angularjs: using a directive inside the ui-bootstrap modal

I can't figure out how to call a directive from within a modal created with the $dialog service. That directive should also be able to see the buttons on the modal and override their ng-click action.

Here's my modal template:

<div class="modal-header"> <h1>Rechercher</h1> </div> <div class="modal-body"> <search-person></search-person> </div> <div class="modal-footer"> <button ng-click="close(result)" class="btn btn-primary">Close</button> </div>

the searchPerson directive template:


the searchPerson directive itself:

angular.module('person.directives').directive("searchPerson", ['PersonService', function (PersonService) { return { restrict: "E", templateUrl: "person/views/searchPerson.html", scope: {}, controller: 'searchPersonCtrl' } }]);

the searchPerson controller:

angular.module('person.controllers').controller('searchPersonCtrl', ['$scope', function ($scope) { $scope.test = 2; }]);

and finally the modal controller:

angular.module('person.controllers').controller('DialogController', ['$scope', 'dialog', function($scope, dialog) { $scope.test = 2; $scope.close = function (result) { alert('modal scope'); dialog.close($scope.test); }; }]);

So how do I make the searchPerson controller and the modal controller communicate with each other ?


I think I went a step too far. Instead of having a template and a controller for Modal, and a directive inside, the modal is now the template for the directive. Here's the code:

<div class="modal-header"> <h1>Rechercher</h1> </div> <div class="modal-body"> <!-- this used to be the searchPerson directive but now the Modal and the directive are just the same directive --> <span>{{test}}</span> </div> <div class="modal-footer"> <button ng-click="close(result)" class="btn btn-primary">Close</button> </div>
