Renders a component with collapsible content.

  • Use the useState() hook to create the isCollapsed state variable. Give it an initial value of collapsed.
  • Use the <button> to change the component's isCollapsed state and the content of the component, passed down via children.
  • Use isCollapsed to determine the appearance of the content and apply the appropriate className.
  • Update the value of the aria-expanded attribute based on isCollapsed to make the component accessible.
const Collapse = ({ collapsed, children }) => {
  const [isCollapsed, setIsCollapsed] = React.useState(collapsed);

  return (
        onClick={() => setIsCollapsed(!isCollapsed)}
        {isCollapsed ? 'Show' : 'Hide'} content
        className={`collapse-content ${isCollapsed ? 'collapsed' : 'expanded'}`}
.collapse-button {
  display: block;
  width: 100%;

.collapse-content.collapsed {
  display: none;

.collapsed-content.expanded {
  display: block;
    <h1>This is a collapse</h1>
    <p>Hello world!</p>
