The AllowMinimizeMode property specifies whether to show the collapse (hamburger) button. The collapse button differs in the views:

  • Hamburger View - the hamburger button that is always visible


  • Classic View - a side button that appears when the mouse points a menu edge


    Use the MinimizeButtonMode property to specify whether to show the button at the left or right menu edge.

If the property is set to Default, the buton visibility depends on the view type - the Hamburger View shows the collapse button, the Classic View does not. Use AllowMinimizeMode property to show or hide the button. Even if users are not allowed to collapse the menu with the button, you can still do it using the State property.
