Confirmation dialog on ng-click - AngularJS

I am trying to setup a confirmation dialog on an

using a custom angularjs directive:

app.directive('ngConfirmClick', [
return {
priority: 1,
terminal: true,
link: function (scope, element, attr) {
var msg = attr.ngConfirmClick || "Are you sure?";
var clickAction = attr.ngClick;
element.bind('click',function (event) {
if ( window.confirm(msg) ) {

This works great but unfortunately, expressions inside the tag using my directive are not evaluated:

<button ng-click="sayHi()" ng-confirm-click="Would you like to say hi?">Say hi to {{ name }}</button>

(name is not evaluated is this case). It seems to be due to the terminal parameter of my directive. Do you have any ideas of workaround?

If you don't mind not using ng-click, it works OK. You can just rename it to something else and still read the attribute, while avoiding the click handler being triggered twice problem there is at the moment.


I think the problem is terminal instructs other directives not to run. Data-binding with {{ }} is just an alias for the ng-bind directive, which is presumably cancelled by terminal.
