Getting Started with KendoReact Drawer

The KendoReact Drawer component is a dismissible panel for navigating in responsive web applications.

It also enables the user to change the content of a specific section of the page.

The KendoReact Drawer is distributed through NPM under the kendo-react-layout package.

The Drawer component is part of KendoReact, a professionally built commercial UI library. To try out this component you need to sign up for a 30-day trial, which gives you access to the full KendoReact library.

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates the Drawer in action.

import * as React from 'react';
import * as ReactDOM from 'react-dom';

import { HashRouter, Switch, Route } from 'react-router-dom';

import Inbox from './Inbox.jsx';
import Notifications from './Notifications.jsx';
import Calendar from './Calendar.jsx';
import Attachments from './Attachments.jsx';
import Favourites from './Favourites.jsx';
import DrawerRouterContainer from './DrawerRouterContainer.jsx';

                <Route exact={true} path="/" component={Inbox} />
                <Route exact={true} path="/notifications" component={Notifications} />
                <Route exact={true} path="/calendar" component={Calendar} />
                <Route exact={true} path="/attachments" component={Attachments} />

        {`my-app {
