    Do you know how? We’ll show you the example of some of the components introduced in Ionic Framework v6
    • ionic Accordion

      Tag: <ion-accordion> 

      You can easily organize with large amounts of content in an easy-to-understand way. Accordion allows you to deal with:

      • Smooth animations
      • Keyboard support
      • Reduced motion accessibility

      Moreover, it is well-known for its flexibility and can be used on both mobile and desktop applications.
      A basic example of <ion-accordion>
      The primary use of ionic accordion is to provide collapsible sections in the content to reduce vertical space while providing a way of organizing and grouping information. All ion-accordion components should be grouped inside ion-accordion-group components.

      Copy
      ><ion-accordion-group>
      <ion-accordion value="first">
      <ion-item slot="header" color="light">
      <ion-label>Accordion - 1</ion-label>
      </ion-item>
      <div class="ion-padding" slot="content">
      Content of First Accordion Goes Here…
      </div>
      </ion-accordion>
      <ion-accordion value="second">
      <ion-item slot="header" color="light">
      <ion-label>Accordion - 2</ion-label>
      </ion-item>
      <div class="ion-padding" slot="content">
      Content of Second Accordion Goes Here… 
      </div>
      </ion-accordion>
      <ion-accordion value="third">
      <ion-item slot="header" color="light">
      <ion-label>Accordion - 3</ion-label>
      </ion-item>
      <div class="ion-padding" slot="content">
      Content of Third Accordion Goes Here …
      </div>
      </ion-accordion>
      </ion-accordion-group>

      Likewise, the Ionic app developers can even Toggle Accordions​ as per the needs.
      Which accordion is open is controlled by setting the value property on the ion-accordion group. Setting this property allows developers to programmatically expand or collapse certain accordions.

      The example shown below demonstrates that the value of the third accordion needs to be toggled.

      Copy
      <ion-content>
      <ion-accordion-group>
      <ion-accordion value="first">
      <ion-item slot="header" color="light">
      <ion-label> Accordion - 1</ion-label>
      </ion-item>
      <div class="ion-padding" slot="content">
      Content of Accordion 1
      </div>
      </ion-accordion>
      <ion-accordion value="second">
      <ion-item slot="header" color="light">
      <ion-label>Accordion - 2</ion-label>
      </ion-item>
      <div class="ion-padding" slot="content">
      Content of Accordion 2
      </div>
      </ion-accordion>
      <ion-accordion value="third">
      <ion-item slot="header" color="light">
      <ion-label>Accordion - 3</ion-label>
      </ion-item>
      <div class="ion-padding" slot="content">
      Content of Accordion 3
      </div>
      </ion-accordion>
      </ion-accordion-group>
      
      <ion-button onclick="toggleAccordion()">Toggle Second Accordion</ion-button>
      </ion-content>
      
      <script>
      const accordionGroup = document.querySelector('ion-accordion-group');
      var toggleAccordion = () => {
      if (accordionGroup.value === 'third') {
      accordionGroup.value = undefined;
      } else {
      accordionGroup.value = 'third';
      }
      }
      </script>
    • Breadcrumbs

      Tag: <ion-breadcrumbs>

      Breadcrumbs provide essential context to users regarding where they are in your application and how they got there. 

      Fully customisable and collapsable means that this component can tackle even the most complex of application setups.

        <ion-breadcrumb href="#newcameras"> New Launched Cameras</ion-breadcrumb>
      
        <ion-breadcrumb href="#ott">OTT Platforms</ion-breadcrumb>
      
      </ion-breadcrumbs>
