Module Description

Angular Bootstrap Show Errors

An Angular directive for Bootstrap 3 that intelligently applies the 'has-error' class to invalid form fields.

See the Bootstrap Form Validation Done Right in AngularJS blog post to read about the benefits of using this directive.

Installation

With Bower

bower install angular-bootstrap-show-errors

Manually

Copy the src/showErrors.js or src/showErrors.min.js file into your project.

Quick Start

  1. Include the ui.bootstrap.showErrors module in your Angular app
angular.module('yourApp', ['ui.bootstrap.showErrors']);
  1. Add the show-errors attribute on the div element that contains the form-group class
<form name="userForm">
  <div class="form-group" show-errors>
    <input type="text" name="firstName" ng-model="firstName" ng-required />
  </div>
</form>
  1. If you want to avoid the extra bottom margin of form-group, you can use input-group.
<form name="userForm">
  <div class="input-group" show-errors>
    <input type="text" name="firstName" ng-model="firstName" ng-required />
  </div>
</form>

Force Validity Check

By default this directive doesn't check the validity until the user tabs off the input element. However, there are times you want to show invalid form elements even if the user has not tabbed off. (e.g. before saving the form)

To force the validity check, broadcast the show-errors-check-validity event.

Example

<form name="userForm">
  <div class="form-group" show-errors>
    <input type="text" name="firstName" ng-model="firstName" ng-required />
  </div>
  <input type="submit" ng-click="save()" />
</form>
$scope.save = function() {
  $scope.$broadcast('show-errors-check-validity');
  
  if ($scope.userForm.$valid) {
    // save the user
  }
}

Reset

If you have functionality to reset your form, you can broadcast the 'show-errors-reset' event to remove any errors on the form elements.

Example

<form name="userForm">
  <div class="form-group" show-errors>
    <input type="text" name="firstName" ng-model="firstName" ng-required />
  </div>
  <a href="#" ng-click="reset()">Reset</a>
</form>
$scope.reset = function() {
  $scope.$broadcast('show-errors-reset');
}

Show Valid Entries

It's also possible to let the user know when they have entered valid values by applying the 'show-success' class that Bootstrap provides. You can either apply this globally or on an element by element basis.

Globally

The following example shows how to show valid values on every input that uses the showErrors directive.

app = angular.module('yourApp', ['ui.bootstrap.showErrors']);
app.config(['showErrorsConfigProvider', function(showErrorsConfigProvider) {
  showErrorsConfigProvider.showSuccess(true);
}]);
By Input Element

If you only want to show valid values on specific inputs, then you can pass in the { showSuccess: true } option like the example below shows.

<form name="userForm">
  <div class="form-group" show-errors="{ showSuccess: true }">
    <input type="text" name="firstName" ng-model="firstName" ng-required />
  </div>
</form>

Skip Form Group Check

If your HTML code doesn't have a form-group class, the form group check can be skipped:

<form name="userForm">
<div show-errors="{ skipFormGroupCheck: true }">
<input type="text" name="firstName" ng-model="firstName" ng-required />
</div>
</form>

Custom Trigger

By default, the validation is not performed until the blur event is trigger on the input element. However, there are some scenarios where this is not desirable, so it's possible to override this with the trigger option.

By Input Element
<form name="userForm">
  <div class="form-group" show-errors="{ trigger: 'keypress' }">
    <input ng-model="firstName" ng-pattern="/^foo$/" ng-required name="firstName" class="form-control" type="text" />
  </div>
</form>
Globally
app = angular.module('yourApp', ['ui.bootstrap.showErrors']);
app.config(['showErrorsConfigProvider', function(showErrorsConfigProvider) {
  showErrorsConfigProvider.trigger('keypress');
}]);

Development

Install Development Dependencies

Before you begin development, you will need to install the required node modules and bower components. To do so, open a terminal window in the project directory and run the following commands.

npm install
bower install

Compile and Run the Unit Tests

Just type grunt in the command line to compile and run the karma unit tests once.

If you want to have grunt watch for any file changes and automatically compile and run the karma unit tests, then run the following command:

grunt karma:continuous:start watch
