Side Menus sample code does not work in Android emulator


#1

Steps I followed:
ionic start myApp blank to create a blank app. Launched the app in Android emulator. Worked fine.
Copied html, js, css code from http://codepen.io/ionic/pen/tcIGK. Relaunched App in Android emulator. Home page shows up. But Menu clicks are not working. No errors in Chrome console.

How to debug further?


#2

What version of android are you using?


#3

I am using Android emulator. Platform version 4.4.2, API level 19.


#4

Hmm, I just tried this on my android emulator and actual device and everything works fine. Are you using the default android emulator or genymotion emulator?


#5

I am using the default android emulator. Not sure what I am missing. No errors in Chrome console. Actually the home page launches just fine, mouse click on menu button is not working. Any pointers on where to debug this issue?


#6

Well you can do some remote debugging with chrome and the ADB plugin, but it’s most likely the emulator. It’s notoriously slow.


#7

What would you suggest? Use a real device. Will tht be faster to debug issues?


#8

Genymotion for emulators, so much faster! Free for personal use.

Or use device


#9

The side menus works fine with Genymotion. Thanks.


#10

Just getting started with Ionic and ran into this same issue. Everything works as it should on a device and with Genymotion. Is there any fix for the default emulator?


#11

No. I am using just the Genymotion or the real device.
