AngularJS Question

Angular UI Bootstrap date-picker Combined With UI.Mask

I am using the angular UI bootstrap popup date-picker to build a directive that will easily allow me to add the date-picker where need.

When I combine this with the uiMask Directive, the values in the input get scrambled when I pick a date.

Here is my html:

<p class="input-group">
<input type="text" class="form-control"
ui-mask="99/99/9999"
ng-model="ngModel"
ng-model="order.date"
datepicker-popup="MM/dd/yyyy"
is-open="opened"
datepicker-options="dateOptions"
date-disabled="disabled(date, mode)"
ng-required="true"
close-text="Close" />
<span class="input-group-btn">
<button type="button" class="btn btn-default" ng-click="open($event)">
<i class="glyphicon glyphicon-calendar"></i>
</button>
</span>
</p>


And my JS:

/**
* DATE PICKER
*/
$scope.today = function () {
$scope.dt = new Date();
};
$scope.today();

$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 = {
formatYear: 'yy',
startingDay: 1
};

$scope.initDate = new Date('2016-15-20');
$scope.formats = ['dd-MMMM-yyyy', 'yyyy/MM/dd', 'dd.MM.yyyy', 'shortDate'];
$scope.format = $scope.formats[0];


I would like to be able to use the ui-mask functionality to make typing dates easier by not having to type the
/
s. Is it possible to be able to use these together?

Answer

The following snippet worked for me:

.config(function ($provide) {

  $provide.decorator('datepickerPopupDirective', function ($delegate) {
    var directive = $delegate[0];
    var link = directive.link;

    directive.compile = function () {
      return function (scope, element, attrs) {
        link.apply(this, arguments);
        element.mask("99/99/9999");
      };
    };

    return $delegate;
  });

});

It simply decorates the datepicker directive with a mask provided by jquery.maskedinput.js. Have fun!
