Hi,
I have an app and controller. I want to pass a variable through an html tag without using a directive or using init.  This is being added to existing code.  I can't change the line below.

I have the div below.  How can I read the height and width values?

<div data-ng-app="AngularApp" data-ng-controller="TestController" width = '100' height = '200' ></div>

The best practice say : Don't do DOM manipulation inside controller, use a directive.
You don't want to use a directive so why are you using angular ?
Let say you can't really change the line, close your eyes and just use :

var ngAppEl = $("div[data-ng-app]");
var w = ngAppEl.attr("width");
var h = ngAppEl.attr("height");

Open in new window


Now pray that the police don't catch you :)
