    AngularJS is an open source free and most popular JavaScript client-side framework which provides a great power to built HTML and JavaScript based web application.

     

    This tutorial is in continuation with my previous tutorials, regarding AngularJs and if you are beginner then first go to the intoductory tutorials mentioned below:

     

     

    This tutorial is all about Simple AngularJs Validation Form. Here, Validation is basically monitoring the state of form and input fields and then later provides the current state about the input and form to the user and this all is done by Angularjs Validation.

    In this blog I am sharing a simple example in which user will register himself and once the user will be registered he/she can check their details.

    Different type of Angularjs Validation features is used in this example.

     

    Validation features in input tags:

    • $pristine : This property is used to ensure that the input  field has not been modified.
    • $dirty :  This property is used to ensure that the input  field has been modified.
    • $invalid :This property is used to ensure that the input  field  content is not valid.
    • $valid  :  This property is used to ensure that the input  field content is valid.
    • $untouched :This property is used to ensure that the input  field has not been touched.
    • $touched : This property is used to ensure that the input  field field has been touched.

     

    Validation features in Form:

    • $pristine : This property is used to ensure that  none of the form fields have been modified.
    • $dirty  :  This property is used to ensure that  One or more form fields have been modified.
    • $invalid  : This property is used to ensure that the form content is not valid.
    • $valid :  This property is used to ensure that the form content  is valid.
    • $submitted :  This property is used to ensure that the form is submitted successfully.

     


    Please go through the example below to understand how we can use angularjs to register user.

    In this example user can change their information by using  edit and delete feature even after getting registered once.
