Where to use

Whenever some content on a given page should be concealed and/or expandible. This often holds true for instance for detailed but hidden information of some entity to save space.


The header of this component should follow our design and UX conventions so it looks the same across the application. It accepts a node to accompany the two scenarios:

  1. Given the CollapsiblePanel is condensed

Whenever the component is configured to be condensed all content pased via the header will be wrapped in a <Text.Detail />. For this use case please ensure that no combinations of components are passed via the header.

import CollapsiblePanel from '@commercetools-uikit/collapsible-panel';

<CollapsiblePanel condensed={true} header={'My title'}>
  <YourComponentAsContentOfThePanel />
  1. Given the CollapsiblePanel is not condensed

For this use case you will need to explicitly pass the header wrapped by the <CollapsiblePanel.Header /> component to automatically ensure it follows our designs (enforced by the <CollapsiblePanel.Header />).

import CollapsiblePanel from '@commercetools-uikit/collapsible-panel';

      <FormattedMessage {...messages.title} />
  <YourComponentAsContentOfThePanel />
  1. Passing a combination of components (e.g. label and input)

Rendering any input(s) inside the header is allowed, but there are certain contraints that need to be taken into account:

  • You can only render a maximum amount of 3 components inside the header.
  • Given a combination of label and input
    • Then the input's label should be bold and the input only a <TextInput />
  • All has to be vertically aligned in the header container.


The component supports themes (dark and light) to enable nesting of collapsible panels inside one another.

  • Given the background of the parent is dark
    • Then the child needs to be light for better accessibility and visibility


There are a some restrictions given using condensed={true}

  1. Nothing complex is passed as the header
  • Nor button or inputs or anything that is not within title itself
  1. The title should be only (if possible) be a string or a combination or text components
  • Everything is automatically wrapped within a <Text.Detail />


The secondaryHeader allow rendering some secondary information in addition to the title.

It accepts a node but with few restrictions:

  1. Bold text is allowed while the text component is <Text.Detail />
  2. Text size should not exceed the font size of <Text.Detail />


The headerControls allows rendering a component which should only contain buttons or links. Apart from that there is one more limitation:

  1. You can only render a maximum amount of 3 button inside the headerControls

Static methods


Returns the generated id used for the wrapper of the panel content section. It is used for setting the aria-controls attribute on the header and can also be useful for finding the child element when testing.

CollapsiblePanel.getPanelContentId('example'); // -> panel-content-example
