Hi Stefano,

Thanks for the update.

Yes, We can navigate to the internal page by using ajax. You could find the below steps to achieve your scenario.

First, we have to create an internal pages from which we are going to get the content while clicking the items in the drawer. Once, we have done with creating pages we can render navigation drawer with mousedown event to handle the ajax post as in below the code snippets below.


<div class="navi">

        <div id="target" class="icon-target">




    <div id="navpane">


            <li data-ej-imageclass="icon-home" data-ej-text="Home"></li>

            <li data-ej-imageclass="icon-profile" data-ej-text="Profile"></li>

            <li data-ej-imageclass="icon-photo" data-ej-text="Photos"></li>

            <li data-ej-imageclass="icon-locations" data-ej-text="Location"></li>



    <!-- Default Page Content-->

    <div id="render">

        This page displays the content of the item in drawer on click.


    <script type="text/javascript">

        $(function () {

            $("#navpane").ejNavigationDrawer({ enableListView: true, targetId: "target", listViewSettings: { mouseDown: 'slideMenuClick', persistSelection: true } });



Now, we have to handle $.ajax() function to load the internal page content to the current page. Please find the below code snippets.


function slideMenuClick(args) {


                url: "ajaxpages/" + args.text + ".html", //To get internal page url

                type: "POST",

                success: function (e, status, response) {

                    //Success handler of content loading while list click happens


                    $('#target').html(args.text);//To change the header based on the internal page content



                error: function (error) {





For your convenience, We have created a simple sample and attached it in the below link.

Tks for your assistence, I 've modified the  slideMenuClick function .
Below the row updated for Lightswitch implementation

function slideMenuClick(args) {
    switch (args.text) {
        case "Home":
            scr = "DashBoard";                                //the  Lightswitch screen neme
    msls.application.showScreen(scr, null, null);    // this row is most important ............. compose the url in LS format

thank to all for the great work
