Touchkit: Slide Panel as overlay for navigation

I very much like the slide panel overlays in several ios apps which gives plenty space for navigation menus without moving to another page. I mean this: [url=http://jquerymobile.com/demos/1.3.0-beta.1/docs/panels/index.html]
.

Is this possible with touchkit?

Thanks,

Hi,

Currently there is no such built in component. If you have some CSS skills, this can be implemented quite easily. You could for example keep the side panel (e.g. CssLayout) component all the time in the client side, but just move it aside with css by default. Then have a special style name that moves it over your main UI. This is how I implemented a “flip effect” to one TouchKit example app:

We will be adding this kind of components in next versions. If you wish to promote your suggestions you can create enhancement tickets to dev.vaadin.com and use feature voting in your pro account.

cheers,
