Drop down menu Issue with ion-navigation

Hi, I am facing a strange problem with ion-nav-view

I have attempted to have a drop down menu in my app. For this i have created my own custom menu directive.
It was working fine until I updated my ionic to latest version. I have attached the drop-down in the ion-nav-buttons like

<ion-nav-buttons side="right">
    <button-menu class="whiteText" icon-cls="icon ion-plus-round">
            <menu-item ng-click="dummyShow(1)">
                <i class="icon ion-bluetooth"></i> Menu 1
            <menu-item ng-click="dummyShow(2)">
                <i class="icon ion-bluetooth"></i> Menu 2

Now my problem is ng-click on menu-item is working only when there is hide-back-button="true" for this ion-view. I am unable to track the problem. Is there a solution for this?

Here is a plunker with the code : drop-down

PS: This problem is on android 4.3 or less. Working fine on latest android.

Hmm, have you tried using our popover component instead?

I want to create sub-menu in side menu. It mean that when I click on a “Childs” button in parent menu-item, it will show all child menu items, and hide them when click again. But when I click on this parent item(not the “Childs” button), it will go to url of this parent menu-item. This button is something like the “ion-more” button in your above example. Can you show me the best way to do this.
