Table of contents

  • Includes bootstrap view
  • Includes bootstrap library
  • Define its class name

This article will guide you to adding accordion with arrow in Bootstrap with example.

Step 1: Includes bootstrap view

To ensure proper rendering and touch zooming for all devices, add the responsive viewport meta tag to your <head>.

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">

Step 2: Includes bootstrap library

First of all, load the Bootstrap framework CSS into the head tag of your webpage.

<!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css"
    integrity="sha384-zCbKRCUGaJDkqS1kPbPd7TveP5iyJE0EjAuZQTgFLD2ylzuqKfdKlfG/eSrtxUkn" crossorigin="anonymous">

    <link href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.1/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" id="bootstrap-css">
    <script src="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.1/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
    <script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

Step 3: Define its class name

After that, create the accordion with arrow with a class name class="accordion" id="accordionExample".

    <div class="container">
        
            <h2>Bootstrap 4 Collapse Arrow Icons</h2>
       
        <div class="accordion" id="accordionExample">

Example.

Let’s look at the following example to understand how it basically works:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">

    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">

    <script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <!------ Include the above in your HEAD tag ---------->
