    I’m setting up a Felgo App that has both TabControl and a Side Drawer Navigation for all platforms (each with a different mix of navigation items).

    To open the Side Drawer, I’m using IconButtonBarItem on the first page of each major section, but the clickable area seems to not include the icon itself and consists of an invisible sliver of the navigation bar just to the right of the icon. This is true for all platform themes. Below is a simplified reconstruction of my app.


    import Felgo 3.0
    import QtQuick 2.0
    App {    
        id: app
        onInitTheme: { // Custom theme settings }
        MainPage { }



    import Felgo 3.0
    import QtQuick 2.0
    import "pages"
    Page {
        id: mainPage
        SideNav { id: sideNav }
        TabControl {
            tabPosition: Qt.BottomEdge
            showIcon: true
            NavigationItem {
                icon: IconType.briefcase
                AccountsPage { }
            NavigationItem {
                icon: IconType.arrowdown
                ReceivePage { }
            NavigationItem {
                icon: IconType.arrowup
                SendPage { }
            NavigationItem {
                icon: IconType.thlist
                ActivityPage { }



    import Felgo 3.0
    import QtQuick 2.0
    NavigationStack {
        id: stack
        Page {
            title: qsTr("Accounts")
            leftBarItem: IconButtonBarItem {  // <-- ICON NOT CLICKABLE
                icon: IconType.bars
            // Page contents



    import Felgo 3.0
    import QtQuick 2.0
    AppDrawer {
        id: sideNav
        z: 1
        // SideNav content





    I figured out the issue. The width of the AppDrawer.slideInDist property was obscuring the left navigation button. When I adjusted the width down to dp(16), it was no longer in the way.

    Hi Jonathan,

    your solution is correct. When dealing with multiple items that receive touch input by e.g. using a MouseArea, overlapping touch areas can prevents touch input from going through to underlying components.

    For the drawer, the slideInDist property sets the size of the touch-area for the drawer slide-in gesture.
