Dropdown directives for AngularJS (1.1.5+, 1.2.x). Includes both a select-style dropdown and a menu-style dropdown. The menu-style dropdown attaches to an existing element (button, link, div, etc), whereas the select-style dropdown replaces the element it is attached to. See examples:


Include ngDropdowns in your module dependencies: ```js var app = angular.module('app', 'ngDropdowns'); ``` In your controller, setup the select options and object to hold the selected value: ```js app.controller('AppCtrl', function($scope) {
// By default the 'text' property will be used as the display text in the dropdown entry.
// All options that are not dividers must have a 'text' property.
// You can specify a different property name in place of 'text' via the dropdown-item-label attribute.
// A divider with a 'text' property will also be non-selectable.
// If an options object has an 'href' property set, then that dropdown entry
//   will behave as a link and cannot be selected.
$scope.ddSelectOptions = [
text: 'Option1',
value: 'a value'
text: 'Option2',
value: 'another value',
someprop: 'somevalue'
// Any option with divider set to true will be a divider
// in the menu and cannot be selected.
divider: true
// Any divider option with a 'text' property will
// behave similarly to a divider and cannot be selected.
divider: true,
text: 'divider label'
// Example of an option with the 'href' property
text: 'Option4',
href: '#option4'
$scope.ddSelectSelected = {}; // Must be an object
}); ``` And in your html, specify the dropdown-select and dropdown-model attributes on an element. You can optionally set dropdown-item-label to specify a different label field from the default (which is 'text'): ```html
<h1>Dropdown Select</h1>
<p>You have selected: {{ddSelectSelected}}</p>
<div dropdown-select="ddSelectOptions"
dropdown-item-label="text" >
``` For a menu-style dropdown, use dropdown-menu in place of dropdown-select: ```html
<h1>Dropdown Select</h1>
<p>You have selected: {{ddSelectSelected}}</p>
<a href='' title=''
``` You can specify a function to call upon dropdown value change by specifying the dropdown-onchange attribute. This method will have the selected object passed to it. ```html
dropdown-onchange="someMethod(selected)" >
``` You can set dropdown-disabled to disable the dropdown when the bound value is truthy. ```html
dropdown-disabled="isDropdownDisabled" >

Custom Templates

If you'd like to customize the templates more, you can override the values stored in the following $templateCache keys: ngDropdowns/templates/dropdownSelect.html ngDropdowns/templates/dropdownSelectItem.html ngDropdowns/templates/dropdownMenu.html ngDropdowns/templates/dropdownMenuItem.html To do this, you can put your custom templates in the cache from your method. For example: ```js var app = angular.module('app', 'ngDropdowns'); ($templateCache) { $templateCache.put('ngDropdowns/templates/dropdownSelect.html',
'<div class="wrap-dd-select my-custom-class">',
'<span class="selected my-selected-class">{{dropdownModel[labelField]}}</span>',
'<ul class="custom-dropdown">',
'<li ng-repeat="item in dropdownSelect"',
' class="dropdown-item"',
' dropdown-select-item="item"',
' dropdown-item-label="labelField">',
.join('')); }); ```
