Kendo Drawer that implements Overlay and Reveal animations
We reaally need to use the overlay animation, our client is driving us nuts with it. They are showing us the examples in Jquery mobile panel ( and asking us why we are using Kendo if we cant deliver this animations. 

Please help us voting for this animatiosn.

Hey everyone!

With the R2 2019 release we introduced a new standalone drawer widget that you can check out right here. As a part of this new widget we have the ability to either operate in a "push" state (pushing content over) or "overlay" state (which is discussed here) - this demo showcases the difference. Marking this item as completed since this covers the scenario described and discussed here!

Sad that Kendo UI still doesn't support overlay effect in drawer. The overlay effect in drawer is standard behaviour in mobile world. In many cases lack of this minor feature is a deal braker for Kendo. Users are expecting consistent mobile experience in their apps!

I would highly recommend implementing this feature to drawer.

It is pretty much standard drawer behavior now to expand out on top of the main view.  Having it push the view to the side is strange.  This would really help produce a more consistent mobile experience for users.  Would love for Kendo to consider this enhancement.
