iOS Question

pagemenu-navigation Right bar button item(cannot hide according to tabs)

I am using pagemenu view in my ios app by follwing this

In a menuviewcontroller I am having a navigation bar in which at left side I have slidemenu button and right side I have bar button item(called select photo which I added in storybord)

Below that navigation bar I am adding pagemenu view 4 tab( contains patient, EMR, chat, prescription)

so according to tapping I want to hide/show that bar button item(that means only for EMR tab I want to show the bar button item(select photo) otherwise I want to hide( for remining 3 tabs),but I cannot achieve it
this is my code in that menuviewcontroller viewdidload methodenter image description here

- (void)viewDidLoad {
[super viewDidLoad];

SWRevealViewController *revealViewController = self.revealViewController;
if ( revealViewController )
[self->_slideOutMenu setTarget: self.revealViewController];
[self->_slideOutMenu setAction: @selector( revealToggle: )];
[self.view addGestureRecognizer:self.revealViewController.panGestureRecognizer];


self.navigationController.navigationBar.shadowImage = [[UIImage alloc] init];
[self.navigationController.navigationBar setBackgroundImage:[[UIImage alloc] init] forBarMetrics:UIBarMetricsDefault];
self.navigationController.navigationBar.barStyle = UIBarStyleBlack;
self.navigationController.navigationBar.tintColor = [UIColor whiteColor];
self.navigationController.navigationBar.titleTextAttributes = @{NSForegroundColorAttributeName: [UIColor whiteColor]};

UIStoryboard* sb = [UIStoryboard storyboardWithName:@"Main"
Patient* controller1 = [sb instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier:@"patient"];

controller1.title = @"PATIENT";

EMR* controller2 = [sb instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier:@"emr"];

controller2.title = @"EMR";
Chat* controller3 = [sb instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier:@"chatViewcontroller"];

controller3.title = @"CHAT";

Prescription* controller4 = [sb instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier:@"prescription"];

controller4.title = @"PRESCRIPTION";

NSArray *controllerArray = @[controller1, controller2, controller3, controller4];
NSDictionary *parameters = @{
CAPSPageMenuOptionScrollMenuBackgroundColor: [UIColor colorWithRed:60.0/255.0 green:169.0/255.0 blue:128.0/255.0 alpha:1.0],
CAPSPageMenuOptionViewBackgroundColor: [UIColor colorWithRed:255.0/255.0 green:255.0/255.0 blue:255.0/255.0 alpha:1.0],
CAPSPageMenuOptionSelectionIndicatorColor: [UIColor whiteColor],
CAPSPageMenuOptionBottomMenuHairlineColor: [UIColor colorWithRed:70.0/255.0 green:70.0/255.0 blue:70.0/255.0 alpha:1.0],
CAPSPageMenuOptionMenuItemFont: [UIFont fontWithName:@"HelveticaNeue" size:12.0],
CAPSPageMenuOptionMenuHeight: @(70.0),
CAPSPageMenuOptionMenuItemWidth: @(120.0),
CAPSPageMenuOptionCenterMenuItems: @(YES)

_pagingMenuView = [[CAPSPageMenu alloc] initWithViewControllers:controllerArray frame:CGRectMake(0.0, 42.0, self.view.frame.size.width, self.view.frame.size.height-38) options:parameters];
if (_currentIndex >= 0 && _currentIndex <= 2){

[_pagingMenuView moveToPage:_currentIndex];

[self.view addSubview:_pagingMenuView.view];


see the screen shot i attached

so i want to hide that right navigation bar button for all tabs except emr tab
the viewdidload and viewwill appear methods in menuviewcontroller is called only once , those are not calling every time tapping the menus(patient, EMR, chat, prescription) so i donnot know how to acheive it
please any one help me on this

thanks in advance

This works for me as accepted answer in this question

Adding this line


after the object (pagingMenuViewController) intiated like below

pagingMenuViewController = [[CAPSPageMenu alloc] initWithViewControllers:controllerArray frame:CGRectMake(0.0, 42.0, self.view.frame.size.width, self.view.frame.size.height-38) options:parameters];
self.navigationItem.rightBarButtonItem.tintColor=[UIColor clearColor];


and i added this delegate
ansd delegate methods

- (void)didMoveToPage:(UIViewController *)controller index:(NSInteger)index {
if(index ==1){
[self show];
[self hide];
- (void)willMoveToPage:(UIViewController *)controller index:(NSInteger)index{
if(index ==1){
[self show];
[self hide];


In viewDidLoad method add

_pagingMenuView.delegate = self

then implement the delegate method

- (void)didMoveToPage:(UIViewController *)controller index:(NSInteger)index {
    if(index ==1){
        self.navigationItem.rightBarButtonItem = //your barButton to select photo
        self.navigationItem.leftBarButtonItem = nil;
        self.navigationItem.rightBarButtonItem = nil;
        self.navigationItem.leftBarButtonItem = //your barButton to reveal the slide menu
