Hi Ronak,      
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.       
 Please follow the steps below to configure NavigationDrawer control in your application.    
Step 1: Add the following listed assemblies to your application.       
·         Syncfusion.Grid.Base

·         Syncfusion.Shared.Base      
·         Syncfusion.Shared.Windows      
·         Syncfusion.Tools.Base

Step 2:  Set the NavigationDrawer settings.      
You have to set the NavigationDrawer Panel Width and Height. Make use of the below Code example.       
Code Example: [C#]      
this.navigationDrawer1.DrawerWidth = this.Width / 4;      
this.navigationDrawer1.DrawerHeight = this.Height;      
Step 3: Populate the DrawerMenuItems.       
You have to populate the DrawerMenuItems in it. Refer to the below Code example.      
Code example: [C#]

A Navigation Drawer is used to navigate the pages and show the page inside the navigation drawer container,

the below solution you provide it opens a new form and once the forms are closed the navigation drawer stop working, and he is not able to open the forms again, 

my query was i want to keep navigation drawer a parent and forms as a child pages and they should be added to navigation drawer space

Hi Ronak,  
Yes, we have checked the reason for this reported exception from various technical sites. Based on the information we found, the reported problem mostly occurs when trying to access the disposed items. Since it is not happening in the sample provided in our side, please confirm if you are accessing disposed items in your modified sample project.    
Also refer to the MSDN Forum link for further reference, and if this does not help, please send us the issue reproducing modified sample to check and provide a prompt solution at the earliest.

Interesting example but the problem is the user can no longer swipe the navigation drawer open.

Hi Emilio, 
We have modified the sample, for open the Navigation Drawer as longer. We just remove the ToggleDrawer() method from itemClick() Method. Please refer the following sample,
