conditionally apply classes in angularjs

conditionally apply classes in angularjs

In Angular we can add ,remove classes with the pre-build directive  ng-class. ng-class take value in boolean type

when it get true it add class else it remove class.we can use ng-class in two way.

1) For Single Class 

like we want to add and remove class then we use like below

// add class
ng-class="{'classname': 1}"

// remove class
ng-class="{'classname': 0}"

we can also add it conditionally

like we have a $scope.status and in this value come

  1. 1 or 0

  2. true or false


  1. if it get 1 or true it add class test

  2. if it get 0  or false it remove class test

we will implement it like below

<!-- here $scope.status access by status in 
     angular as we know it is access like this in angular
<div ng-class="{'test': status}"> </div>

and no worry if in element already have class then it will add new class or remove this without any effect on already exist class

like in below div already has old class and we want to add new class according to status as above then it will look like

<div class="old" ng-class="{'new': status}"> </div>

2) For Multiple Class 

it works like below

<!--here variable-name set in [] then 
    if it value 1 or true(Boolean type) then
    add anyclass (here we are applying first_classname) 
    and 0 or false (Boolean type) then
    add anyclass (here we are applying second_classname)
ng-class="{1(or true):'first_classname', 0(or false):'second_classname'}[variable-name]"

now we want to add different class like

  1. if it get 1 or true it add class test_yes

  2. if it get or false it add class test_no

then it will look like below

<div ng-class="{1:'test_yes', 0:'test_no'}[status]"></div>

lets assume $scope.status value can 0,1,2

then we want to apply class

  1. if value 0 apply class one

  2. if value 1 apply class two

  3. if value 2 apply class three

<div ng-class="{0:'one', 1:'two',2:'three'}[status]"></div>

you can set any type condition in ng-class but finally value must be boolean type  like o,1 or true,false etc..

Now Lets create a demo in which we add ,remove and toggle class in angular for single  and multiple class lets create a file

           value will come in three form blue , red ,green
           then class will apply respectively

      <div class="alert" ng-class="{blue:'bg-info', red:'bg-danger',green:'bg-success' }[class_name]"></div>

      <a class="btn btn-info" ng-click="blueClass()"> Blue Class</a>
      <a class="btn btn-danger" ng-click="redClass()">Red Class</a>
      <a class="btn btn-success" ng-click="greenClass()">Green Class</a>
