make this side navigation show one sub menu at a time?

Issue

I made a side navigation with two menus, each has a submenu button, which when clicked will reveal it’s submenu.

Currently, a submenu opens or closes when you click on it.

————————————— What I want to achieve —————————————

I want just one submenu to be open at a time. That is, if a submenu is already open and the user clicks on another submenu button, the initial one closes, while the current one opens.

const sub_menu = document.querySelectorAll('.sub_menu');
sub_menu.forEach((item) => {
    const subMenuHeader = item.querySelector('.sub_menu_header')
    const subMenuBody = item.querySelector('.sub_menu_body')
    subMenuHeader.addEventListener('click', () => {
        if (!subMenuBody.classList.contains('active')) {
            subMenuBody.classList.add('active');
        } else {
            subMenuBody.classList.remove('active');
        }
    })
})

Please, help me achieve this feature.

Solution

Before you toggle class remove class of previous element.

if(document.querySelector(".sub_menu_body.active")) {
  document.querySelector(".sub_menu_body.active").classList.remove("active");
}
