For a report I'm describing all the mobile design patterns used in my design and I should use the correct names. However, I can't find the correct title for the 'off-canvas navigation menu', a menu that is mainly hidden, but shown by a click of a button (often a 'hamburger' icon'), such as in the (old) Facebook iPhone app.

P.s. If possible link the library which confirms your answer. (Which might help me seek other titles as well.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Patterns have 'correct titles' now? – ctbeiser Jul 5 '14 at 20:00
  • Well in fact each pattern may or may not have a few aliases, but each, or at least the rather common ones, do have their own recognizable name. – Sander Schaeffer Jul 6 '14 at 0:13

I would call that a Toggle menu, a la Brad Frost's design patters library: http://codepen.io/bradfrost/full/sHvaz
