ng-repeat with click modifying input

<input ng-model = "val">
<a href ng-click="val = 1"> val = 1 </a>
<div class="test" ng-controller="Ctrl">
<tr ng-repeat="thing in data">
<a href ng-click="val = 1">

Is there a way to make an input change based on a click in an ng-repeat?
In this jsfiddle you can the input change with a click outside of an ng-repeat, but in the repeat it doesn't change the input.



The problem is that you are setting the val property in a child scope created by ng-repeat.

The solution is to create a function that assigns this value to the parent scope:

$scope.changeVal = function(val){
    $scope.$parent.val = val;

And call it with ng-click="changeVal(1)"
