Understanding ng-if,ng-switch,ng-show, ng-hide and ng-repeat directives


AngularJs provide a different directive to display elements in HTML document based on different conditions we can use directives like ng-if, ng-switch , ng-show and ng-repeat directive. 

ng-if


ng-if directive remove DOM element if expression return false. And if expression return true then it recreates a DOM tree again.

ng-if create new scope every time when it call.

ng-show

ng-show use to show and hide elements from DOM but without manipulation in DOM. The main difference between ng-if and ng-show is ng-show add "class='ng-hide'" attribute into element if expression return false and remove "class="ng-hide" attribute from element when expression return true . ng-show not manipulate DOM. ng-show work on CSS display property.

display: none !important;

ng-repeat

ng-repeat directive work on collection , ng-repeat iterate over collection and generate HTML from it.

If you are using example like

<li ng-repeat="item in collections"> .. </li>

AngularJS create a new scope for every LI instance that it generated. And put the "item" cursor reference inside that per-item

ng-repeat example
