Nested controller is not working


I want to call controller inside same controller like nested controller, if condition is not satisfied .

  .state('verifyData', {
    cache: false,
    url: '/verifyData',
    controller: 'verifyDataController'

.controller('verifyDataController', ['ConnectivityMonitor','$scope', '$state', '$http', '$ionicPopup', '$ionicLoading', '$q', '$rootScope', function (ConnectivityMonitor, $scope, $state, $http, $ionicPopup, $ionicLoading, $q, $rootScope) {

document.addEventListener("deviceready", function() {
   if(Connectivity._isOnline()) {
       // do something(); this is working..

   if(ConnectivityMonitor._isOffline()) {
	      title: "Error Status",
	      template: "checking whether internet is still working or no..",
              onTap: function () {
                  alert("Inside offline status : " + ConnectivityMonitor._isOffline());
                  // i need to restart or reload the same controller... but it fails... it showing alert always
                  $state.go('/verifyData', {}, {reload: true});

.service('ConnectivityMonitor', function($rootScope, $cordovaNetwork){
  this._isOnline = function () {
    return $cordovaNetwork.isOnline();

  this._isOffline = function () {
    return $cordovaNetwork.isOffline();

  this._networkType = function () {
    return $cordovaNetwork.getNetwork();

Any help would be appreciated…

can you provide a codepen

How codepen will work with deviceready ?

Sorry @priteshpmehta I can’t get you

@reddy_dhitendra my code will not work on browser because online and offline event will only works with device… so how codepen will work with deviceready event ?

In my app i am checking whether the device has network or not… it can be wifi, 4g, etc… if there is no internet available then i am giving alert with $ionicpopup to reconnect to internet… i want that, once the user tap ionicpopup the same state should load again… to follow the same process till device comes with proper network…

I hope you get me…

Thank you.

try to use $route.reload() it will re-instantiates the controller.
so your controller will executed again.
If internet is available don’t call $route.reload()

I have tried this $route.reload() but no luck… and in my case i need to force the app to re-instantiates the controller…whether internet is available or not… because on the start of the controller i am checking it…

any other solution ?

Don’t know this works or not, Just give a try
if there is no internet use one flag variable like isInternetAvailable make it false and call this._isOnline function from your controller if it returns false display alert again

module.controller(‘MyCtrl’, function($rootScope, $cordovaNetwork) {

document.addEventListener(“deviceready”, function () {

var type = $cordovaNetwork.getNetwork()

var isOnline = $cordovaNetwork.isOnline()

var isOffline = $cordovaNetwork.isOffline()

// listen for Online event
$rootScope.$on('$cordovaNetwork:online', function(event, networkState){
  var onlineState = networkState;

// listen for Offline event
$rootScope.$on('$cordovaNetwork:offline', function(event, networkState){
  var offlineState = networkState;

}, false);
