  • Last Updated : 01 Aug, 2022

The ng-if Directive in AngularJS is used to remove or recreate a portion of the HTML element based on an expression. The ng-if is different from the ng-hide directive because it completely removes the element in the DOM rather than just hiding the display of the element. If the expression inside it is false then the element is removed and if it is true then the element is added to the DOM.

Syntax:

<element ng-if="expression"> 
    Contents... 
</element>

Parameter Value:

  • expression: It will return false if an expression completely removes the element, & returns true if a copy of the element will be inserted instead, or the element will be created.

Example 1: This example changes the content after clicking the button.
