In angular we can use $windows.history.back to back to previous view. How do it with ionic? I try $windows.history.back, but it doesn’t work
Sorry, but we haven’t entirely finalized the API for this yet. But what you can do is use the
$ionicViewService to get the “backView”, then call “go” on the view.
var backView = $ionicViewService.getBackView(); backView.go();
We’ll be making this simpler and improving the documention as we move forward. You could also look into use the
ionNavBackButton directive. Hope this helps.
Any ETA on the $ionicViewService documentation?? Seems like a much better option than $location.path(’/app’) …
So $location.path(’/app/home’) is better done by $state.go(‘app.home’)
However, is $ionicViewService able to change the default animation? Instead of a slide left-right, a slide up-down?
Right now, I don’t think there is any documentation. Your best bet is reviewing the code:
