Errror when setting page as rootPage : Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'ev' of null

I have this issue I dont know if it’s an ionic 2 bug or if I need support

Ionic version: 2.x

Current behavior:
I have a menu in my app, and when I logged out, I want to set LoginPage as root page.
But I have below error :


    \node_modules\ionic-angular\util\dom-controller.js:94 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'ev' of null
        at Content.readDimensions (\node_modules\ionic-angular\components\content\content.js:518)
        at dispatch (\node_modules\ionic-angular\util\dom-controller.js:103)
        at DomController.flush (\node_modules\ionic-angular\util\dom-controller.js:84)

import {UserService} from '../services/user.service';

  templateUrl: 'app.html'
export class App {
    @ViewChild(Nav) nav:Nav;
    rootPage: any=HomePage;

Could you put together a simple demo and push it to github? Kind of hard to know what the issue is without one

@mhartington I face now the same issue as on this topic Ionic 2 - Page freeze after navCtrl.setRoot(LoginPage) :disappointed_relieved:

Hey guys, awesome work, did anyone find a fix for this?

Not sure if this is any help but I get a similar error when unit testing, though my error is at line 112 in ionic-angular/platform/dom-controller.js.

I was following this tutorial:

I’m same error.

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘ev’ of null
at Content._readDimensions (content.js:526)
at content.js:155
at dispatch (dom-controller.js:128)
at DomController._flush (dom-controller.js:102)
at rafCallback (dom-controller.js:95)

Solution in this link

I used below code in app.component to set root and it works.

@ViewChild(Nav) nav: Nav;

this.nav.setRoot('login', {}, { animate: true, direction: 'forward' });;
