You can handle the CustomItemFilter event to customize the AccordionControl‘s filtering logic.

The following code sample shows how to exclude an accordion item from the search result:

<dxa:AccordionControl ShowSearchControl="True" CustomItemFilter="OnCustomItemFilter">
   <dxa:AccordionItem Header="Item1" Glyph="{dx:DXImage Image=Image_32x32.png}"/>
   <dxa:AccordionItem Header="Item2" Glyph="{dx:DXImage Image=Map_32x32.png}"/>
   <dxa:AccordionItem Header="Item3" Glyph="{dx:DXImage Image=Image_32x32.png}"/>
void OnCustomItemFilter(object sender, AccordionCustomItemFilterEventArgs e) {
   if(((AccordionItem)e.Item).Header.ToString() == "Item1") {
      e.Accepted = false;
