Show Ionic 4 Modal From Component

I’ve been fighting with this for hours but I have had no luck. I created a button component that should trigger a modal and handle the response in the component.

I just can’t get the modal to display. I don’t know why the modal/popover system was changed. It worked beautifully in Ionic 3. :cry:

I’ve added the ModalPage to the app.module, i’ve added the components the the parent page’s module. Has anyone here managed to show a Modal from a component?
