicked 2 times to work properly etc.

Is there any way to initialize accordion control with all items collapsed ?

Thanks

Best Solution

Try this

$('#acc1').accordion({ 
    collapsible: true, 
    autoHeight: false, 
    active: false 
});
