Hi guys,

Building a mobile web app and am using the collapsible content feature. We would like to use the "info" icon as the custom icon, for both the expanded and collapsed version of the content block.

The "info" icon displays for the collapsed version, but when clicked on, the icon changes to a plus icon, despite having a value of "info" for the data-expanded-icon attribute. Not sure if I'm missing something ..

I haven't tested to see if this is happening for any other icon, but thought I should bring it up.

Here's a jsbin link -



Hi @mdevera,

no, you missed nothing. Good catch btw!
Having the same non standard icon for collapsed and expanded state is not possible this time.
I'll try to land a fix for this issue that will pass the tests.




I've created a PR to fix this issue, but I don't know, if it will get in.

Another solution to achieve same icons for expanded and collapsed state is to use a CSS-rule like this:
div.ui-collapsible[data-expanded-icon="info"] span.ui-icon { background-position: -540px 50%; }
for the info icon.
Here is a fiddle to demonstrate that

I don't use jsbin because a second css rule like that above (eg using grid-icon) does not work there ...



Hey @MauriceG

Thank you for the reply and clarification. I'll give the CSS-rule a shot for now. :)

Much appreciated! :)
