ExpansionPanel Default State

You can configure the default state of The Kendo UI for jQuery ExpansionPanel widget by using the disabled, expanded, toggleable and animation properties.

ExpansionPanel Disabled State

You can disable the Kendo UI ExpansionPanel component and make the user unable to expand or collapse the panel. To configure this state, set the disabled property to true.

<div id="brazil">
            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.
        </div>

    <script>
        $('#brazil').kendoExpansionPanel({
            title: 'Brazil',
            subTitle: 'South America',
            disabled: true
        });
    </script>

            expanded: true
        });

            toggleable: false
        });
    </script>
