Configuring Razor Pages as Main Content in the Blazor Sidebar Component

1 Sep 20234 minutes to read

In the Blazor Sidebar component, you can seamlessly integrate additional Razor page content into the main content area. This feature allows you to dynamically display content based on user interactions with the Sidebar component. To implement this functionality effectively, it is necessary to position the Sidebar within the MainLayout page and utilize the @Body directive to render the primary content of the Sidebar within the MainLayout.razor page in your application.
