The Slide transition is used by the Drawer component. It uses react-transition-group internally.


Props of the Transition component are also available.


A single child content element.


Add a custom transition end trigger. Called with the transitioning DOM node and a done callback. Allows for more fine grained transition end logic. Note: Timeouts are still used as a fallback if provided.


Perform the enter transition when it first mounts if in is also true. Set this to false to disable this behavior.

containerHTML element
| func

An HTML element, or a function that returns one. It's used to set the container the Slide is transitioning from.

| 'right'
| 'up'

Direction the child node will enter from.

| string
{ enter: theme.transitions.easing.easeOut, exit:, }

The transition timing function. You may specify a single easing or a object containing enter and exit values.


If true, the component will transition in.

| { appear?: number, enter?: number, exit?: number }
{ enter: theme.transitions.duration.enteringScreen, exit: theme.transitions.duration.leavingScreen, }

The duration for the transition, in milliseconds. You may specify a single timeout for all transitions, or individually with an object.

The ref is forwarded to the root element.


While not explicitly documented above, the props of the Transition component from react-transition-group are also available in Slide. You can take advantage of this to target nested components.
