AngularJS Question

ng-model not working for radio button in AngularJS

I am new to Angular and I am trying to obtain the value of the radio button that the user has selected using ng-model. But I am not getting any output in "selected contact".

Here is My HTML

<!doctype html>
<html ng-app>
<head>
<script src="http://code.angularjs.org/1.2.0rc1/angular.min.js"></script>
<script src="script.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<form name="myForm" ng-controller="Ctrl">
<table border="0">
<th>Contact Type</th>
<tr ng-repeat="contact in contacttype"><td>
<input type="radio" ng-model="contactname" name="group1" value="{{contact.name}}">{{contact.name}}
</td>
</td></tr></table>
<tt>selected contact = {{contactname}}</tt><br/>
</form>
</body>
</html>


Below is my main.js

function Ctrl($scope) {
$scope.contacttype = [
{name: 'Both' },
{name: 'User'},
{name: 'Admin'}
];
}


What am I doing wrong here? Not able to figure out !!!

Answer

Because ng-repeat creates its own scope and what you are trying to do is assign the value to the parent scope from the child scope. So you can do

<input type="radio" ng-model="$parent.contactname" name="group1" value="{{contact.name}}">
