Ionic sidemenu

how to make a sidemenu tab accessible only when connected to the internet

When you check navigator.onLine, it will give a boolean value true, if you are connected to the internet. If you are offline, then it will return false. Based on this value you can just show or hide the side menu button.
You can either take variable on the $rootScope or you can check the value in each route, and make the manipulations to show or hide the side menu.

yeah and you need maybe this plugin:

you get two events “online” “offline” to react if the device goes offline during usage and so on.

so you can set a flag --> if offline and avoid opening sidemenu

thanks you…
