compile angular on an element after angular compilation has already happened

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

I’m writing a directive and when clicked it loads a html template from the server. How can I get angular to compile this?

EDIT: I should probably mention the template is used for loading into a modal.

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

You can inject the $compile service and $compile it whenever you want. $compile('<p>{{total}}</p>')(scope) is the example from the docs.

In practice you’ll probably want to do something like this:

//Example as a directive's link function
function link(scope, element, attributes){ = "world";
  template = "<p>hello {{name}}</p>"; //this could come from anywhere

This example appends the compiled contents instead of replacing it:

function link(scope, element, attributes){
  scope.something = "this is bananas";
  $compile("<p>{{something}}</p>")(scope, function(cloned, scope){

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