Keep Drawer content

Please provide an option for the Drawer so that the developer can configure whether the item content is destroyed and recreated when collapsing/expanding the collapsible section of the component or not.

Currently all inner items content is destroyed when the Drawer is collapsed, and recreated again on expand. This imposes additional overhead when using Kendo UI for jQuery components inside the Drawer item templates, as they need to be destroyed on collapse and reinitialized on expand.

Further scenarios in which having such an option, is using forms or other components that need state persistence within the Drawer items templates.

We decided to decline this request due to the low customer demand it generated. Upvoting the item is still possible, and we will reevaluate it in the future if it generates greater interest.
