Slide Navigation

This is an attempt to make a Facebook-like navigation panel for Sencha Touch 2. To see a current working demo, visit this page on a mobile device. To see the navigation menu in the example, "flick" the toolbar (at the top) to the right; the opposite action can be used to close the menu.

This is a work in progress and still needs quite a bit of work, but it is usable.

Getting Started

Using the SlideNavigation view in your project is now easier than before. All you need to do is place the 'ux' folder somewhere within your application, then add the following to your app (at the top of 'app.js' is a good place):

Ext.Loader.setPath('Ext.ux', './ux');

Adjust './ux' to wherever you actually placed the 'ux' folder.

Note: If you are using this with other components that also use the 'Ext.ux' namespace, simply place the 'ux/slidenavigation' folder into the same location that you've placed the other 'Ext.ux' components.

Then in whatever component you wish to use the view, add:

requires = [

or simply extend the 'Ext.ux.slidenavigation.View' class.

For a more complete example, see app/view/Main.js.

Building with Sencha Command

In order for the sencha build command to work properly, you need to let it know where to find the component. This can be done easily by opening the following file:


Update the app.classpath variable to point to the ux directory, like so:


Building the Example Application

To build the example you need to put Sencha Touch into a folder named sdk. Then run:

./sdk/commands/sencha app build -e testing

This will produce the example app in the build/testing directory.


So far this has been tested on:

  • iOS 5 (iPhone and iPad)
  • Android 4.0.3
  • Android 3.2 (tablet)
  • Android 2.3.3
