How to validate email id in angularJs using ng-pattern

Am trying to validate an Email id field in angularJs using ng-pattern directive.

But am new to AngularJs. I need to show an error message as soon as the user enters the wrong email id.

The code which I have below is am trying to solve. Help me out with using ng-pattern for getting the proper result.

<script type="text/javascript" src="/Login/script/ang.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
function Ctrl($scope) {
$scope.text = 'enter email';
$scope.word = /^[a-z]+[a-z0-9._]+@[a-z]+\.[a-z.]{2,5}$/;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form name="myform" ng-controller="Ctrl">
<input type="text" ng-pattern="word" name="email">
<span class="error" ng-show="myform.email.$error.pattern">
invalid email!
</span>
<input type="submit" value="submit">
</form>
</body>

Answer

If you want to validate email then use input with type="email" instead of type="text". AngularJS has email validation out of the box, so no need to use ng-pattern for this.

Here is the example from original documentation:

<script>
function Ctrl($scope) {
  $scope.text = 'me@example.com';
}
</script>
<form name="myForm" ng-controller="Ctrl">
  Email: <input type="email" name="input" ng-model="text" required>
  <br/>
  <span class="error" ng-show="myForm.input.$error.required">
    Required!</span>
  <span class="error" ng-show="myForm.input.$error.email">
    Not valid email!</span>
  <br>
  <tt>text = {{text}}</tt><br/>
  <tt>myForm.input.$valid = {{myForm.input.$valid}}</tt><br/>
  <tt>myForm.input.$error = {{myForm.input.$error}}</tt><br/>
  <tt>myForm.$valid = {{myForm.$valid}}</tt><br/>
  <tt>myForm.$error.required = {{!!myForm.$error.required}}</tt><br/>
  <tt>myForm.$error.email = {{!!myForm.$error.email}}</tt><br/>
</form>

For more details read this doc: https://docs.angularjs.org/api/ng/input/input%5Bemail%5D

UPD:

If you are not satisfied with built-in email validator and you want to use your custom RegExp pattern validation then ng-pattern directive can be applied and according to the documentation the error message can be displayed like this:

The validator sets the pattern error key if the ngModel.$viewValue does not match a RegExp

<script>
function Ctrl($scope) {
  $scope.text = 'me@example.com';
  $scope.emailFormat = /^[a-z]+[a-z0-9._]+@[a-z]+\.[a-z.]{2,5}$/;
}
</script>
<form name="myForm" ng-controller="Ctrl">
  Email: <input type="email" name="input" ng-model="text" ng-pattern="emailFormat" required>
  <br/><br/>
  <span class="error" ng-show="myForm.input.$error.required">
    Required!
  </span><br/>
  <span class="error" ng-show="myForm.input.$error.pattern">
    Not valid email!
  </span>
  <br><br>
  <tt>text = {{text}}</tt><br/>
  <tt>myForm.input.$valid = {{myForm.input.$valid}}</tt><br/>
  <tt>myForm.input.$error = {{myForm.input.$error}}</tt><br/>
  <tt>myForm.$valid = {{myForm.$valid}}</tt><br/>
  <tt>myForm.$error.required = {{!!myForm.$error.required}}</tt><br/>
  <tt>myForm.$error.pattern = {{!!myForm.$error.pattern}}</tt><br/>
</form>
