In this article, we will learn to disable the button depending upon the check-box status in Angular. We will use the Angular JS directive named ng-disabled to disable the button by unchecking the box. Please refer to AngularJS ng-disabled Directive.

The ng-disabled directive is used to enable or disable the HTML elements. If the expression inside the ng-disabled directive returns true then the HTML element would be disabled and vice versa. 

Approach: Here in the example, we have taken a checkbox and based on the checkbox, we are checking that whether the submit button is to be enabled or disabled. Here ng-model directive is used for binding the checkbox with the submit button & the ng-disabled directive is to handle the disable or enable operations.

Here if the checkbox is checked it will return TRUE and that TRUE will be passed to the ng-disabled directive. As a result, the submit button would be disabled but we need to enable it whenever the checkbox is checked. So for that, we need to have a NOT operation at the ng-disabled directive so that whenever the checkbox returns TRUE, the value that will go to the ng-disabled directive will be FALSE so that the submit button is enabled.

        <input type="checkbox" name="isAgreed" 
            ng-model="isAgreed" />
        <p>I agree with the Terms and Conditions</p>
        <br />
        <!-- If the checkbox is checked then 
            button would be enabled and if not 
            checked then button would be disabled -->
        <button ng-disabled="!isAgreed">Submit</button>
