angularjsHow can I use a getter in AngularJS?

A getter in AngularJS is a function that retrieves a value from a property or object.

Here is an example of a getter in AngularJS:

var app = angular.module('myApp', []);

app.controller('myController', function($scope) {
    $scope.name = "John Doe";

    $scope.getName = function() {
        return $scope.name;

The getName function is the getter. It is used to retrieve the value of the name property.

To use the getter, you can simply call it like this:

var name = $scope.getName();

console.log(name); // Output: "John Doe"

The code above will output the value of the name property, which is "John Doe".
