AngularJS To do App – Part IV

Following from the previous entry, there was just one feature remaining for the rudimentary functionalities of our app:

  • Check of an item

I added an input checkbox to the ngRepeat construct. And after some fumbling around and going through some forums + angularjs developer documentation, I managed to apply a simple class styling to the item in the list when the checkbox is checked.

// Class applied when model ticked is true
<input type="checkbox" name="tickbox" ng-model="ticked" />
<span ng-class="{'checked': ticked}"> {{ item }} </span>

// CSS style that's applied
.checked {
color: gainsboro;

This accomplishes a somewhat crude implementation of a To Do list item being checked off. However, the styling seems to fall through to the next item when a checked item is deleted. Also a checked item should preferably be locked from being edited.

So that still needs to be worked on and possibly some extra refactoring of the code in terms of button states as extra conditions required to prevent the fall through will only add to the growing list of conditions on some of the buttons already:

<button type="submit" ng-show="updateShow" ng-click="update($index, editedItem); updateShow= false; showEditInput = false; editShow = true;">Update</button>

Apart from that some aesthetic tweaks to the design and form is warranted. So stay tuned and check out the latest:
