Collapse-O/Pro-Matic CSS Tricks II – Font Awesome Arrows

First make sure Font Awesome is installed.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.3.0/css/font-awesome.min.css">

Or use a plugin such as Font Awesome Icons to have it installed for you.

We are going to use the following two Font Awesome Arrows:

<i class="fa fa-arrow-circle-down"></i>

<i class="fa fa-arrow-circle-up"></i>

Next we want to create a new class for these arrows. We are going to use the name awesomearrows. The class definitions need look like so:

.collapseomatic.awesomearrows {
    background-image: none;
}
.collapseomatic.awesomearrows:before {
    font-family: FontAwesome;
    content: "\f0ab";
}
.colomat-close.awesomearrows {
    background-image: none;
}
.colomat-close.awesomearrows:before {
    font-family: FontAwesome;
    content: "\f0aa";
}

Now we need to assign the trigclass attribute our value of ‘awesomearrows’
