Tab Bar embeded in Nav Bar VC


I’m trying to get a Tab Bar VC that has transitions to 4 specific VC’s (SubClasses of VC) and that all the specific VC’s have a navigation bar with right and left buttons. However I see that is not possible to embed a Tab Bar VC in a Navigation Controller.

Is there a known workaround?

What I would like to do is to be able to select from a Tab Bar VC any of the “tabs” and at the same time have two buttons on each of the instances of the “tabs” so I can press the same buttons on all of the “child” VCs…

try making a tab bar controller first, then have the navigation controller on the VC that is connected to the tab bar and see if that works
