Example of Simple Accordion Jquery menu without using Jquery UI

In some scenario we required to design expand & collapsible control using pure Jquery. Let’s assume the application for which we are going to design Accordion is not using Jquery UI. Jquery UI is having its own in-build Accordion function. Using this it is a line of code to implement accordion. In this example let me show you how to create an accordion Jquery menu without using jQuery UI library.

In the below example I have 4 div’s. Div id’s with header-A & header-B are the header tabs for my accordion. On click of this headers I need to show the body-A & body-B div’s respectively. Referring a Jquery CDN library here inside the document.ready() method initially I am hiding all the body div’s. Then on click of each header div I am checking whether the respective body div is visible or not. If the div is hidden then I am applying Jquery show method to display the relative body div. If the div is visible then I am hiding the respective body div. To make the accordion collapse & expand features smooth I used slow as a parameter to show() & hide() methods.
