You don’t need that function at all in your controller, in the seed you use it because there is no a custom header so using the view controller you add a button to the header and then you get that.
But on your view you can put a button at the header (check documentation for header )with a link to the proper route like
<a class="button button-full button-positive" title="Hey" href="#/tab/pets">Hey hey</a>
check your app.js, there are the routes that use your app, the first declaration show the starting point
// the pet tab has its own child nav-view and history
As you can see the tag A HREF says : “#/tab/pets” in the previous code you can see the .state(‘tab’ with url: “/tab”, this is the starting point in the seed app , then there is .state(‘tab.pet-index’ with url: ‘/pets’.
So in order to be able to got to PETS you need to put #/tab/pets , like the first example with the A html tag.
To remove the button tabs
you can create something like:
And point your routes to menuContent , like
Check that the pets-tab is changed by menuContent
