Animations in Blazor Accordion Component

20 Aug 20216 minutes to read

Accordion supports custom animations for both expand and collapse actions from the provided animation option of the Animation library. The animation property also allows to set Easing, Duration, and various other effects of an individual’s choice.

Default animation is given as SlideDown for expanding the panel using the Expand animation property and SlideUp for collapsing the panel using the Collapse animation property. The animation can be disabled by setting the animation Effect as None.

The sample demonstrates the types of animation that suits Accordion. All the animation effects can be checked here.
