Setting Sliding Panel Content in WPF Navigation Drawer (SfNavigationDrawer)

The DrawerView is a panel that is the hidden content, brought to the view by manipulations like panning or swiping through the edges. The DrawerView has three sections namely:

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

  • 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.

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