Hidden content on button click not responding ion tab

I ran into this interesting issue today. I have a view combination of ion-tab and sidemenu for the same content pages. In one of them I am using hidden attribute to display a form view when a button is clicked. I noticed that when I navigate to that view from the ion-tab the view does not respond to button clicks. On the other hand when I navigate to that page from the sidemenu everything works as expected.

I read something pertaining to zone issues that may occur if one tries to navigate or push to a new page in the ionViewWillLoad page event but this does not seem to be related because tabs just display pages based on zero-based indices.

Has anyone seen this before?
