Initializing the ExpansionPanel

The following example demonstrates how to define the ExpansionPanel by using the ExpansionPanel HtmlHelper.

    @(Html.Kendo().ExpansionPanel()
            .Name("brazil")
            .Title("Brazil")
            .SubTitle("South America")
            .Expanded(true)
            .Content("The word 'Brazil' likely comes from the Portuguese word for brazilwood, a tree that once grew plentifully along the Brazilian coast. In Portuguese, brazilwood is called pau-brasil, with the word brasil commonly given the etymology 'red like an ember', formed from brasa ('ember') and the suffix -il (from -iculum or -ilium). As brazilwood produces a deep red dye, it was highly valued by the European textile industry and was the earliest commercially exploited product from Brazil.")
            )

            .Expanded(true)
            .Content("...")
            )

    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(function () {
            // The Name() of the ExpansionPanel is used to get its client-side instance.
            var expansionPanel = $("#brazil").data("kendoExpansionPanel");
            console.log(expansionPanel);
