No image property for plain navigation drawer items

I am using the NavigationDrawer on a WinForms application. I defined a header item followed by 6 regular items (not header and not footer). While the Header and Footer drawer items have an image property, there is no image property for the regular navigation drawer items and I would like to display an icon to the left of the navigation drawer item to make it more appealing (i.e. account, profile, etc.).

The only image property on the regular N.D. items is the background image that can be tiled or stretched but that is not as useful as an icon that can be displayed to the left or right of the navigation drawer item. At least I can't see any on the designer.

Hi Emilio, 
Thank you for your patience. 
We have implemented your feature request “NavigationDrawer MenuItem image support”. We can now set Image for the menu items in NavigationDrawer using the newly implemented “Image” property and it can be aligned using “ImageAlign” property. Please find the following code snippet for the same, 
drawerMenuItem2.Image = Image.FromFile("D:/Audit-WF.png"); 
drawerMenuItem2.ImageAlign = ImageAlignment.Left; 
The patch for it can be downloaded from the below location, 
Recommended approach – exe will perform automatic configuration        
Please find the patch setup here:     
Advanced approach – use only if you have specific needs and can directly replace existing assemblies for your build environment                         
Please find the patch assemblies alone from:   
Please find the Nugets from the below location:       
Assembly Version: 
Installation Directions:   
This patch should replace the files “Syncfusion.Tools.Windows” under the following folder.   
$system drive:\ Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\$Version # \precompiledassemblies\$Version#\4.6 
Eg : $system drive:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\precompiledassemblies\\4.6 
To automatically run the Assembly Manager, please check the Run assembly manager checkbox option while installing the patch. If this option is unchecked, the patch will replace the assemblies in precompiled assemblies’ folder only. Then, you will have to manually copy and paste them to the preferred location or you will have to run the Syncfusion Assembly Manager application (available from the Syncfusion Dashboard, installed as a shortcut in the Application menu) to re-install assemblies.   
Note: To change how you receive bug fixes, ask your license management portal admin to change your project’s patch delivery mode.

Please note that we have created this patch for version specifically to resolve the following issue reported in the forum 145161.
