Angularjs list and detail view

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

this is my basic scenario. For a list of items (summary view) i want to show details view of item that got clicked on the same page.

I took this jsfiddle example and transformed it into this jsfiddle. If you look at the behavior it does work for first time but it is not consistent.

Maybe someone can help me with this, or suggest a better approach. I would like to have a different controller for managing the list and a different controller to handle the detail view.

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

One way of transforming the example (provided that you want to use ngSwitch) would be:

<ul ng-controller="ListController">
    <li ng-repeat="item in items" ng-controller="ItemController">
        <div ng-click="open(item)">{{item.content}}</div>        
    <ng-switch on="anyItemOpen()">
     <div ng-switch-when="true">
         <div ng-controller="ItemController">
             {{}}: overlay: tweet, share, pin
         <a ng-click="close()">close</a>         

And here is the working jsFiddle:

Your jsFiddle didn’t work since you were trying to reference item created in the ngRepeat scope (and thus not available outside of the ngRepeat).

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
