SideNav will not collapse on click of SideNavLink

Topic: SideNav will not collapse on click of SideNavLink

mattagape pro asked 4 years ago

Hello, I looked at How to close SideNav after selecting an SideNavLink ...but I am still not able to close SideNav when selecting a SideNavLink. With my SideNavLink, I invoke closeRightSideNav ...
  closeRightSideNav = () => {
      isRightOpen: false
...this way...
<SideNavLink onClick={this.closeRightSideNav} to="business">Business</SideNavLink>
...but even though that method is invoked onClick, and the state of isRightOpen is toggled to false, the <SideNav> will not collapse I'm a bit confused about the isOpen prop for SideNav.  Any help on this would be much appreciated.

Hello Matt, Your SideNav should have triggerOpening prop passed, like this:  
<SideNav triggerOpening={this.state.isRightOpen}>
  This boolean property determines if SideNav is closed or open. Docs:   Best regards, Jakub

I'd meant to say,.. I've actually been using... SideNav hidden triggerOpening={this.props.isOpen} className="side-nav-light" breakWidth={1300}

The only thing I deduced from description of the problem is that you do not use isRightOpen, but isOpen, inside triggerOpening. You have to use the variable which you have in state. SideNav needs boolean variable assignet to triggerOpening. Regards
