    Hi Rajeesh,

    Since you're using XML views, the id of the view in run-time will be prefixed with the id of parent control.

    Now consider your master view id is 'master' then you can try like below in your detail controller.


    Check this sample: Plunker

    On select of the button placed in Detail will get you the selection mode of list present in Master.
