How can I concatinate a ng-model value with a value from a ng-repeat


I want to loop through an array of objects that I receive from a REST service and create a dynamic form using the ng-repeat directive.

This is my form with a rating directive (taken for the UI Bootstrap library)

<form name="categoryRatingFrom" data-ng-submit="updateCategories(catRatings) > <div data-ng-repeat="cats in categories" class="form-group clearfix"> <label class="control-label">{{ cats.name }}</label> <div class="no-outline" data-rating data-ng-model=" // Here I want to concatenate {{ cats.id }} with the ng-model name catRatings // " data-max="6" data-rating-states="ratingOptions.ratingStates" data-on-hover="atmosphereRating.onHover(value)" data-on-leave="atmosphereRating.onLeave()"></div> </div> <form>

I want to set the data-ng-model value using the object name that I pass when submitting and the ID of the current object tin my loop/array, however I don't seem to be able to do this. Should I do the concatenation in the controller on receiving the object array using a loop and then set the data-ng-model using a value from the ng-repeat nothing is passed to the controller when submitting the form (see my code below):

// loop through the object adding a ng-model name that we match in our form... for (var i = 0, l = $scope.categories.length; i < l; i++) { $scope.categories[i]['modelId'] = 'catRatings.' + $scope.categories[i].id; }

I add the following to my HTML data-ng-model="cats.modelId" but nothing is passed to the controller when submitting - can any one help me with a solution or give me an answer to what I am doing wrong?


ng-model takes a variable, not a string value. I'm not sure what exactly you're trying to do but I would think it would be something like:


However, I am not familiar with that directive so I'm not sure if it accepts a ng-model attribute.


I have created <a href="http://plnkr.co/edit/myBRzFOSmpxoC2z4jVMr" rel="nofollow">an example</a> that will be referenced throughout the post. The following variables are declared within the scope as follows.

$scope.data = [ { 'id' : 0, 'name' : 'Tim' }, { 'id' : 1, 'name' : 'John' } ]; $scope.ratings = [ '5 stars', '2 stars' ];

When you are setting your model to 'catRatings' + {{ cats.id }} that means somewhere you are declaring a $scope.catRatings1, $scope.catRatings2, etc. Instead you should bind directly the the category object as follows.

<label ng-repeat="person in data"> <input type="text" ng-model="person.name"> ... </label>

or bind to an array with a corresponding index

<label ng-repeat="person in data"> ... <input type="text" ng-model="ratings[$index]"> </label>

or bind to an array using the id...

<label ng-repeat="person in data"> ... <input type="text" ng-model="ratings[person.id]"> </label>
