In this article, we're going talk about shared states and actions for elements like Off canvas, dropdown and more.

  1. Toggle Hash
  2. Closing the toggleable
  3. Opening the Toggleable
  4. Programmatically

Toggleables offer the ability to display content on your pages dynamically through interactions or through code. They encompass Modals, Tabs, Dropdowns, and Off-canvas elements. They have a shared set of features we will go over here.

Toggle Hash

Toggle hash is the ability to open a toggleable from the URL hash or the # in a URL. They can be added on the page you are on or from another page linked out to this toggleable.

In this example we are setting a Tabs Toggle Hash to open-tab-one and using a button from the same page, we set the URL to #open-tab-one and thus when we click this button it opens this tab via the Toggle Hash.

Toggle Has Tab with Button

Closing the toggleable


Using Custom Attributes you can control all toggleable elements using Custom Attribute data-x-toggle-close=1 on another element. This can be useful if you have an element inside the element that needs to close the element as well as do something else. Internally the close button uses this.

Off Canvas Custom Attributes

Opening the Toggleable


First off the attribute you need is data-x-toggle. This tells the toggleable library to treat this as an open request. There are different types of opening in our theme.

  • data-x-toggle=1 default and direct open. Most of the time this is all you need.
  • data-x-toggle=collapse default same as 1.
  • data-x-toggle=layered same as 1, but opens inner toggles and has layer effects. Disabling scroll is a layer effect.
  • data-x-toggle=collapse-b For use in X / Pro built in headers for collapsing.
  • data-x-toggle=tab If trying to open a specific tab


The next you need is the ID of the toggleable you are trying to open. This can be set as well from a custom attribute. Internally this is the Style ID plus the Element ID (EX e356-e9). So in your custom element you would place something like data-x-toggleable=YOUR_TOGGLE.


We offer a couple of functions to control the state of a toggleable.

/** * Returns state by toggle id * * @param {String} id * @return {Boolean} */ window.xToggleGetState("my-toggleable"); /** * Returns state by DOM Element * * @param {HTMLElement} domElement * @return {Boolean} */ window.xToggleGetStateFromNode(domElement); /** * Update toggle state to true or false * * @param {String} id * @param {Boolean} state * */ window.xToggleUpdate(id, state); /** * Remove toggle from being updated by the toggleable library * * @param {String} id * */ window.xToggleDelete(id);

Hiding the default mobile menu by nav touch

// Find each mobile link $('.x-navbar a').each(function() { // On Click $(this).on('touchend click', function(){ // Timeout setTimeout(function() { // Toggle mobile menu to off window.xToggleUpdate('x-nav-wrap-mobile', false) }, 1000); }); });
