jQuery Common Accordion - Horizontal & Vertical

Hey Guys!!! Doing good?

Here I come with a new jQuery Accordion component. I know lots of accordions are available on the net. But I could not find the one, I was looking for.
Well... Whatz the difference then? What was I looking for? Not too much of glorification...
Hence, I ended up making one. It’s pretty easy piece of work and also easy to use. I suggest why you all don’t have a look at the following features I imbibed in my accordion. Explore now!

jQuery Accordion Features

  • Works as vertical accordion and horizontal accordion.
  • It can be auto slide.
  • You can set a default panel.
  • You can set your own mouse events.
  • It can be nested.
  • Its just 4kb without any compression.
  • Its free! :)

How this jQuery Accordion works?

You'll need to keep your html code as follows. Just treat your code as an xml file.

</div>

What is required?

  1. Your html code should be as above. Make a set like I did in above sample html code. You must have respective classes ie set, title & content.
    (You can use your own favorite html tags ie. ul, li, span etc but follow the classes rules)
  2. You'll need to add following code in head tag.
  3. <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/accordion.css" />
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.msAccordion.js"></script>
    
  4. Last but not the least. Enable your accordion with the help of following code. Paste this code to anywhere in the body. "accordionGiftLelo" is your accordion holder.
  5. <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
    						   $("#accordionGiftLelo").msAccordion();
    						   }
    						   )
    </script>
    

jQuery Accordion Basic Code

//init
$("#youdivid").msAccordion();
//set a default panel
$("#youdivid").msAccordion({defaultid:2}); // no. starts from zero 
//change mouse event
$("#youdivid").msAccordion({event:'mouseover'}); //by default its on click
//make it auto slider
$("#youdivid").msAccordion({autodelay:1}); //value in seconds
//make it vertical
$("#youdivid").msAccordion({vertical:true});
//you can combine all options
$("#youdivid").msAccordion({defaultid:2, autodelay:3, vertical:true, event:"dblclick"});
