    I've worked on various ways to prevent drawer closing when itemClick event triggered but I couldn't figure a solution. Is there a way to disable auto closing when itemClick event performed?

    Hello Deniz,

    You could use a combination of the iitemClick and hide events of the Drawer to achieve the desired. In the itemClick event, you are setting a flag that an item has been clicked:

    var shouldPrevent = false;
    itemClick: function(e) {            
      shouldPrevent = true;

    While in the hide event, if that flag is true, you are preventing the default execution of the logic:

    hide: function(e) {
      if(shouldPrevent) {
        shouldPrevent = false;

    Here is a small Dojo sample implementing the above:
