Javascript – How to edit contents in Angular js Smart Table

angularjscontenteditablejavascriptsmart-table

I am quite new to java script, so I must apologise if this seems basic.

How can I edit rows tables in Smart-Table with Angularjs? There doesn't seem to be a tutorial with the new Smart-Table. I would like to create a simple form for users to enter the hours open for a particular place.

I have created buttons which can add and remove rows on the table, but when I add in contenteditable="true" none of the changes are persisted when I update the object. I understand that the contenteditable is a specific html5 parameters independent of smart-table, but I don't understand how else I can update the data or how I could retrieve the updated data.

The data is retrieved from the angularjs controller via the mean.js routes.

<div class="controls">
    <table st-table="place.openHours" class="table table-striped">
        <thead>
        <tr>
            <th>Day</th>
            <th>Opening Time</th>
            <th>Closing Time</th>
        </tr>
        </thead>
        <tbody>
        <tr ng-repeat="row in place.openHours" contenteditable="true" >
            <td>{{row.day}}</td>
            <td>{{row.open}}</td>
            <td>{{row.close}}</td>
            <button type="button" ng-click="removeOpenHour(row)" class="btn btn-sm btn-danger">
                <i class="glyphicon glyphicon-remove-circle">
                </i>
            </button>
        </tr>
        </tbody>
    </table>

    <button type="button" ng-click="addOpenHour(row)" class="btn btn-sm btn-success">
        <i class="glyphicon glyphicon-plus">
        </i> Add new Row
    </button>
</div>

Inside the javascript:

    $scope.removeOpenHour = function removeOpenHour(row) {
        var index = $scope.place.openHours.indexOf(row);
        if (index !== -1) {
            $scope.rowCollection.splice(index, 1);
        }
    }

    $scope.addOpenHour = function addOpenHour() {
        $scope.place.openHours.push(
        {
            day: 'Monday',
            open: 540,
            close: 1080
        });
    };

Best Solution

Thanks I had a look around and used the code from here http://jsfiddle.net/bonamico/cAHz7/ and merged it with my code.

HTML file:

<tr ng-repeat="row in place.openHours">
   <td><div contentEditable="true" ng-model="row.day">{{row.day}}</div></td>
   <td><div contentEditable="true" ng-model="row.open">{{row.open}}</div></td>
   <td><div contentEditable="true" ng-model="row.close">{{row.close}}</div></td>
   <td>
   <button type="button" ng-click="removeOpenHour(row)" class="btn btn-sm btn-danger">
      <i class="glyphicon glyphicon-remove-circle">
      </i>
   </button>
</td>

JS file:

myApp.directive('contenteditable', function() {
return {
    require: 'ngModel',
    link: function(scope, elm, attrs, ctrl) {
        // view -> model
        elm.bind('blur', function() {
            scope.$apply(function() {
                ctrl.$setViewValue(elm.html());
            });
        });

        // model -> view
        ctrl.render = function(value) {
            elm.html(value);
        };

        elm.bind('keydown', function(event) {
            console.log("keydown " + event.which);
            var esc = event.which == 27,
                el = event.target;

            if (esc) {
                console.log("esc");
                ctrl.$setViewValue(elm.html());
                el.blur();
                event.preventDefault();
            }

        });

    }
};
});
