Getting Started

This example will guide you through the steps needed to add a basic RadSideDrawer control in your application.

Before you proceed, please, take a look at these articles and follow the instructions to setup your app:

Example

If your app is setup, you are ready to add a RadSideDrawer control.

You can proceed with defining the component. The DrawerContent represents the hidden view (in it you could place navigational UI, any common setting, etc), while the MainContent hosts the main View of your app.

<telerikPrimitives:RadSideDrawer x:Name="drawer" DrawerLength="200">
    <telerikPrimitives:RadSideDrawer.MainContent>
        <Label Text="Main content" />
    </telerikPrimitives:RadSideDrawer.MainContent>
    <telerikPrimitives:RadSideDrawer.DrawerContent>
        <StackLayout>
            <Button Text="Mail" />
            <Button Text="Calendar" />
            <Button Text="People" />
            <Button Text="Tasks" />
        </StackLayout>
    </telerikPrimitives:RadSideDrawer.DrawerContent>
</telerikPrimitives:RadSideDrawer>
var drawerContent = new StackLayout();
drawerContent.Children.Add(new Button { Text = "Mail" });
drawerContent.Children.Add(new Button { Text = "Calendar" });
drawerContent.Children.Add(new Button { Text = "People" });
drawerContent.Children.Add(new Button { Text = "Tasks" });

var sideDrawer = new RadSideDrawer
{
    MainContent = new Label { Text = "Main content" },
    DrawerContent = drawerContent,
    DrawerLength = 200
};

You also have to add the following namespace:

xmlns:telerikPrimitives="clr-namespace:Telerik.XamarinForms.Primitives;assembly=Telerik.XamarinForms.Primitives"
using Telerik.XamarinForms.Primitives;

Finally, set the drawer as content of your page.

Here is the result:

SideDrawer example

SDK Browser and QSF applications contain different examples that show RadSideDrawer's main features. You can find the applications in the Examples and QSF folders of your local Telerik UI for Xamarin installation.
