Drawer Icons

You can add Telerik Font or SVG icons to the Drawer items. The component also supports custom icons.

To use Drawer item icons, define a property in the component model class and assign the property name to the IconField parameter of the Drawer. The model property can hold a FontIcon enum, an ISvgIcon, or a string that signifies a CSS class.

If the icon property name in the Drawer model is Icon, there is no need to set the IconField parameter.

How to use icons in the Telerik Drawer

<TelerikDrawer Data="@Data"
        <TelerikButton OnClick="@(() => DrawerRef.ToggleAsync())" Icon="@FontIcon.Menu">Toggle drawer</TelerikButton>
        <div class="m-5">
            Selected Item: @SelectedItem?.Text

    /* Third-party icon libraries should provide these styles out-of-the-box. */

    /* base styles for all custom icons */
    .my-icon {
        /* Define size, position and font styles here. */
        width: 1em;
        height: auto;
        font-size: 16px;

    /* styles for specific custom icons */
    .my-icon-purple {
        /* define a background image or a font icon glyph here */
        background: purple;
        flex-shrink: 0;

@code {
    private TelerikDrawer<DrawerItem> DrawerRef { get; set; }

    private bool DrawerExpanded { get; set; } = true;

    private DrawerItem SelectedItem { get; set; }

    private IEnumerable<DrawerItem> Data { get; set; } = new List<DrawerItem>()
        new DrawerItem { Text = "Current Location", Icon = FontIcon.Pin },
        new DrawerItem { Text = "Navigation", Icon = FontIcon.Globe },
        new DrawerItem { Text = "Favorites", Icon = "my-icon my-icon-purple" },

    public class DrawerItem
        public string Text { get; set; }
        public object Icon { get; set; }
