Parent-child state

dear ionic community,
I had posted a question on Stackoverflow: which is very similar to this question here: Can't get the playlist.title to display in starter template but for which no practical answer was provided,

thanks for your help.

You need to use a factory to pass data between controllers.

Check this codepen

Basically, your child controller has to add a dependency, indicating it’s going to use that Factory, and then call the method to retrieve the data.

Thanks but the Codepen doesn’t really illustrate the desired result as there is no flow between one view to another. It is static

did not need to deal with parent-child state, just a service for data and tracking the current data element

Thanks @aaronksaunders, will look into this
