Use AngularJS in Popup Editor Templates

The following example demonstrates how to use AngularJS directives in a custom Grid popup editor template.

The dataItem is made dirty through ng-change for HTML elements and k-on-change for Kendo UI widgets. Otherwise, the DataSource does not update the modified data items.

Example
    <div id="example" ng-app="KendoDemos">
      <div ng-controller="MyCtrl">
        <kendo-grid options="mainGridOptions"></kendo-grid>

        <script type="text/x-kendo-template" id="template">
            <label>Product Name <input k-on-change="dataItem.dirty=true" kendo-dropdownlist k-data-source="productNames" data-bind="value: ProductName" /><label>
            <br />
            <label>Unit Price <input k-on-change="dataItem.dirty=true" kendo-numeric-text-box data-bind="value: UnitPrice" /></label>
            <br />
            <label my-directive>Discontinued <input type="checkbox" ng-change="dataItem.dirty=true" ng-model="dataItem.Discontinued" /></label>
        </script>
      </div>
    </div>

    <script>
      var crudServiceBaseUrl = "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service";
      angular.module("KendoDemos", [ "kendo.directives" ])
      .directive("myDirective", function() {
        return {
          restrict: "AE",
          link: function(scope, element) {
            if (scope.dataItem.Discontinued) {
              element.css("background-color", "red");
            } else {
              element.css("background-color", "green");
            }
          }
        };
      })
      .controller("MyCtrl", function($scope) {
        $scope.mainGridOptions = {
          dataSource: {
            transport: {
              read:  {
