Bug description / Feature request:

I used a custom template for the calendarMonthCell. To do what I needed, I needed access to functions in the controller for the parent scope. I couldn't find any options that allowed that, so I wanted to make a feature request for one. Here's how I solved it:

In the mwlCalendar directive I added to the scope:

parentCtl: '=?'

In the mwlCalendarMonth directive I added to the scope:

 parentCtl: '=?'

(You could add it to the other view directives too, but I am only using the month view)

In the template for the month view that uses the mwl-calendar-month directive I added:


(Again you could do the same thing in the other view templates.)
Then I used the mwl-calendar directive like so:

<div ng-controller="MyCalendarController as cal">
            custom-template-urls="{calendarMonthCell: 'customMonthCell.html'}"

And in my custom template I was able to access the parent controller via vm.parentCtl.

There might be a better way to do this via transclusion but I had trouble doing it that way because I then also needed transclusion in the view directives and it caused conflicts. I'm open to other possibilities though. I think this would be a really good addition to angular-bootstrap-calendar.

Great job with angular-bootstrap-calendar. It works really well!

BTW, this was done as part of my work for Social and Scientific Systems and you can reach me at regarding it.
