AngularJS Question

How to change input value to max value if it reaches the {max} AngularJS

I have a form it includes input field which you can enter the amount of money. It has max attr. and if user entered amount of money greater than the max value I would like to set the ng-model parameter value to set max value which is the response of a RESTFull API.

Directly assigned the JSON object value to max attribute. The max value is typed in string as a response of API.

I used currency filters while assigning of the attribute values.

How to set max attribute value to ngModel object's value? If user enters the greater value than max value? Is there a way to change it immidiately and update the input field at the same time?

Also please tell me, If I'm using filters true? or NOT?

<input type="text" name="payableamount" class="form-control input-lg"
min="{{amount | currency:'':2}}"
max="{{billObj.amount | currency:'':2}}"
ng-model="form.bidAmount"
ng-required="true" ui-number-mask>

Answer

Store the value of maxAmount which you got from API and validate it inside the 'checkAmount' function

1.Using ngKeyup:

//html    
<input ng-model="amount" ng-keyup="checkAmount($event,amount)"/>

//js
function MyCtrl($scope, $log) {

    $scope.checkAmount = function(e,amt) {
      if(amt>10){ //assuming maxAmount is 10
          $scope.amount = 10;
          e.preventDefault();
        }
    };
}

2. Using Directive,

<input check-max ng-model="amount"/>


myApp.directive('checkMax', function() {
    return {
    restrict: 'AE', //attribute or element,
    require: 'ngModel',
    link:function(s,e,a,ngModel){
        e.bind('keyup',function(event){
        if(ngModel.$modelValue>10){
          event.preventDefault();
          ngModel.$setViewValue(10);
          ngModel.$render();
        }
      });
    }
  };
});
