Angular Bootstrap UI rating system - Changing max value using ng-model

I've created a rating system using Angular-UI.
The number of stars displayed come from a variable called max. I'm able to show this variable inside an input using ng-model, but once I modify it, it won't change the number of stars.

You can see what I mean in this Plunker.

Here's the relevant js:

.directive('myRating', function() {
return {
restrict: 'E',
template: '<div> \
<div class="row rating" ng-controller="RatingDemoCtrl"> \
<rating value="rate" max="max" readonly="isReadonly" state-on="\'glyphicon-star rated\'" state-off="\'glyphicon-star\'"></rating> <a class="glyphicon glyphicon-pencil" ng-show="editMode" ng-click="editStars = !editStars"></a>\
<input ng-if="editStars" type="text" class="form-control" ng-model="max" /> \
</div> \
replace: true,

var RatingDemoCtrl = function ($scope) {
$scope.rate = 0;
$scope.max = 10;
$scope.isReadonly = false;

$scope.hoveringOver = function(value) {
$scope.overStar = value;
$scope.percent = 100 * (value / $scope.max);

is working correctly as it will show the value of max every time, but it won't modify it in real time.

Any ideas?


It is totally doable. Copy down the ui-bootstrap code and alter it a little bit. I hacked inside and it seems to be working great. Check out a working PLUNKER. Here are the changes I made, they can be seen on lines 2493-2559.

First I went into the directive and added maxRange as a two-way bound object

scope: {
  value: '=',
  onHover: '&',
  onLeave: '&',
  maxRange: '=max'

Then I went into the controller and changed a few things so I could watch the maxRange value and update the objects based on that.

$scope.$watch('maxRange', function() {
  $scope.range = createRateObjects(new Array(parseInt($scope.maxRange)));

Hacking rocks. Don't be afraid to modify other people's code a little bit if it doesn't fit your needs!
