  • Attribute data-toggle="collapse" is used to control the collapsible content such as show and hide content.
  • Attribute data-target="#id" is used to connect the controller like button with the collapsible content.
  • Class .collapse indicates a collapsible element which means class .collapse tells that this is the content that will be show and hide by clicking a button.

  3. <script type="text/javascript">
  4. $(document).ready(function(){
  5. $(".btn").click(function(){
  6. $("#toggle-example").collapse('toggle');
  7. });
  8. });
