Mini View

When the Drawer is collapsed, it is not visible at all by default. You can, however, leave a small hint for the user that shows the icons of the items so they can navigate with just a single action.

To enable the mini view when the drawer is collapsed (minimized), set the MiniMode parameter to true. By default this parameter is set to false.

Mini View behavior

Observe the behavior of the MiniMode.

<TelerikButton OnClick="@(() => DrawerRef.ToggleAsync())" Icon="@SvgIcon.Menu">Toggle drawer</TelerikButton>
<TelerikButton OnClick="@(() => MiniMode = !MiniMode)">Toggle MiniMode</TelerikButton>
<TelerikDrawer Data="@Data"

@code {
    public TelerikDrawer<DrawerItem> DrawerRef { get; set; }
    public bool MiniMode { get; set; } = true;
    public IEnumerable<DrawerItem> Data { get; set; } =
        new List<DrawerItem>
            new DrawerItem { Text = "Counter", Icon = SvgIcon.Plus },
            new DrawerItem { Text = "FetchData", Icon = SvgIcon.GridLayout },
