Hi,   I am new to Angular but am trying to learn!
I have developed a simple form to capture user contact details.  

The form Submit button should only work when all the required fields of the form are validated but it does not work.

I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction.

Here's a picture of the form:

Here's my code:

  <ng-form name="frmEm" class="row" ng-if="IsEmail">
        <div class=" col-lg-6 col-md-6">
            <h3>Send Result as Email</h3>

            <div class="form-group">
                <select class="form-control" required name="title" ng-model="returnValues.title">
                    <option value="">Select</option>
                    <option value="">Mr</option>
                    <option value="">Mrs</option>
                    <option value="">Miss</option>
                    <option value="">Dr</option>
                </select>
            </div>

            <div class="form-group">
                <input class="form-control" placeholder="Firstname" type="text" required name="firstname" ng-model="returnValues.firstname" />
            </div>

            <div class="form-group">

The problem is you have a required on your <select> but none of the options have values

You want to change this
<option value="">Select</option>
<option value="">Mr</option>
<option value="">Mrs</option>
<option value="">Miss</option>
<option value="">Dr</option>

Open in new window

To something like this
<option value="">Select</option>
<option value="Mr">Mr</option>
<option value="Mrs">Mrs</option>
<option value="Miss">Miss</option>
<option value="Dr">Dr</option>

Open in new window

Without values that control is ending up being empty irrespective of what you select so the form will be invalid.

May I also ask - is there a fancy Angular way of showing which of the inputs are required?

something like..

(Thought this was posted already)
You can create a directive to prepend code to the front of them.

modulename.directive("required", function() {
   return {
       restrict: 'A', 
       compile: function(element) {
           element.prepend('<span class="required-field">*</span>');
       }
   }
}

Open in new window


However, if you know your required fields up front might as well add the code yourself when you create the form - can't see any benefit to doing it with a directive.

The input / select are both accessible via CSS as well

Thanks.

Youre probably right - I might as well do it with the form layout.

I thought there was a clever way of doing it as the controls have the "REQUIRED" property.

 <input class="form-control" placeholder="Firstname" type="text" required name="firstname" ng-model="returnValues.firstname" />

Meant the last line to say

The input / select are available via CSS like so

input:required, select:required {
}

Open in new window


Angular is a framework for creating applications - interactions like form styling etc you need to add yourself. One option is to just have your required boxes a different colour rather than putting an asterisk there.
