AngularJS Question

Bind class toggle to window scroll event

When a user scrolls their browser window below a certain point, I am toggling the class of the #page div.

What I have done so far works fine:

http://jsfiddle.net/eTTZj/29/

<div ng-app="myApp" scroll id="page">

<header></header>
<section></section>

</div>

app = angular.module('myApp', []);
app.directive("scroll", function ($window) {
return function(scope, element, attrs) {
angular.element($window).bind("scroll", function() {
if (this.pageYOffset >= 100) {
element.addClass('min');
console.log('Scrolled below header.');
} else {
element.removeClass('min');
console.log('Header is in view.');
}
});
};
});


(when they scroll their window below the header, 100px, the class is toggled)

Although, correct me if I'm wrong, I feel that this is not the correct way to be doing this with Angular.

Instead, I presumed that the best method for doing this would be by using ng-class and storing a boolean value in the scope. Something like this:

<div ng-app="myApp" scroll id="page" ng-class="{min: boolChangeClass}">

<header></header>
<section></section>

</div>

app = angular.module('myApp', []);
app.directive("scroll", function ($window) {
return function(scope, element, attrs) {
angular.element($window).bind("scroll", function() {
if (this.pageYOffset >= 100) {
scope.boolChangeClass = true;
console.log('Scrolled below header.');
} else {
scope.boolChangeClass = false;
console.log('Header is in view.');
}
});
};
});


Although this is not dynamic, if I change the value of scope.boolChangeClass in the scroll callback, then the ng-class is not updating.

So my question is: how is best to toggle the class of #page, using AngularJS, when the user scrolls below a certain point?

Thanks to Flek for answering my question in his comment:

<div ng-app="myApp" scroll id="page" ng-class="{min:boolChangeClass}">

    <header></header>
    <section></section>

</div>

app = angular.module('myApp', []);
app.directive("scroll", function ($window) {
    return function(scope, element, attrs) {
        angular.element($window).bind("scroll", function() {
             if (this.pageYOffset >= 100) {
                 scope.boolChangeClass = true;
             } else {
                 scope.boolChangeClass = false;
             }
            scope.$apply();
        });
    };
});
