Collapse API

API documentation for the React Collapse component. Learn about the available props and the CSS API.


import Collapse from '@mui/material/Collapse';
// or
import { Collapse } from '@mui/material';
You can learn about the difference by reading this guide on minimizing bundle size.

The Collapse transition is used by the Vertical Stepper StepContent component. It uses react-transition-group internally.

Component name

The name MuiCollapse can be used when providing default props or style overrides in the theme.


Props of the Transition component are also available.

Add a custom transition end trigger. Called with the transitioning DOM node and a done callback. Allows for more fine grained transition end logic. Note: Timeouts are still used as a fallback if provided.
The content node to be collapsed.
Override or extend the styles applied to the component. See CSS API below for more details.
| string
The width (horizontal) or height (vertical) of the container when collapsed.
componentelement type
The component used for the root node. Either a string to use a HTML element or a component.

| string
The transition timing function. You may specify a single easing or a object containing enter and exit values.
If true, the component will transition in.
| 'vertical'
The transition orientation.

The system prop that allows defining system overrides as well as additional CSS styles. See the `sx` page for more details.
| number
| { appear?: number, enter?: number, exit?: number }

Set to 'auto' to automatically calculate transition time based on height.

The ref is forwarded to the root element.
