ej-datetimepicker: Unable to apply our own custom directives to an element when ej-datetimepicker is applied to same element.

Since applying the upgrade, directives which we're applying to an element which has ej-datetimepicker applied to it, are not being applied.

So for example, if I have the following basic directive:

angular.module("ma.directives").directive("maSyncFusionDisabled", [function () {
    return {
        type: "A",
        scope: true,
        link: function (scope, element, attrs) {

And apply it alongside ej-datetimepicker:

<input ma-sync-fusion-disabled="isTemplateLive" ej-datetimepicker />

... the 'console.log("linked")' above is not triggered.

If I remove ej-datetimepicker from the element, it is triggered.

There are no errors in the console log which might help.

I have tried the various scope types to our directive. eg:
  • scope: true
  • scope: {}
  • ... or no scope at all.

Just for your info, this doesn't just affect our custom Directives, but standard AngularJS directives (eg. ng-blur) are no longer applying to your control (they did prior to the upgrade).

It's also affecting ejNumberSpinner.

I haven't checked other controls.

This is not isolated to just the date picker I can replicate the lack of ng-blur in the numeric text box too however it does look like both ng-blur and e-focusout are not firing in the playground.
