AngularJS | ng-copy Directive

The ng-copy Directive in AngularJS is used to specify the custom behavior functions during copy of text in input text fields. It can be used when we want to call a function which will be triggered when the text is copied from the input field. It is supported by all input elements.

Syntax:

<element ng-copy="expression"> Contents... </element>

Where expression tells what to do when the element is copied.



Example: This example uses ng-copy Directive to display a message when element will copy.
