The MenuToggle component can be used to toggle a menu open or closed.

By default, it's only visible when the selected menu is active. A menu is active when it can be opened/closed. If the menu is disabled or it's being presented as a split-pane, the menu is marked as non-active and ion-menu-toggle hides itself.

In case it's desired to keep ion-menu-toggle always visible, the autoHide property can be set to false.



DescriptionAutomatically hides the content when the corresponding menu is not active.

By default, it's true. Change it to false in order to
keep ion-menu-toggle always visible regardless the state of the menu.
DescriptionOptional property that maps to a Menu's menuId prop.
Can also be start or end for the menu side.
This is used to find the correct menu to toggle.

If this property is not used, ion-menu-toggle will toggle the
first menu that is active.
