    DrawerContentView

    The SfNavigationDrawer control contains the DrawerContentView, a part of the DrawerView panel. The DrawerContentView displays the navigation items that you need to jump to.

  • xml
  • <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer.DrawerContentView>
    			<Grid Background="Black">
    				<ListBox x:Name="list" ItemsSource="{Binding Contents}">
    					<ListBox.ItemTemplate>
    						<DataTemplate>
    							<TextBlock  Text="{Binding Name}" Padding="15" TextAlignment="Center" FontSize="23" Foreground="White"/>
    						</DataTemplate>
    					</ListBox.ItemTemplate>
    				</ListBox>
    			</Grid>
    		</syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer.DrawerContentView>

    DrawerFooterView

    Gets or sets the footer for the DrawerView panel in the SfNavigationDrawer control.

  • xml
  • <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer.DrawerFooterView>
    			<StackPanel Orientation="Vertical" VerticalAlignment="Center" HorizontalAlignment="Center">
    				<Image Source="/Assets/NavigationDrawer/User.png" Height="80" Width="100"/>
    				<TextBlock HorizontalAlignment="Center" Margin="0 10 0 0" Text="James Pollock"/>
    		    </StackPanel>
    		</syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer.DrawerFooterView>

    DrawerHeaderView

    Gets or sets the DrawerHeaderView of the DrawerView panel in the SfNavigationDrawer control.

  • xml
  • <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer.DrawerHeaderView>
              <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical" VerticalAlignment="Center" HorizontalAlignment="Center">
    						<Image Source="/Assets/NavigationDrawer/User.png" Height="80" Width="100"/>
    						<TextBlock HorizontalAlignment="Center" Margin="0 10 0 0" Text="James Pollock"/>
    					</StackPanel>
    		  </syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer.DrawerHeaderView>

    DrawerHeight

    Gets or sets the height for the DrawerView panel in the NavigationDrawer control.

    <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer x:Name="drawer" DrawerHeight="400"/>
    drawer.DrawerHeight = 400d;

    DrawerWidth

    Gets or sets the width for the DrawerView panel in the NavigationDrawer control.

    <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer x:Name="drawer" DrawerWidth="200"/>
    drawer.DrawerWidth = 200d;

    TouchThreshold

    Gets or sets the threshold value from the edges for easy panning from the edges. The default value of TouchThreshold is 15.

    <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer x:Name="drawer" TouchThreshold="25"/>
    drawer.TouchThreshold = 25d;

    Animation Duration

    Gets or sets the TimeSpan value, by which the DrawerContent can be brought to view.

    <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer x:Name="drawer" AnimationDuration="100"/>
    drawer.AnimationDuration = 100;

    Position

    The Position property specifies the position of the DrawerView panel. The Position property has the following four options:

    • Left
    • Right
    • Top
    • Bottom

    The default position is Left.

    <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer x:Name="drawer" Position="Left" ></syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer>
    drawer.Position = Position.Left;

    The following code example shows how to set the SfNavigationDrawer to the right.

    <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer x:Name="drawer" Position="Right" ></syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer>
    drawer.Position = Position.Right;

    The following code example shows how to set the SfNavigationDrawer at the top.

    <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer x:Name="drawer" Position="Top" ></syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer>
    drawer.Position = Position.Top;

    The following code example shows how to set the SfNavigationDrawer at the bottom.

    <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer x:Name="drawer" Position="Bottom" ></syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer>
    drawer.Position = Position.Bottom;

    Transition

    The Transition property specifies the animations for the DrawerView panel. The Transition property has the following options:

    • SlideOnTop
    • Push
    • Reveal

    The default transition is SlideOnTop. That draws the DrawerContent on top of the main content.

    <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer x:Name="drawer" Transition="SlideOnTop" ></syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer>
    drawer.Transition = Transition.SlideOnTop;

    The following code example shows how to set Transition as Push to SfNavigationDrawer. This transition moves the Drawer and main content simultaneously.

    <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer x:Name="drawer" Transition="Push" ></syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer>
    drawer.Transition = Transition.Push;

    The following code example shows how to set Transition as Reveal to SfNavigationDrawer. In this transition, the Drawer content is stable and the main content is moved to reveal the drawer content.

    <syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer x:Name="drawer" Transition="Reveal" ></syncfusion:SfNavigationDrawer>
    drawer.Transition = Transition.Reveal;
