Get a Widget Instance

AngularJS is now in Long Term Support. You can continue to use it in existing projects but we recommend Angular, Vue, React, or another framework for new projects.

To get a widget instance, save it in a scope property once the widget is initialized:

function Controller ($scope) {
    $scope.menuInstance = {};
    $scope.menuOptions = {
        // ...
        onInitialized: function (e) {
            $scope.menuInstance = e.component;    

Alternatively, you can apply techniques from the jQuery article.
