AngularJS Question

Why can't the $rootScope be accessed in the template of a directive with isolate scope?

With isolate scope the template of the directive does not seem to be able to access the controller ('Ctrl') $rootScope variable which, however, does appear in the controller of the directive. I understand why the controller ('Ctrl') $scope variable isn't visible in the isolate scope.

HTML:

<div ng-app="app">
<div ng-controller="Ctrl">
<my-template></my-template>
</div>

<script type="text/ng-template" id="my-template.html">
<label ng-click="test(blah)">Click</label>
</script>
</div>


JavaScript:

angular.module('app', [])
.controller('Ctrl', function Ctrl1($scope, $rootScope) {
$rootScope.blah = 'Hello';
$scope.yah = 'World'
})
.directive('myTemplate', function() {
return {
restrict: 'E',
templateUrl: 'my-template.html',
scope: {},
controller: ["$scope", "$rootScope", function($scope, $rootScope) {
console.log($rootScope.blah);
console.log($scope.yah);,

$scope.test = function(arg) {
console.log(arg);
}
}]
};
});


JSFiddle

The variable is accessed with no isolate scope - as can be seen by commenting the isolate scope line:

// scope: {},

Answer

You can try this way out using $root.blah

Working Code

html

 <label ng-click="test($root.blah)">Click</label>

javascript

  angular.module('app', [])
    .controller('Ctrl', function Ctrl1($scope,  $rootScope) {
        $rootScope.blah = 'Hello';
        $scope.yah = 'World'
    })
    .directive('myTemplate', function() {
        return {
            restrict: 'E',
            templateUrl: 'my-template.html',
            scope: {},
            controller: ["$scope", "$rootScope", function($scope, $rootScope) {
                console.log($rootScope.blah);
                console.log($scope.yah);

                $scope.test = function(arg) {
                    console.log(arg);
                }
            }]
        };
    });
