The WinForms Navigation Drawer is a sliding panel menu that comes out from the edge of the window and displays contents from a hidden panel. It can be shown by swiping from any of the screen edges or on demand. You can display the menu vertically or horizontally at the left or right side of the view.


The transition property can be used to customize the animation of the drawer.


The position property can be used to customize the position of the drawer. The drawer can be placed in the left, right, top, or bottom positions.

We do not sell the WinForms Navigation Drawer control separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion WinForms suite, which contains over 100 WinForms controls, including Navigation Drawer. A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for WinForms suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, our 100+ WinForms controls, including Navigation Drawer, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their Navigation Drawer alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 100+ WinForms controls for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.

Maxigig creates software to provide management information in the granite fabrication environment. Thanks to Syncfusion, we have saved around 300 hours of development time, enabling us to spend more time focusing on our company's core competencies by relegating common functionality to the Syncfusion libraries. We can achieve a higher level of professionalism in the products we offer.
