Hello, adding cfg.Fast to an existing project causes the Drawer to ignore the user swipes, for example:


//Called when application is started.
function OnStart()
    //Lock screen orientation to Portrait.
    app.SetOrientation( "Portrait" )
    //Create the main app layout with objects vertically centered.
    layMain = app.CreateLayout( "Linear", "VCenter,FillXY" )
    layMain.SetBackground( "/Res/drawable/android" )

    //Create a text label and add it to main layout.
    txt = app.CreateText( "<-- swipe from left" )
    txt.SetTextSize( 24, "dip" )
    layMain.AddChild( txt )
    //Create a drawer containing a menu list.
    //Add main layout and drawer to app.    
    app.AddLayout( layMain )
    app.AddDrawer( drawerScroll, "Left", drawerWidth )

//Create the drawer contents.
function CreateDrawer()
    //Create a layout for the drawer.
    //(Here we also put it inside a scroller to allow for long menus)
    drawerWidth = 0.75;
    drawerScroll = app.CreateScroller( drawerWidth, -1, "FillY" )
    drawerScroll.SetBackColor( "White" )
    layDrawer = app.CreateLayout( "Linear", "Left" )
    drawerScroll.AddChild( layDrawer )
    //Create layout for top of drawer.
    layDrawerTop = app.CreateLayout( "Absolute" )
    layDrawerTop.SetBackground( "/Sys/Img/GreenBack.jpg" )
    layDrawerTop.SetSize( drawerWidth, 0.23 )
    layDrawer.AddChild( layDrawerTop )
    //Add an icon to top layout.
    var img = app.CreateImage( "/Sys/Img/Icon.png", 0.15 )
    img.SetPosition( drawerWidth*0.06, 0.04 )
    layDrawerTop.AddChild( img )
    //Add user name to top layout.
    var txtUser = app.CreateText( "Dave Smart",-1,-1,"Bold")
    txtUser.SetPosition( drawerWidth*0.07, 0.155 )
    txtUser.SetTextColor( "White" )
    txtUser.SetTextSize( 13.7, "dip" )
    layDrawerTop.AddChild( txtUser )
    //Add user email to top layout.
    txtEmail = app.CreateText( "")
    txtEmail.SetPosition( drawerWidth*0.07, 0.185 )
    txtEmail.SetTextColor( "#bbffffff" )
    txtEmail.SetTextSize( 14, "dip" )
    layDrawerTop.AddChild( txtEmail )
    //Create menu layout.
    var layMenu = app.CreateLayout( "Linear", "Left" )
    layDrawer.AddChild( layMenu )
    //Add a list to menu layout (with the menu style option).
    var listItems = "Primary::[fa-home],Social::[fa-users],Promotions::[fa-tag]";
    lstMenu1 = app.CreateList( listItems, drawerWidth, -1, "Menu,Expand" )
    lstMenu1.SetColumnWidths( -1, 0.35, 0.18 )
    lstMenu1.SelectItemByIndex( 0, true )
    lstMenu1.SetItemByIndex( 0, "Primary", 21 )
    lstMenu1.SetOnTouch( lstMenu_OnTouch )
    layMenu.AddChild( lstMenu1 )
    //Add seperator to menu layout.
    var sep = app.CreateImage( null, drawerWidth,0.001,"fix", 2,2 )
    sep.SetSize( -1, 1, "px" )
    sep.SetColor( "#cccccc" )
    layMenu.AddChild( sep )
    //Add title between menus.
    txtTitle = app.CreateText( "All labels",-1,-1,"Left")
    txtTitle.SetTextColor( "#666666" )
    txtTitle.SetMargins( 16,12,0,0, "dip" )
    txtTitle.SetTextSize( 14, "dip" )
    layMenu.AddChild( txtTitle )
    //Add a second list to menu layout.
    var listItems = "Starred::[fa-star],Important::[fa-flag],Settings::[fa-cog]";
    lstMenu2 = app.CreateList( listItems, drawerWidth, -1, "Menu,Expand" )
    lstMenu2.SetColumnWidths( -1, 0.35, 0.18 )
    lstMenu2.SetOnTouch( lstMenu_OnTouch )
    layMenu.AddChild( lstMenu2 )

//Handle menu item selection.
function lstMenu_OnTouch( title, body, type, index )
    //Close the drawer.
    app.CloseDrawer( "Left" )
    //Highlight the chosen menu item in the appropriate list.
    if( this==lstMenu1 ) lstMenu2.SelectItemByIndex(-1)
    else lstMenu1.SelectItemByIndex(-1)
    this.SelectItemByIndex( index, true )
    app.ShowPopup( title )

any thoughts on how to make it work?

well, apparently, it has nothing to do with the cfg.Fast, after upgrading to ver 2.57 the drawer doesn't work.

I think you'll find it is a cfg.Fast problem

You can't just comment cfg.Fast our. You need to ensure the string isn't in the source anywhere

It's not just a cfg.Fast problem - 
drawer doesn't respond to clicks when using cfg.Node.

Adding cfg.Node to the Drawer Menu sample causes it to 
no longer function.

I reported that drawer doesn't work in hybrid in the beta group.
I think it gave me an error (function createdrawer not found).
Does opendrawer work?
Regards, ah

With cfg.Node the drawer will show and can be 
dismissed and taps on the menu items have no 
effect other than the visual feedback.

Here is a work-around for the cfg.Fast and drawer problem - 

We need to delay the AddDrawer call till after the app is displayed like this - 

setTimeout( ()=>{app.AddDrawer( drawerScroll, "Left", drawerWidth )}, 0 )

Not sure why, but will investigate

I'm happy to report that the cfg.Node issue with drawer appears to be fixed in the latest beta :-)
