Angualr js do form validation very verbose way but still you need to add more. $scope.familyForm.$setValidity(submit,false);

complete this using this reference

But don’t forget to pass valid condition for our new validation. I faced problem saving form i was’nt supplying the passing condition to the validation.

//this will make form whole form invalid.
//so, $scope.<form-name>.$valid  will be false

//if all your conditions are matched then make is valid.


$broadcast and $emit in angaular js.

  • $broadcast goes from top to bottom or parent to all children.
  • $emit travels from child to parent.
  • $on will get the message and act on it.

	data: 'all children come home'

	return 'coming';

	data: 'father take me home'

	return 'do it by your self';

create and destroy the scope in angaular

careating a new scope is simple var new_scope = scope.$new()

and destroy with $destroy

new_scope.$destroy() to stop memory leak due to scopes in angaular. It developer duty to handle created scope./

Watching for changes in angularjs there are following for this.

  • $watch

      $scope.$watch('prop',function(newValue, oldValue){
  • $watchGroup If we want to watch more than one property

      $scope.$watchGroup(['propOne','prop2'],function(newValues, oldValues){
  • $watchCollection Two watch the array or complex data.

Angular wise choose for the function.

  • $digest is better than $apply.
  • $observe is faster than $watch. as $watch will run two to functions to complete the task one for comparision and then for the callback.

Angular Testing

  1. Testing it good for the project to gain confidance about the coding.

lets try to write testing for the following code directive.

  'use strict';
        restrict: 'E',
        scope: {
          product: '='
        templateUrl: 'camp_inst.html',
        link: linkFunction,
        controller: ['$scope', campaignInstruction],
        controllerAs: 'campIns'
       // bindToController: true

      function linkFunction(scope, element, attrs){


      function campaignInstruction($scope, offerFactory, advertiserFactory){
        /* jshint validthis: true */
        var vm = this;
        vm.someValues = [1,2,3,4];
        vm.offerTypes = offerFactory;


This directive has templateUrl with this.
