I can not find a good example of a button, outside of a tab or navigation bar, that will change views. How is this done?

I want the buttons to "link" to a specific view (based on which button tapped) contained within a tabPanel. Basically two ways to get to that view. One from the home/splash view and once you tap on a button it would go the tabPanel view from there on out.

Any help understanding this would be appreciated!
