Definition and Usage

The ng-if directive removes the HTML element if the expression evaluates to false.

If the if statement evaluates to true, a copy of the Element is added in the DOM.

The ng-if directive is different from the ng-hide, which hides the display of the element, where the ng-if directive completely removes the element from the DOM.


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

Supported by all HTML elements.

Parameter Values
