Directive in AngularJs (Part3)


Directives are one of the important parts of AngularJs which is used to extend HTML attributes with prefix ng- keyword.

Some of the examples are

The ng-app directive initializes an AngularJS application.
The ng-init directive initializes application data.
The ng-model directive binds the value of HTML controls (input, select, textarea) to application data

<!DOCTYPE html>
	<meta charset="utf-8" />
    <script src="../Scripts/angular.min.js"></script>
    <div ng-app="" ng-init="EmpNames=[ {FirstName: 'Ram',LastName :'Prasad'},
              {FirstName: 'Mohan',LastName :'Sharma'},
              {FirstName: 'Ravi',LastName :'Verma'}
         ]" >

           <li ng-repeat="name in EmpNames">
               {{ name.FirstName +', '+ name.LastName }}

Note: in the above example we have created EmpNames array with FirstName and LastName object. We are looping in the EmpNames array using ng-repeat directive.
