Validation

AngularJS form validation allows to monitor the state of the html element and add functionalities depending upon the states of the html element. It also allows us to define different classes for different states of the element, here we discuss about adding different classes and functionalities depending upon the states of the DateRangePicker element.

The states of the element may be pristine, touched, Untouched, dirty etc., which defines the actual states of the element.

The input element CSS properties can be varied depending upon the states of the input elements
as mentioned below.

  • html
  • <style>   
         .e-daterangewidget.e-input.ng-touched.ng-pristine, input.ng-touched.ng-pristine {
                background-color: #d3d3d3;
            }
    
            .e-daterangewidget.e-input.ng-touched.ng-dirty, input.ng-touched.ng-dirty {
                background-color: #b0c4de;
            }
    
            .e-daterangewidget.e-input.ng-untouched, input.ng-untouched  {
                background-color:  #ffffe0;
            }
    
            .e-daterangewidget.e-input.ng-untouched.ng-dirty {
                    background-color: #e0ffff;
                }
    </style>

    In the above CSS classes, the normal input elements have been initialized using the input keyword but the DataRangePicker component, CSS classes are initialized by using “.e-daterangewidget.e-input”.

    AngularJS provides classes and properties on the form and its inputs so that you can style each state accordingly.

    ng-valid - whether an item is currently valid based on the rules you placed.
    ng-invalid - whether an item is currently invalid based on the rules you placed.
    ng-pristine - The form/input has not been used yet.
    ng-dirty – The form/input has been used.
    ng-touched – The input has been blurred.
