indeed the behavior in this case is interesting. We are still pondering on an the best way to handle it. The two widgets in fact exhibit somewhat contradicting behavior:
- The iOS tableview navigates when tapped or swiped (as long as you swipe across one item). You can check this in the iOS settings screen, for instance.
- The drawer also handles the swipe event.
Neither widget can claim rights over the swipe gesture; If the listview handles it, the drawer will not open on swipe. If the drawer handles it, the listview (and several other widgets) will suffer from reduced usability, as they will be affected only by precise taps.
In our next release, the drawer will feature a new configuration option - swipeToOpen. If set to false, the drawer will not open on swipe, yielding somewhat better behavior than the current.
In case you have any suggestions about the correct way to handle it, do not hesitate to share them with us.
