How to usemultiple Angular UI Bootstrap Datepicker in single form?

I have a form where there is a need for me to have 2 or more date fields for different things. I tried the Angular UI Bootstrap which works fine when I have only 1 date field in the form. But it stops working if I have multiple date fields and I dont know the easier method to get this to work.

This is my HTML sample:

<label>First Date</label>
<div class="input-group">
<input type="text" class="form-control" datepicker-popup="{{format}}" name="dt" ng-model="formData.dt" is-open="opened" datepicker-options="dateOptions" ng-required="true" close-text="Close" />
<span class="input-group-btn">
<button class="btn btn-default" ng-click="open($event)"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-calendar"></i></button>
</span>
</div>

<label>Second Date</label>
<div class="input-group">
<input type="text" class="form-control" datepicker-popup="{{format}}" name="dtSecond" ng-model="formData.dtSecond" is-open="opened" datepicker-options="dateOptions" ng-required="true" close-text="Close" />
<span class="input-group-btn">
<button class="btn btn-default" ng-click="open($event)"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-calendar"></i></button>
</span>
</div>


My JS is:

myApp.controller('DatePickrCntrl', function ($scope) {

$scope.today = function() {
$scope.formData.dt = new Date();
};
$scope.today();

$scope.showWeeks = true;
$scope.toggleWeeks = function () {
$scope.showWeeks = ! $scope.showWeeks;
};

$scope.clear = function () {
$scope.dt = null;
};

// Disable weekend selection
$scope.disabled = function(date, mode) {
return ( mode === 'day' && ( date.getDay() === 0 || date.getDay() === 6 ) );
};

$scope.toggleMin = function() {
$scope.minDate = ( $scope.minDate ) ? null : new Date();
};
$scope.toggleMin();

$scope.open = function($event) {
$event.preventDefault();
$event.stopPropagation();

$scope.opened = true;
};

$scope.dateOptions = {
'year-format': "'yy'",
'starting-day': 1
};

$scope.formats = ['dd-MMMM-yyyy', 'yyyy/MM/dd', 'shortDate'];
$scope.format = $scope.formats[0];

});


I implemented based on the sample here. The problem I have here is:

1) When one of the date field is clicked, the pop-up datepicker is messed up and seems to show 2 datepicker in 1.

2) When I remove
is-open="opened"
attribute, the pop-up window seems to work fine. But without
is-open="opened"
, the
ng-click="open($event)
for the button doesnt work.

3) Since each of the date fields have different ng-models, I am unable to set default dates for any date fields except for the first one with
ng-model="formData.dt"


The only long way to resolve this that I can think of is to separate the controller for each date field.

I would like to know how others implement multiple date fields in 1 form itself when using Angular UI Bootstrap.

I have 30 in one form one controller no problem. use the same concept if you need it on ng-repeat.

 <label>First Date</label>  
    <div class="input-group">
     <input type="text" class="form-control" datepicker-popup="{{format}}" 
            name="dt" ng-model="formData.dt" is-open="datepickers.dt" 
            datepicker-options="dateOptions" ng-required="true" 
            close-text="Close" />
      <span class="input-group-btn">
        <button class="btn btn-default" ng-click="open($event,'dt')">
            <i class="glyphicon glyphicon-calendar"></i></button>
      </span>
    </div>      

 <label>Second Date</label>  
    <div class="input-group">
     <input type="text" class="form-control" datepicker-popup="{{format}}" 
            name="dtSecond" ng-model="formData.dtSecond" 
            is-open="datepickers.dtSecond" datepicker-options="dateOptions" 
            ng-required="true" close-text="Close" />
      <span class="input-group-btn">
        <button class="btn btn-default" ng-click="open($event,'dtSecond')">
            <i class="glyphicon glyphicon-calendar"></i></button>
      </span>
    </div>     

myApp.controller('DatePickrCntrl', function ($scope) {
      $scope.datepickers = {
        dt: false,
        dtSecond: false
      }
      $scope.today = function() {
        $scope.formData.dt = new Date();

        // ***** Q1  *****
        $scope.formData.dtSecond = new Date();
      };
      $scope.today();

      $scope.showWeeks = true;
      $scope.toggleWeeks = function () {
        $scope.showWeeks = ! $scope.showWeeks;
      };

      $scope.clear = function () {
        $scope.dt = null;
      };

      // Disable weekend selection
      $scope.disabled = function(date, mode) {
        return ( mode === 'day' && ( date.getDay() === 0 || date.getDay() === 6 ) );
      };

      $scope.toggleMin = function() {
        $scope.minDate = ( $scope.minDate ) ? null : new Date();
      };
      $scope.toggleMin();

      $scope.open = function($event, which) {
        $event.preventDefault();
        $event.stopPropagation();

        $scope.datepickers[which]= true;
      };

      $scope.dateOptions = {
        'year-format': "'yy'",
        'starting-day': 1
      };

      $scope.formats = ['dd-MMMM-yyyy', 'yyyy/MM/dd', 'shortDate'];
      $scope.format = $scope.formats[0];

});


 // ***** Q2 ***** somemodel can be just an array [1,2,3,4,5]
 <div ng-repeat="o in somemodel">
 <label>Date Label</label>  
    <div class="input-group">
     <input type="text" class="form-control" datepicker-popup="{{format}}"
            name="dt{{o}}" ng-model="datepickers.data[o]" 
            is-open="datepickers.isopen[o]" datepicker-options="datepickers.option" 
            ng-required="true" close-text="Close" />
      <span class="input-group-btn">
        <button class="btn btn-default" ng-click="open($event,o)">
            <i class="glyphicon glyphicon-calendar"></i></button>
      </span>
    </div>
  </div>


myApp.controller('DatePickrCntrl', function ($scope) {

      $scope.datepickers = {
        data: {},
        options: {
            'year-format': "'yy'",
            'starting-day': 1
        },
        isopen: {}
      }
      $http.get("get/data/for/some/model", function(result) {
         $scope.somemodel = result;
         for (var i = 0; i < result.length; i++) {
           $scope.datepickers.isopen[result] = false;
           $scope.datepickers.data[result] = new Date(); //set default date.
         }
      });

  // fill in rest of the function
});
