WinForms NavigationView Overview

As of R2 2022 SP1 Telerik UI for WinForms suite offers a standalone RadNavigationView control. It provides a collapsible navigation pane that helps implement the hamburger menu pattern and automatically adapts the pane's display mode to different control sizes. The idea of the control is to be a top-level container and to contain all the controls and views that would be typically placed on a form. The menu pane is for navigation between different views and is not meant to contain actions.

RadNavigationView actually represents a RadPageView with already applied ViewMode to NavigationView. The whole API that is available for the PageViewMode.NavigationView is also valid for RadNavigationView.
