how can create and append an element to document body? (angular)

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

In a directive i want to create a div and append it to the document. what am i doing wrong?

var mover = angular.element('<div></div>');

    mover.css({
      position: 'absolute',
      top: '0px',
      bottom: '0px',
      left: '33px',
      width: '50px',
      background: 'blue',
      zIndex: '2'
    });

    $document.append( mover );

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

Maybe a lighter weight approach would be:

angular.element(document.body).append(myElement);

Method 2

Well, you still have to append your element on on another element. Try something like this:

var body = $document.find('body').eq(0);
body.append(mover)

Method 3

I think this will be better way to append an element into body

var mover = angular.element('<div></div>');

mover.css({
  position: 'absolute',
  top: '0px',
  bottom: '0px',
  left: '33px',
  width: '50px',
  background: 'blue',
  zIndex: '2'
});

var body = angular.element(document).find('body').eq(0);

body.append(mover)

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