    How to remove duplates in ng-repeat

    I have an ng-repeat with duplicates that need to be removed. According to the doc, the unique function is a part of Angular UI, which does not appear to be included in Umbraco. Is there a way to add it Angular UI? How do I remove the duplicates?

        <div style="float:left;margin-right:15px; ">
            <select id="SearchClass" ng-model="searchTerm" size="20" style=" height:500px;">
                <option ng-repeat="g in model.availableItems | unique: 'model.availableItems.config.searchClass'" value="{{g.config.searchClass}}">{{g.config.searchClass}}n</option>

    Hi Graham

    Maybe you can add a custom filter to make it works:

    // here we define our unique filter
    testApp.filter("unique", function() {
      // we will return a function which will take in a collection
      // and a keyname
      return function(collection, keyname) {
        // we define our output and keys array;
        var output = [],
          keys = [];
        // we utilize angular's foreach function
        // this takes in our original collection and an iterator function
        angular.forEach(collection, function(item) {
          // we check to see whether our object exists
          var key = item[keyname];
          // if it's not already part of our keys array
          if (keys.indexOf(key) === -1) {
            // add it to our keys array
            // push this item to our final output array
        // return our array which should be devoid of
        // any duplicates
        return output;

    Thank you Alex.

    I am trying to modify the Content Picker in Umbraco's BackOffice and my knowledge of Angular is Basic. How do I get that to work with / in the controller Umbraco.Overlays.ItemPickerOverlay?
