angularjsHow can I use AngularJS to handle events?

AngularJS provides the ng-click directive which allows you to handle events in your application. This directive can be added to any HTML element and will call a function in your controller when the element is clicked.

For example:

<button ng-click="myFunction()">Click me</button>

The above code will call the myFunction() in your controller when the button is clicked.

In your controller you can define the myFunction() like this:

$scope.myFunction = function() {
    alert('You clicked the button!');

When the button is clicked, the alert will be displayed:

You clicked the button!

The ng-click directive is just one of the many ways to handle events with AngularJS. You can also use ng-change, ng-blur, ng-focus, ng-dblclick, ng-mousedown, ng-mouseup, ng-mouseenter, ng-mouseleave, ng-keydown, ng-keyup, ng-keypress and more.

For more information, see the AngularJS documentation.
