AngularJS Question

Responsive dropdown navbar with angular-ui bootstrap (done in the correct angular kind of way)

I've created a JSFiddle with a dropdown navbar using angular-ui-boostrap's module "ui.bootstrap.dropdownToggle": http://jsfiddle.net/mhu23/2pmz5/

<div class="navbar navbar-fixed-top">
<div class="navbar-inner">
<div class="container"> <a class="brand" href="#">
My Responsive NavBar
</a>

<ul class="nav">
<li class="divider-vertical"></li>
<li class="dropdown"> <a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle">
Menu 1 <b class="caret"></b>
</a>

<ul class="dropdown-menu">
<li><a href="#/list">Entry 1</a>
</li>
<li><a href="#/list">Entry 2</a>
</li>
</ul>
</li>
....
</ul>
</div>
</div>
</div>


As far as I understand this is the proper, angular kind of way to implement such a dropdown menu. The "wrong" way, in terms of angularjs, would be to include bootstrap.js and to use "data-toggle="dropdown"... Am I right here?

Now I'd like to add responsive behaviour to my navbar as done in the following Fiddle:
http://jsfiddle.net/ghtC9/6/

BUT, there's something I don't like about the above solution. The guy included bootstrap.js!

So what would be the correct angular kind of way to add responsive behaviour to my existing navbar?

I obviously need to use bootstraps responsive navbar classes such as "nav-collapse collapse navbar-responsive-collapse". But I don't know how...

I'd really appreciate your help!

Thank you in advance!

Answer

You can do it using the "collapse" directive: http://jsfiddle.net/iscrow/Es4L3/ (check the two "Note" in the HTML).

        <!-- Note: set the initial collapsed state and change it when clicking -->
        <a ng-init="navCollapsed = true" ng-click="navCollapsed = !navCollapsed" class="btn btn-navbar">
           <span class="icon-bar"></span>
           <span class="icon-bar"></span>
           <span class="icon-bar"></span>
        </a>
        <a class="brand" href="#">Title</a>
           <!-- Note: use "collapse" here. The original "data-" settings are not needed anymore. -->
           <div collapse="navCollapsed" class="nav-collapse collapse navbar-responsive-collapse">
              <ul class="nav">

That is, you need to store the collapsed state in a variable, and changing the collapsed also by (simply) changing the value of that variable.


Release 0.14 added a uib- prefix to components:

Change: collapse to uib-collapse.
