    Hi,

    the RadSideDrawer implementation seems to be a page-level action so far.

    We have many different pages in our app and there should be one global main menu within a RadSideDrawer, but we try to prevent defining the drawer in every single xml-file. We have already outsourced the drawerContent in a separate xml-definition.

    Will it be possible some day to define one global RadSideDrawer and to include it the app globally?

     

    Best regards

    Hello Marc,

    Thanks for the question.
    We are aware that there should be a capability for an app-level side drawer however we have not planned it yet. Is this critical for you? The drawer content sharing should do the trick even though you will have a little boiler-plate drawer xml on each of your pages. If this is critical for you we will elevate it's priority.

    Please write again if you have more questions.

    Hello Victor,

    thank you for your fast response.

    "Critical" is maybe not the right word. Let's say it would be nice to have. If this feature was already planned, then I would wait for the next update before before including the RadSideDrawer into every single XML-page definition and then removing it from all the pages again because of the new app-level drawer, as we (will) have many pages in our app. That's why I asked for the status ;)

     

    Best regards

    Perhaps I'm completely out here...

    But with Angular 2 I can put the drawer in the root component's template and in the main set a page-router-outlet.

     

    This should be an app-level style drawer, unless the outlet won't work for some reason

    Hello Shlomi Assaf,

    You are absolutely right - you can use NativeScript + Angular-2 and use <page-router-outlet> to set it.
    I think Mark Geller was referring to the NativeScript core functionality where the applicable option at this moment is to create your RadSideDrawer and reuse it on each page with a boilerplate drawer xml.

    Hi Nikolay and Shlomi,

    I did not know that, thank you. We consider to build our app with angular 2 in the future, anyway. So this would bethe best solution for us, I guess.

    Best regards
