Adding a button to the navigation

I am trying to add a button to my navigation on certain pages. However, with the seed project I only get to set the title on each page.

<ion-view title="'Items'">

How do I add a button to the navigation?

You can specify <ion-view title="'Items'" left-buttons="leftButtons" right-buttons="rightButtons"> </ion-view> Where leftButtons and rightButtons are scope variables where you can assign buttons and what happens when you tap them as a list of objects in your controller.


Maybe a change has occurred since this answer was given, but if you want to conditionally add buttons to the navbar based on a given page all you need to do is add the ion-nav-buttons directive inside you view but above you content.

    <ion-view view-title="Buddy List">
      <ion-nav-buttons side="right" ng-show="false">
        <button class="button button-icon button-clear ion-compose">

        <h1>Buddy List</h1>
