How to add many functions in ONE ng-click?

The question:

I’ve be looking for how to execute this but I can’t find anything related so far, 🙁
I could nest both functions yes but I’m just wondering if this is possible?
I’d like to do this literally:

<td><button class="btn" ng-click="edit($index) open()">Open me!</button></td>

My JS code at the moment:

$ = function () {
  $scope.shouldBeOpen = true;

$scope.edit = function(index){

  var content_1, content_2;
      content_1 = $scope.people[index].name;
      content_2 = $scope.people[index].age;


I’d like to call two functions with just one click, how can I do this in angularJS?
I thought it’d be straight forward like in CSS when you add multiple classes…but it’s not 🙁

The Solutions:

Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.

Method 1

You have 2 options :

  1. Create a third method that wrap both methods. Advantage here is that you put less logic in your template.

  2. Otherwise if you want to add 2 calls in ng-click you can add ‘;’ after edit($index) like this

    ng-click="edit($index); open()"

See here :

Method 2

You can call multiple functions with ‘;’

ng-click="edit($index); open()"

Method 3

A lot of people use (click) option so I will share this too.

<button (click)="function1()" (click)="function2()">Button</button>

Method 4

The standard way to add Multiple functions

<button (click)="removeAt(element.bookId); openDeleteDialog()"> Click Here</button>


<button (click)="removeAt(element.bookId)" (click)="openDeleteDialog()"> Click Here</button>

Method 5

Try this:

  • Make a collection of functions
  • Make a function that loops through and executes all the functions in the collection.
  • Add the function to the html
array = [
    function() {},
    function() {},
    function() {}

function loop() {
    array.forEach(item) {

ng - click = "loop()"

Method 6

Follow the below


anyFunction() {
   // call another function here

Method 7

ng-click "$watch(edit($index), open())"
