Front End Showcase - Hide side panel and keep annotation toolbox draggable


#1

Using the latest sample front end here:

https://github.com/groupdocs-annotation/GroupDocs.Annotation-for-.NET/tree/master/Showcases/GroupDocs-Annotation-Front-End

And using these settings:
@(Html.Annotation()
.ElementId(“annotation-widget”)
.FilePath(“Quick_Start_Guide_To_Using_GroupDocs.pdf”)
.ShowZoom(true)
.ShowPaging(true)
.ShowThumbnails(true)
.OpenThumbnails(false)
.DisconnectUncommented(true)
.PreloadPageCount(3)
.EnableRightClickMenu(true)
.ShowFileExplorer(true)
.Tools(AnnotationTools.All)
.ShowHeader(true)
.EnableSidePanel(false)
.ClickableAnnotations(true)
.AccessRights(AnnotationReviewerRights.All))


The result is that the “Side Panel” is still visible even though it should be hidden. That appears to be due to AnnotationWidget.js around line 281 not checking for that setting before adding the side panel.

However, if you do add a check to that area of code so that the “Side Panel” is not added, then the Annotation Toolbox is no longer draggable.
