    1. No load from content?  is that planned.

    2. if I try .Content(@<text>@Html.Action("getCompanyForm", "Companies")</text>) it fails spectacularly.  pushes the content out of the content container completely and puts it below the content below the container "outside" in the dom.  I was hoping that i could change the content dynamically by loading a different partial view with a specific parameter.

    3. Cannot configure so that it doesn't shrink to icons by default?

    Hi Patrick,

    The Kendo UI Drawer's content configuration accepts an HTML string. If you would like to load the content from a partial view, you would have to make use of the jquery.ajax() request.

    1. Set the content to an empty element:

    .Content("<div id='drawerContainer'></div>")

    2. In the document.ready load the view in the content:

    $(function (e) {
            url: "/Home/MyCustom",
            method: 'GET',
            success: function (result) {

    3. Return the partial view:

    public ActionResult MyCustom()
        return PartialView("GridPartialView");

    As per not allowing it to collapse by default, simply subscribe to the Change event of the Drawer and prevent the execution:

    function onHide(e) {

    This way, it would close only if the user clicks on the "sandwich" icon. 

    As per the LoadContentFrom functionality, I would recommend that you submit a feature request at our public Feedback portal at:


    Let me know in case additional assistance is required.
