AngularJS ng-options Directive


Example

Fill options in a dropdown list by using the items of an array:

<div ng-app="myApp" ng-controller="myCtrl">
<select ng-model="selectedName" ng-options="item for item in names"></select>
</div>

<script>
var app = angular.module('myApp', []);
app.controller('myCtrl', function($scope) {
    $scope.names = ["Emil", "Tobias", "Linus"];
});
</script>
Try it yourself »

Definition and Usage

The ng-options directive fills a <select> element with <options>.

The ng-options directive uses an array to fill the dropdown list. In many cases it would be easier to use the ng-repeat directive, but you have more flexibility when using the ng-options directive.


Syntax

<select ng-options="array expression"></select>

Supported by the <select> element.
