angularjsHow can I use the setInterval function in AngularJS?

The setInterval function in AngularJS is used to execute a function or expression at specified intervals. It is similar to setTimeout, but it will execute the expression repeatedly at the given interval.

Example code

var intervalId = $interval(function(){
  // code to be executed
}, 1000);

This example will execute the code inside the function every 1000 milliseconds (1 second).

Code explanation

  • $interval: This is a wrapper around the browser's setInterval function, and it is used to start the interval.
  • function(){}: This is the function that will be executed at the given interval.
  • 1000: This is the interval in milliseconds.

When the interval is no longer needed, it can be stopped using the $interval.cancel() function.

Example code


This will stop the interval that was started with the intervalId variable.
