JSPanel is one of the popular jQuery plugin for creating dynamic re-sizeable panels. In this article we can see how to create a Angualr Js directive for Js Panel so that it can be used in an application in Angular way.

Intro to jsPanel

JSPanel can be used as floating panel, model window or as tooltip. The content can be loaded using static or ajax content.  JsPanel comes with a set of in-built icons but we are free to use Bootstrap or font awesome icons and override the default ones. As this is a jQuery plugin, jQuery 1.9 or above and jQuery UI 1.9 or above is a pre-requisite for this plugin.

Angular Directive

 app.directive('floatingPanel', function () {
     return {
         restrict: 'A',
         scope: {
             parentTag: '@',
             title: '@',
             content: '@',
             theme: '@',         
         link: function (scope, elem, attrs) {
             var config =
                 title: scope.title == undefined ? '' : scope.title,
                 position: "center",
                 size: { width: 450, height: 250 },
                 content: scope.htmlTag == undefined ? scope.content : $('#'+ scope.htmlTag),
                 theme: scope.theme == undefined ? 'success' : scope.theme,
             var size, position;
             if (scope.parentTag != undefined) {
                 var element = $('#' + scope.parentTag);
                 var pos = element.offset();
                 config.size = { width: element.width(), height: element.height() };
                 config.position = { top:, left: pos.left }
             var panel1 = $.jsPanel({

parentTag – to set the height, width position based on the html tag
title – to add the title for the panel
content – string parameter, which can be html or plain text.  Or htmlTag – to load the html content  from the page (id as the value).
theme -  to add the theme for the panel.


 var app = angular.module('appModule', []);
 (function () {
     app.controller('mainController', ['$scope', function ($scope) {
         $scope.title = "Title";
         $ = new Date().toUTCString();
         $scope.onclick = function () {
             $ = new Date().toUTCString();
