Getting Started

This section allows you to learn and how to configure the NavigationDrawer control in your application.

Create Navigation Drawer control

Refer the Getting Started page of the Introduction part to know more about the basic system requirements and the steps to configure the Syncfusion components in an ASP.NET Core application. Here we have used listview to show list of items such as home, profile, photos and location where you can navigate to desired page by clicking on the option available in the drawer. Use the below code in the corresponding view page.

  • cshtml
  • <div class="row">

                                    The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) and Britain, is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe. The country includes the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland and many smaller islands. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK that shares a land border with another state—the Republic of Ireland. Apart from this land border, the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean in the west and north, the North Sea in the east, the English Channel in the south and the Irish Sea in the west.
