.NET MAUI SideDrawer Overview

Telerik UI for .NET MAUI SideDrawer is designed to enable users to visualize a hidden view in their applications. That view can host navigation UI, common settings or any other UI of your choice. It can be visualized using a flick gesture on mobile or custom UI which has to manipulate the IsOpen property on Desktop. In addition, the developer of the application can set the exact position the drawer will be visualized.
