Show segue inexplicably changes to a modal segue when a container view controller is used

I don't know the exact cause of this but I am guessing it has something to do with a container view controller being used. I am actually using several containers, one is for a SWRevealViewController, which houses a generic UIViewController for its rearViewController and a UINavigationController for the frontViewController. The root view controller of this navigation controller is another container view controller, a MainViewController, which contains a UIPageViewController. Page view controller has 3 UITableViewControllers and when I try to navigate from those table view controllers to the relevant view controllers (via a segue), and I want it to be a push transition, it makes a modal transition so what gives?

It is something to do with hierarchy I guess, but it is kinda messed up with all these view controllers right now and I think I broke my brain at some point. I would really appreciate if someone who knows what is wrong can explain.

-------------Problems Reply------------

was stuck with the same problem and tried to solve for almost 2 days, and finally solved that..

View Hierarchy:

Container View

  • First Controller (direct child of container)
  • Second Controller (direct child of container)
    • Third Controller
    • Fourth Controller


  • added Navigation controller to First Controller
  • added Navigation Controller to Second Controller

and when want to display any controller instead of presenting the controller itself present the UINavigationController, this will solve the problem of not happening segue push animation...

sample code, hoping it will help:

import UIKit

class ViewController: UIViewController {

var loginViewNavigation : UINavigationController!
var singupViewNavigation : UINavigationController!

override func viewDidLoad() {

var storyBoard = UIStoryboard(name: "User", bundle: nil)

loginViewNavigation = storyBoard.instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier("LoginViewNavigation") as! UINavigationController
singupViewNavigation = storyBoard.instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier("SignupViewNavigation") as! UINavigationController



Point to observe is the use the UINavigationController of the controller you want to display instead of that ViewController

Thanks for the replies but I got it working without the use of segues and the storyboard, by pushing the view controller in tableView delegate manually, like this:

- (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {

PlaceViewController *vc = [self.storyboard instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier:@"placeViewController"]; = self.places[indexPath.row];

[self.navigationController pushViewController:vc animated:YES];
