OK I need to explain a bit further.
This is an app that I’m working on. Ionic/Cordova with firebase behind the scene. I want to manage my wonderful cellar
So I extracted 4 printscreens. First one is a dashboard with shortcuts to selections of bottles matching some criteria. For instance, I clicked on the red bar, representing red wines, this brought me directly the the 2nd screen, showing bottles of red wines in my cellar. But in the dashboard, anything is clickable. This is my point of view of what UX design should be for my app.
The second screen shows a subset of bottles. It also embeds a sidemenu (see button on top-left of the screen). If I click it opens eht menu, see 3rd screenshot. There I can refine filtering a lot, by area, color of wines or age classification (young, old etc.). As you can see, so fair it works, I can open it (and use it).
There comes the issue. Notice that the current active tab, at the bottom of the screen, is still the “home” screen (the one with dashboard).
User may also choose to move directly from there to the “Recherche” tab (search, sorry my App is in French).
So here’s what I can see when activating this tab, the last screenshot:
As you can see the side menu button is there. But when I click on it the menu no longer opens.
I noticed that, when closing properly the menu in the third screenshot, it opens in the 4th screenshot.
My guess is that there’s a technical issue behind this.
@rapropos I hear what you say but this ability to navigate from charts or buttons like “favorites” or “most used requests” is a key feature of my app, it makes a lot of sense for the end-user, to me user experience is more important that technical considerations as long as the app does not break of course.
I sort of think the technical issue here can be solved. I just need to understand how
@Sidharth_1999 for the code, sorry it’s way too complex to be simply displayed here. I will try and reproduce the issue in a plunker, I hope I can this Sunday.
Thanks for your interest
