# Can't write within beta_expander when the expander is inside a column from beta_columns?

Hi!

I’ve found that beta_expander works exactly as expected (with its arg ‘expanded’ as False by default):

``````        # Works great!
``````

But if I try to add an expander within a column from beta_columns(), although the expander appears as expected in the column of the layout, I can’t get content to write to the frame inside the expander:

``````        # Doesn't work as expected
col1, col2 = st.beta_columns(2)
``````

Here, ‘More info!’ appears below the expander, as if I had just written `st.write('More info!')`

Am I doing something wrong, or is this behaviour just not supported (yet?)!?

Thanks so much

Hello Paul,

Can you try this:

``````col1, col2 = st.beta_columns(2)
