AngularJS and generated elements

We have some third party javascript components that are generating some html elements. I'd like to couple it with AngularJS.

I've tried this code

<div ng-controller="ExpensesCtrl">
    <form id="expensesform">
        <input type="text" ng-model="" />
        <input type="text" ng-model="expense.amount" />
    <button ng-click="add()">Add</button>expense | json

function ExpensesCtrl($scope) {

    $scope.expense = {};
    $scope.add = function () {
        $("#expensesform").append("<input type='text' ng-model='expense.age' />");

but it doesn't work like excepted.

Is there any chance to get this working ?

This is the wrong way to do it, but for this particular scenario you'd want to do something like this: Inject the $compile service.

Again, this isn't the right way to do it with Angular. Angular's thing is 'You don't have to mess with the DOM in your controller, let the HTML and directives do that'.

You want to create a directive to wrap whatever is generating your elements and let that do it. Read the directives guide for examples:

The angular way, to have your model perfectly synced, and to dynamically add or remove input types would be with

you should provide the plugin we are talking about here, maybe angular blows this plugin away with just a few codes...

I have found this answer: AngularJS - Compiling dynamic HTML strings from database

Maybe it helps others. It describes how to use the $compile service to get Angular to know about the knew Code.
