Using Master-Detail view for only *part* of application

Forums > Swift

I'm working on an application where I want to be able to quickly reference the data used to drive the application, and then I want to be able to perform tests using that data in a different view.

I've got a Master-Detail setup that's working pretty well. The problem is...getting out of it.

I can't seem to push any views over it. I tried adding a LandingPage view above it, setting that as the initial view controller, and pushing from there—nothing.

I can set up a segue from the LandingPage view controller to the MasterViewController, and it works-ish. The Master-Detail view gets presented modally, and is dismissable with a sweep downward. It's an improvement, but far from ideal, to say the least.

Is there something I'm missing here, or are you just bound hard and fast into Master-Detail view for everything when using that structure?


I'm not sure if this will help, but if you're looking to NOT use Master-Detail, you can change the Navigation style with .navigationViewStyle(StackNavigationViewStyle())
