How to use image as button in ionic


My objective is to use image as a button in ionic. I first used a-tag to link between page. But when I clicked on the image. There is no button activated effect. So I switch to button-tag

I have tried using

<button class="button button-clear" style="background-image:url('img/myImage.jpg'); background-size:cover"></button>

But the button height stay the same. So it won’t show full size image.
I have tried




But nothing seems to work.

I also tried adding my own css

.Test-up {
  border :none;
  padding : 0px;

.Test-down {
  opacity: 0.5;
  padding: 0px;

and added below code into my index.html

<button ng-mousedown="class='Test-down'" ng-mouseup="class='Test-up'" class="{{class}}" href="#">

and below code to my controller

$scope.class = "Test-up";

as I tried from
But it doesn’t work with ios or android. So what should I do?


try this.

 <img src="img/myImage.jpg" style="width : 100% ; height : 100%" ng-click="nextpage()" >

this shoud to the trick you can have the height and width as your wish.

Make sure you give the correct path to src field.
