Include custom directives on DTColumnBuilder renderwidth

Is there a way for DTColumnBuilder.newColumn.renderWidth to include custom directives? Here is a draft code of what I want to achieve.

DTColumnBuilder.newColumn('reportStructureName').withTitle('Structure Name')
    .renderWith((data, type, full) => {
          return "<my-directive></my-directive>"; 
     }),

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

You can $compile the cell content in the createdCell callback. Here is a very simple example, with a directive that does nothing but coloring the text red. Sorry for not using arrow functions 🙂

$scope.data = [
     { reportStructureName : "structurename1" },
     { reportStructureName : "structurename2" },
     { reportStructureName : "structurename3" },
     { reportStructureName : "structurename4" }
]

$scope.dtOptions = DTOptionsBuilder.newOptions()
    .withOption('data', $scope.data)
    .withPaginationType('full_numbers');

$scope.dtColumns = [       
   DTColumnBuilder.newColumn('reportStructureName')
    .withTitle('Structure Name')
    .renderWith(function(data, type, full) {
       return "<my-directive>"+data+"</my-directive>"; 
    })      
    .withOption('createdCell', function(td, cellData, rowData, row, col) {
       $compile( td )( $scope ); //<--- here
    })  
]    

Directive :

.directive('myDirective', function() {
  return {
    restrict: 'AE',
    link: function (scope, element, attr, ctrl) {
       angular.element(element).css('color', 'red')
    }   
  }
})

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