Complex Items with Option Buttons

I struggled with getting a complex <ion-item> to work properly. The problem is that the directive wraps your content inside a div with a item-content class. You can’t style that class - or at least not easily.

I ended up just taking the code that was generated and modifying it. Maybe someone has a better suggestion or maybe this will help others:

To replace a traditional <ion-item> like this:

<ion-item class="spot-img-item stretch-content"
    ng-repeat="(locationKey, location) in mapdropCtrl.fls.val"
    style="background-image: url(img/{{location.img}});">
  <div class="drop-cover-text">
  <p>Favorite Location</p>
  <ion-option-button class="button-positive" ng-click="share(item)">
  <ion-option-button class="button-info" ng-click="edit(item)">

I created this:

<div class="spot-img-item item item-complex item-left-editable"
   ng-repeat="(locationKey, location) in mapdropCtrl.fls.val">
  <div class="item-content stretch-content " style="background-image: url(img/austin.jpg);">
    <div class="drop-cover-text">
      <h2 class="ng-binding">Austin</h2>
      <p>Favorite Location</p>
  <div class="item-options">
    <div class="spot-options">
      <div class="button-assertive button" ng-click="mapdropCtrl.share('someid')">
        <i class="icon ion-ios7-upload-outline"></i>
      <span class="button-divider"></span>
      <div class="button-assertive button" ng-click="mapdropCtrl.delete('someid')">
        <i class="icon ion-ios7-trash-outline"></i>

So what are you trying to do @Calendee?

Needed a list with option buttons where the items have a background that is set dynamically. Then, the text has to float on top.

Ahh alright, that makes sense.

Let me try to hash something out real quick.

Code above has it working. Sorry - didn’t make that clear.

Note sure it’s a great way, but it works.

Ah alright…still went a head and played around with it to see if it was possible to re-use the default structure.


Ahhh As a directive. Clever.

Thanks. I’ll figure out which works best and is more performant.

One thing does ion-list still not work with collection-repeat? Seem to recall that you couldn’t do option buttons with collection repeat.

Well you can, but right now it’s a bit wonky. There’s a few things that need to get ironed out first

hey. that sounds interesting. cause i am trying since some time to create a collection-repeat with an ion-list (i need it for the option items) and if i try to open a option item of a specific item it does open the option item on another item. will this be possible in the future?

Yup, it will be possible. Just need to work on a few things before 1.0

ohhh that sounds very good. so till then i have go on with the normal ng-repeat. many thanks updating me on that
