SideDrawer: [UWP] Add Opening/Closing events

Posted on: 09 Oct 2020 14:42

Hello Robert,

I am sorry to hear about your disappointment with how the DatePicker, ListView, and SideDrawer behave on UWP and the mentioned missing features are not acceptable for using the controls. 

Regarding the prevent close on background tapped for SideDrawe on Android, could you please elaborate more on this? Do you have the following feature request in mind: https://feedback.telerik.com/xamarin/1366070-sidedrawer-expose-staysopen-property

We just ran into an issue with this functionality missing. 

There's already a problem with the Xamarin Forms RadSideDrawer not being up to par with the Android native drawer (the XF version is missing functionality like "prevent close on background tapped"), and now this…? 

What are we supposed to do?

We have tried multiple Telerik XF controls so far, and none of them are acceptable. DatePicker on UWP has no mouse scroll and is therefore entirely useless, ListView has huge keyboard and mouse bugs, SideDrawer is missing functionality related to closing the drawer...

Very disappointing.

This also affects the Closing command ID as well:


<sideDrawer:SideDrawerUserCommand Command="{Binding MyCommand}" Id="Closing" />


Only Closed works:


<sideDrawer:SideDrawerUserCommand Command="{Binding MyCommand}" Id="Closed" />
