No back button in navbar


According to the documentation back button should be added by default to the navbar but it’s not happening in my case. I checked app.module.ts and there is no config that overrides the default settings.
The project is generated by using the tabs template.
Are there some changes made that changed this behavior?

yeah, but without navigating you will never see a back button…

you have simple some tabs and thats it.
Switching tabs has no effect on the backbutton.

Ech tab has its own navigation stack with 1 Page --> the rootPages.


Oh, yeah, overlooked the fact that those tabs pages are rootPages. Thanks for clarification.
