    Currently the Hamburger icon is on the right of the Nav Bar in iOS - how can I move it to the left? Most side drawers open to the left, so it will make sense to have the icon on the left as well.

    Hello Martin,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can take a look at the documentation provided by Xamarin about the iOS Navigation Controller. Unfortunately, we can not help you further, since this issue is not related to our product.

    Hi Rosy,

    The hamburger on the right makes no sense as I've never seen an app with it there, also the overflow indicator in Lollipop will go there making touch very difficult.

    Can you use it conjunction with MasterDetailForm page? 

    I can open a ticket about this if you prefer.

    The actual control works very well and can be used as a menu selector to fire of events in the parent bindingcontext. 


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
                 BindingContext="{Binding Source={x:Static mvvm:App.Locator}, Path=Homepage}"
        <ToolbarItem Clicked="OnToolbarButtonClick" Order="Primary" Priority="0" Icon="IconMenu"/>
        <primitives:RadSideDrawer x:Name="Drawer" DrawerTransitionType="SlideInOnTop" DrawerLocation="Left">
            <OnPlatform x:TypeArguments="x:Double" iOS="150" Android="400"/>
            <StackLayout BackgroundColor="#17817C">
              <Label Text="Drawer Content" FontSize="Medium" HorizontalOptions="Center"/>
              <Button Text="Order Search"/>
              <Button Text="Order List" Command="{Binding Source={x:Reference Home}, Path=BindingContext.OrderlistCommand}" />
              <Button Text="Scheduled"/>
              <Button Text="Logout"/>
            <StackLayout Orientation="Vertical" VerticalOptions="CenterAndExpand">
              <Label Text="Dashboard goes here" HorizontalOptions="Center"></Label>

    Just a shame the button is on the right, seems all wrong for Android :/
