Angular 1.x or Angular 2?

Why not use ng-show / ng-hide

https://docs.angularjs.org/api/ng/directive/ngShow
https://docs.angularjs.org/api/ng/directive/ngHide

Without knowing the specifics of your code and the conditions you want to hide show on - cannot provide a code solution - however if you do  something like this

<ul>
  <li ng-repeat="item in items" ngShow="item.value==condition">{{item.option}}</li>
</ul>

Open in new window

Or if you need more control over the condition
<ul>
  <li ng-repeat="item in items" ngShow="showItem(item)">{{item.option}}</li>
</ul>

Open in new window

And the in your controller you return true or false from the showitem function based on the criteria you want to show / hide on

Thank you for your response.I am using Angular 1.5 . Could you please elaborate the above explanation.

My requirement is , In the pen I took array of elements in javascript to show in menu (In reality the  Menu items will be New, Delete, Update, Print etc.) . From API I get some data and based on condition the menu items will change.

Ex:

If condition1==true
showMenuItems=["NEw", "Print"];

If condition2==true
showMenuItems=["Update","Print"]

If condition3==true
showMenuItems=["New"," Delete", "Update", "Print"]

My question is should I take 3 separate arrays as I have 3 conditions with different array of elements or should I add / remove elements in the array based on condition . It would be great if you provide sample code.

Thanks in advance

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

var conditions = {
      {         Option: “New”,
                          Condition: 1,
            Option: “Print”,
                          Condition: 1,
      },
      {         Option: “Update”,
                          Condition: 2,
            Option: “Print”,
                          Condition: 2,
      },
}
Var filterCondition = 1;
You can filter the JSON data as
Var showMenuItems  = Conditions.filter(function(item){ return item.Condition == filterCondition; })

I have created a new fork http://codepen.io/anon/pen/akPgaw

This makes the following changes
HTML
<md-menu md-offset="0 -7">
  <md-button aria-label="Open demo menu" class="md-icon-button" ng-click="$mdOpenMenu($event)">
    <md-icon md-menu-origin="" md-svg-icon="call:chat"></md-icon>
  </md-button>
  <md-menu-content width="2">
    <md-menu-item 
      ng-repeat="item in ctrl.menuItems" 
      ng-show="item.conditions.indexOf(ctrl.condition) != -1">

      <md-button  ng-click="ctrl.announceClick(item)"> <span md-menu-align-target=""></span> {{item.caption}}</md-button>
    </md-menu-item>

  </md-menu-content>
</md-menu>

Open in new window

Angular
function DemoCtrl($mdDialog) {
  var vm = this;

  // condition determins what is shown
  vm.condition = 3;
  
  // menuItems array changed to be an array
  // of objects with a caption and an array
  // that specifies what conditions are 
  // valid for this menu item
  
  vm.menuItems=[{
    caption: "Option 1",
    conditions: [1,2]
  },{
    caption: "Option2",
    conditions: [2,3]
  },{
    caption: "Option3",
    conditions: [1,2,3]
  },{
    caption: "Option4",
    conditions: [2]
  },{
    caption: "Option5",
    conditions: [1,2,3,4]
  }];
  
  ...
}

Open in new window

You will see that the Angular code changes the definition of the menuItems so they are now an array of objects with a caption and an array showing what conditions the item is valid for.
The HTML has an ng-show that shows the item based on whether the current ctrl.condition value is contained in the items conditions array.
