I'm using the Angular directive for Kendo's grid component, but instead of using it directly, I'm having a wrapper around it to keep the dependency to a minimum.

The thing is that since I have a wrapper, after the column templates have been compiled they have the wrapper's scope as $parent instead of the outer scope.Inside the column templates I currently have to write: 

<elem attr="$parent.$parent.value"></elem>

It is rather unclear for new developers what is going on there and it is prone to errors, as well, if the hierarchy would change. Instead I would like to write:

<elem attr="value"></elem>

which means that I want to be able to define that the scope that gets created for the columns should inherit from a specific scope instead of the current scope. (Also, the wrapper has an isolated scope, so the properties are not inherited from the outer scope)

Is this possible to achieve?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

 

We are not aware of any means to re-arrange the scope hierarchy in angularjs. Notice however, that the scope prototype chain mechanism should (at least in theory) allow you to access the parent properties here.

Hi,

I see, it sounded in the docs as if you manually compiled the templates and by using transclude you can control the parent scope of the content. My scenario may be quite uncommon, but I had to ask :)

I use an isolated scope for the wrapper, so the scope is not prototypically inherited. That's why I must use $parent.

Thanks for the answer.

Regards,
JH
