i am using angular ui modal to create modal in my project.
Everything works fine until I need to refer to variable in parent scope. see plunker code
It seems like modal can't access parent scope. Is there anyway to overcome this?
Angular UI's modals use
$rootScope by default (See the documentation here).
You can pass a
scope parameter with a custom scope when you open the modal – e.g.
scope: $scope if you want to pass the parent scope. The modal controller will create a sub-scope from that scope, so you will only be able to use it for your initial values.
