OK ive given up on trying to use: Toolbar.setOnTopSideMenu(false);
My conclusion is that it has bugs, one of which being the menu will take over the screen on second use (making it useless). Things work OK without it (after days of hair tearing, and im already going bald :) )... ironically I rechecked the specification document and they do not want the form behind to scroll anyway... I really think the sidemenu is very confusing, but its working for now... thanks for all the help.. now back to my project!!!
