Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template produces a collapsible list. It is possible to set CSS styles for the "frame" (the <div>...</div> tags surrounding the list), for the list title, and for the list items. The template supports an unlimited number of list items.

This template is typically used in infoboxes and navboxes; it should not normally be used in regular article content, per MOS:DONTHIDE.

Regarding using this template in infoboxes, MOS:DONTHIDE acknowledges that "a few infoboxes also use pre-collapsed sections for infrequently accessed details. If [such] information ... seems extraneous or trivial enough to inspire pre-collapsing it, consider raising a discussion on the article (or template) talk page about whether it should be included at all."

Syntax

{{Collapsible list
 | expand = 
 | framestyle = 
 | titlestyle = 
 | title = 
 | liststyle = 
 | hlist = 
 | bullets = 
 | 1 =     <!--(First item in list; the "1 =" is usually not required)-->
 | 2 =     <!--(Second item in list; ditto)-->
 | 3 =     <!--(Third item in list; etc.)-->
 | <!-- etc -->
}}

Parameters

expand Any text in this parameter (including "no") sets the list's default state to expanded rather than collapsed. Omit the parameter or leave it blank to set the default state to collapsed.
framestyle Custom CSS styling applied the template overall (title and list).
titlestyle Custom CSS styling applied to the title.
title The list's title (always on view beside the list's [show/hide] link).
liststyle Custom CSS styling applied to the list (specifically, to the <ul>...</ul> tags delimiting the list).
hlist Include as |hlist=on, |hlist=true, etc to produce a horizontal rather than vertical list.
bullets Include as |bullets=on, |bullets=true, etc to place a bullet point before each list item.
Unnamed parameters
(first, second, third...)
The list items (in the order in which they will appear). If none are supplied, the template outputs nothing.

Examples

{{Collapsible list
 | title = [[European Free Trade Association]] members
 | [[Iceland]]
 | [[Liechtenstein]]
 | [[Norway]]
 | [[Switzerland]]
}}

Example of a list without borders because it is within an infobox

In these examples, the fields leader_name2 and leader_name3 have been changed to use collapsible list.
