How To Create SideBar With Expanding/Collapsing Menu


I saw on the My Dashboard page in your website (https://www.syncfusion.com/account) that you have a sidebar with a menu that has expanding/collapsing top level menu items - is this something you can do in the asp.net core sidebar control? I have scoured the demo app, but the nearest I could find was the sidebar with the popout menu items (https://ej2.syncfusion.com/aspnetcore/Sidebar/SidebarMenu).

Hi Danacon, 
Yes you can achieve a view just like - https://www.syncfusion.com/account using our EJ2 Sidebar and Menu control. After rendering the Menu control inside Sidebar, enable hamburgerMode and set orientation to “vertical“ for the Menu control to achieve your required view.  
<ejs-menu id="main-menubar" items="ViewBag.data" hamburgerMode="true" orientation="Vertical" showItemOnClick="true"></ejs-menu> 
After that, you can customize the styles for the Menu and Sidebar control as required. 
We have prepared a sample for your reference achieving your required view. Please find it below, 
Please let us know if you have any concerns.
