Using this action, you can open and close the drawers with a tap of a button. For example, opening the drawer from the widget placed outside the Appbar and closing it from the widget placed inside the drawer.


Before you add the drawer action, you'll need to have a drawer widget on a page. If you haven't already done so, you can learn how to add a drawer.

Types of drawer action

There are three types of actions you can add to the drawer.

  1. Open Drawer: Opens the regular drawer.

  2. Open End Drawer: Opens the end drawer (open from the opposite direction of the regular drawer).

  3. Close Drawers: Closes all the open drawers.
