ExpansionPanel

Expansion panels contain creation flows and allow lightweight editing of an element.

Usage

self.add_widget(
    MDExpansionPanel(
        icon="logo.png",  # panel icon
        content=Content(),  # panel content
        panel_cls=MDExpansionPanelOneLine(text="Secondary text"),  # panel class
    )
)

To use MDExpansionPanel you must pass one of the following classes to the panel_cls parameter:

These classes are inherited from the following classes:

  • OneLineAvatarIconListItem

  • TwoLineAvatarIconListItem

  • ThreeLineAvatarIconListItem

self.root.ids.box.add_widget(
    MDExpansionPanel(
        icon="logo.png",
        content=Content(),
        panel_cls=MDExpansionPanelThreeLine(
            text="Text",
            secondary_text="Secondary text",
            tertiary_text="Tertiary text",
        )
    )
)
