(Enter the content of this article below)


This article is for a specific plugin. Please be sure to read the Introduction and Overview to jQuery Plugins which provides an introduction to the plugins.


This plugin is used in conjunction with the dnnPanels plugin. If you have a group of three or more panels – an "expand all" element should be added that when clicks expands all of the currently visible panels. It then switches it’s action state to "collapse all" so that the user may trigger the reverse action.

Available Options and their Defaults

expandText: 'Expand All', // text for expand action
collapseText: 'Collapse All', // text for collapsed action
targetArea: '#dnnHostSettings', // the wrapper around the target panels
targetSelector: 'h2.dnnFormSectionHead a', // the element which triggers the expand/collapse action
targetExpandedSelector: '.dnnSectionExpanded' // the class which identifies the target panel in an expanded state

Usage Example

The HTML element would be added in an appropriate place - typically outside of the associated panels.


<div class="dnnFormExpandContent"><a href="#"><%=Localization.GetString("ExpandAll", Localization.SharedResourceFile)%></a></div>


$('#dnnAdvancedSettings .dnnFormExpandContent a').dnnExpandAll({
expandText: '<%=Localization.GetString("ExpandAll", Localization.SharedResourceFile)%>',
collapseText: '<%=Localization.GetString("CollapseAll", Localization.SharedResourceFile)%>',
targetArea: '#dnnAdvancedSettings'
