In an ionic’s tabs based app, if we handle a button click from a tab button, change some states, ionic’s changing detecting mechanism for the current page will stop working. Only thing we can do is exist and re-enter the view.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. start a new project demo with default tabs template.
    add a button tab in tabs.html as:

<ion-tab tabTitle="" tabIcon=“camera” (ionSelect)=“takePhoto()”>

  1. Inject events into tabs.ts, and add a test method in tabs.ts:
export class TabsPage {
constructor(private events: Events) {}
takePhoto() {"data:changed");
  1. Inject Events into home.ts, and subscribe to above event:
export class HomePage {
datatest: string = "old";
constructor(public navCtrl: NavController, public events: Events) {
events.subscribe("data:changed", this.change.bind(this));
change() {
console.log("data changed!");
this.datatest = "new!";
  1. add a variable binding to anywhere in home.html:
<button ion-button (click)="change()">TEST</button>
  1. click the 'camera‘ tab, watch the home page. no update is happen. while the console print the expected value.
  2. click the ‘test’ button on home page, no update is happen also.
  3. re-enter the home page, repeat 7, update take effect.
