AngularJS Question

trigger click event from angularjs directive

How can i trigger a click event for li elements specifying their index from the angularjs directive?
I have tried using $first for triggering click for the first element, but its not working.

Thanks for any help.

Answer

Here is perhaps a different way for you to achieve this. Pass into the directive both the index and the item and let the directive setup the html in a template:

Demo: http://plnkr.co/edit/ybcNosdPA76J1IqXjcGG?p=preview

html:

<ul id="thumbnails">
    <li class="thumbnail" ng-repeat="item in items" options='#my-container' itemdata='item' index="$index">

    </li>
  </ul>

js directive:

app.directive('thumbnail', [function() {
  return {
    restrict: 'CA',
    replace: false,
    transclude: false,
    scope: {
        index: '=index',
        item: '=itemdata'
    },
    template: '<a href="#"><img src="{{item.src}}" alt="{{item.alt}}" /></a>',
    link: function(scope, elem, attrs) {
        if (parseInt(scope.index) == 0) {
            angular.element(attrs.options).css({'background-image':'url('+ scope.item.src +')'});
        }

        elem.bind('click', function() {
            var src = elem.find('img').attr('src');

            // call your SmoothZoom here
            angular.element(attrs.options).css({'background-image':'url('+ scope.item.src +')'});
        });
    }
}
}]);

You probably would be better off adding a ng-click to the image as pointed out in another answer.
