Angularjs nl2br(textarea newline and linebreak conversion) example with demo

By Hardik Savani | November 8, 2016 | | 6467 Viewer | Category : Bootstrap jQuery AngularJS


Sometimes we require to display message conversion in your angularJS App, But if you are using textarea for write comment or something then text display on same like without line break. But we can display text with likebreak using nl2br(). we can use directly in nl2br() if we work on PHP But if we work on angulaJS then we can't use it directly Because it is not pre-define function.

So, we require to make custom helper or something, So in this example i created custom angular filter for nl2br, that way we can use it globally in angularJS app. we will use nl2br filter add like as bellow :

app.filter('nl2br', function($sce){

return function(msg,is_xhtml) {

var is_xhtml = is_xhtml || true;

var breakTag = (is_xhtml) ? '<br />' : '<br>';

var msg = (msg + '').replace(/([^>\r\n]?)(\r\n|\n\r|\r|\n)/g, '$1'+ breakTag +'$2');

return $sce.trustAsHtml(msg);

}

});

Bellow i gave you full example and also demo, you can check and test it.
