Pushing a view onto navbar programmatically


I my app I have a top navbar and a few places where I slide to another view using the typical a ui-sref="" format. There are a few places, though, where this won’t work and I’ll need to slide in a view manually. I can’t find a method to do this - is there a function call that allows me to slide in a view onto the navbar, giving me the transition, back button, etc?


I was pointed to $state.go() which mostly does the trick. It slides in the new view, gives me the back button, but I also lose the buttons I already had in the navbar…
