The Drawer component is a sliding panel that displays additional options and menus when expanded. It is typically used in mobile layouts and responsive web designs where screen space is limited.

When closed, the Drawer component is represented by an icon button positioned at the edge of the screen. Upon interaction, the drawer slides into view, revealing its content. Users can interact with the exposed content, perform actions, and navigate menus. To dismiss the drawer, users can either tap outside the drawer or use the close button.

Configuration

  1. Open your store theme in the code editor of your preference.
  2. Open the manifest.json file and add the vtex.store-drawer app to your store theme dependencies as in the following:

_10
"dependencies": {
_10
"vtex.store-drawer": "0.x"
_10
}

  1. Add the drawer block to your app. The following example is from the Store Theme.

_16
"drawer": {
_16
"children": [
_16
"menu#drawer"
_16
]
_16
},
_16
_16
"menu#drawer": {
_16
"children": [
_16
"menu-item#category-clothing",
_16
"menu-item#category-decoration",
_16
"menu-item#custom-sale"
_16
],
_16
"props": {
_16
"orientation": "vertical"
_16
}
_16
},

  1. Use the drawer-trigger block to customize the icon that triggers the opening of the drawer as follows:

_27
"drawer": {
_27
"children": [
_27
"menu#drawer"
_27
],
_27
"blocks": ["drawer-trigger"]
_27
},
_27
_27
"drawer-trigger": {
_27
"children": ["rich-text#open-drawer"]
_27
},
_27
_27
"rich-text#open-drawer": {
_27
"props": {
_27
"text": "Open drawer"
_27
}
_27
}
_27
_27
"menu#drawer": {
_27
"children": [
_27
"menu-item#category-clothing",
_27
"menu-item#category-decoration",
_27
"menu-item#custom-sale"
_27
],
_27
"props": {
_27
"orientation": "vertical"
_27
}
_27
},

  1. Use the drawer-header block to customize the header containing the button that closes the drawer. For example:

_14
// blocks.json
_14
{
_14
"drawer": {
_14
"blocks": ["drawer-header#my-drawer"]
_14
},
_14
"drawer-header#my-drawer": {
_14
"children": [
_14
// you need to include the block `drawer-close-button` somewhere inside here
_14
"flex-layout.row#something",
_14
// ...
_14
"drawer-close-button"
_14
]
_14
}
_14
}

Using the Drawer as a standalone component

If you are using this component as a standalone module, you will need to import it into the specific component where you want to use it. For example:


_20
import { Drawer, DrawerHeader, DrawerCloseButton } from "vtex.store-drawer";
_20
_20
const Menu = () => (
_20
<Drawer
_20
header={
_20
<DrawerHeader>
_20
<DrawerCloseButton />
_20
</DrawerHeader>
_20
}
_20
>
_20
<ul>
_20
<li>Link 1</li>
_20
<li>Link 2</li>
_20
<li>Link 3</li>
_20
<li>Link 4</li>
_20
<li>Link 5</li>
_20
<li>Link 6</li>
_20
</ul>
_20
</Drawer>
_20
);
