accordion getter option active always returns null

Hi there ...

I'm trying unsuccessfully to grab the id/index of the active pane of an accordion widget. For example, using the example.html file that came with jqueryUI, I have:

$("#accordion").accordion({ header: "h3"});

<h2 class="demoHeaders">Accordion</h2> <div id="accordion">


<h3><a href="#">First</a></h3> <div>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. Lorem

ipsum dolor sit amet. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.</div>

</div> <div>

<h3><a href="#">Second</a></h3> <div>Phasellus mattis tincidunt


</div> <div>

<h3><a href="#">Third</a></h3> <div>Nam dui erat, auctor a, dignissim




I then added a button which called a function in order to show me which pane was active:

$("#testAcc").click(function() {

var foo =

$('#accordion').accordion('option', 'active');

alert(foo); return false;


This function always reports 'null'. If I set the accordion's initial structure to have active=false, the click function always returns 'false'. I must be daft here as in the documentation they say that this pattern (('option', 'active')) is the getter for the active element, but it seems to only ever report the initial state.
