Hide ion-nav-bar for single page?

Hi - pretty new to this framework and Angular, so please bear with me:

In Ionic Seed App, how would I hide the on just one page? I’ve tried playing around with ng-hide to no avail.


What do you want to hide? Or did you accidentally the hole page?

Sorry, my post got truncated somehow: I want to hide the nav bar in just one page. In the Seed App the nav bar is in the index.html file:

<ion-nav-bar type="bar-stable" 
         back-button-type="button-icon button-clear" 

Add hide-nav-bar=“true” to your ion-view for that page.

<ion-view hide-nav-bar="true">

That’s no good - that will hide it for every page because the nav bar is in the index.html file.

As per the Seed app, the pages are called in through the ion-nav-view directive - surely I don’t have to move the nav-bar into each individual template?

The template for each page should have an ion-view tag?? That is the one that you set with hide-nav-bar.

Here is the standard tabs with navigation example hiding the header for the first page of the home tab and the contact tab. http://codepen.io/anon/pen/aKgEo


My apologies, I misread your post. That worked perfectly - thank you!

@Scott Facing similar trouble. I have hidden the nav-bar for Login page, using your trick, but the next page keeps showing back chevron button which I can’t get rid of (and clicking it brings one back to login page). Could you please help? (also, pretty new to this framework)

My code is based out of this which behaves perfectly but mine doesn’t. If my code helps:

<ion-nav-bar animation="nav-title-slide-ios7"
<ion-nav-view animation="slide-left-right"></ion-nav-view>

<script id="tabs.html" type="text/ng-template">
    <ion-tabs tabs-style="tabs-icon-top" tabs-type="tabs-positive">
        <!-- First Tab -->
        <ion-tab title="First" icon="icon ion-paper-airplane" href="#/tab/home">
            <ion-nav-view name="home-tab"></ion-nav-view>
       <!-- other tabs -->

<script id="home.html" type="text/ng-template">
    <ion-view title="'PreQ Order'" left-buttons="leftButtons">
        <ion-content has-header="true" padding="true">
            <p>Example of Ionic tabs. </p>
                <a class="button icon icon-right ion-chevron-right" href="#/tab/facts2">Scientific Facts</a>

Without seeing more of your code it’s very hard to tell. Here is a fork of the pen you reference with the header of the login page hidden.

The only thing I changed was to add hide-nav-bar=“true” to the ion-view tag in sign-in.html and change has-header to “false” in the same template.


Thanks @Scott, now it works.

@Scott, this works, thank you.

Hi, the $ionicNavBarDelegate has a showBar method that might do what you want?

Just put $ionicNavBarDelegate.show(false); in the controller, within the function where you want to toggle the nav bar. Make sure you revert it in other states (I think, maybe test if you need to unhide it).

Hi, I just find this post with the Codepen sample and I have a question.

Basically, the Home view has no nav bar but when you click on the Scientific Facts button, the nav var quickly appear for a moment with the “Home” title.

I was wondering if there was a way to avoid that?

use hide-nav-bar=“true” in ion-view has solved the issue for me

this is working fine hide-nav-bar=“true”

but i am getting new problem. I have added hide-nav-bar=“true” to login page, but the problem is it show blank header for some mili seconds and after the view loaded it hide as expected.

make ion-header transparent for that page using CSS
