new window using angularjs


I am working on responsive web design using html5,material design and angularjs technologies .I have a icon next to text box and if I click on icon a new window/tab should open and will show list of items in the dropdown and the selected item in the dropdown should be populated in the textbox.I am able to open a new window/tab using $"childwindow") in the Parent controller and I am not sure once I select the item in the dropdown that item should be populated back to Parent window textbox.Can anyone provide me sample code how to communicate between parent and child controller in this scenario ?

Thanks in advance

As a matter of interest why are you doing this with instead of using an inpage pseudo window (positioned / styled div)

As soon as you start opening child windows with you make the process of communicating between child and parent a whole lot more complicated

Why not use something like Angular for Bootstrap and open a modal window. The modal will then be part of the same page and you can attach controllers directly to the modal that will have access to the scopes of the rest of your application.
