AngularJS - Trigger when radio button is selected

I searched and tried many ng-xxxx kind of options but couldn't find the one.. I just want to call some function in the controller when radio button is selected.

So it might be similar to following..(Of course, below code is not working)

<input type="radio" ng-model="value" value="one" ng-click="checkStuff()"/>

Is there any way to achieve what I want?


There are at least 2 different methods of invoking functions on radio button selection:

1) Using ng-change directive:

<input type="radio" ng-model="value" value="foo" ng-change='newValue(value)'>

and then, in a controller:

$scope.newValue = function(value) {

Here is the jsFiddle:

2) Watching the model for changes. This doesn't require anything special on the input level:

<input type="radio" ng-model="value" value="foo">

but in a controller one would have:

$scope.$watch('value', function(value) {

And the jsFiddle:

Knowing more about your the use case would help to propose an adequate solution.

Should use ngChange instead of ngClick if trigger source is not from click.

Is the below what you want ? what exactly doesn't work in your case ?

var myApp = angular.module('myApp', []);

function MyCtrl($scope) {
    $scope.value = "none" ;
    $scope.isChecked = false;
    $scope.checkStuff = function () {
        $scope.isChecked = !$scope.isChecked;

<div ng-controller="MyCtrl">
    <input type="radio" ng-model="value" value="one" ng-change="checkStuff()" />
    <span> {{value}} isCheck:{{isChecked}} </span>

In newer versions of angular (I'm using 1.3) you can basically set the model and the value and the double binding do all the work this example works like a charm:

angular.module('radioExample', []).controller('ExampleController', ['$scope', function($scope) {
  $scope.color = {
    name: 'blue'
<script src=""></script>
<body ng-app="radioExample">
<form name="myForm" ng-controller="ExampleController">
  <input type="radio" ng-model="" value="red">  Red <br/>
  <input type="radio" ng-model="" value="green"> Green <br/>
  <input type="radio" ng-model="" value="blue"> Blue <br/>
  <tt>color = {{}}</tt><br/>

Another approach is using Object.defineProperty to set valueas a getter setter property in the controller scope, then each change on the value property will trigger a function specified in the setter:

The HTML file:

<input type="radio" ng-model="value" value="one"/>
<input type="radio" ng-model="value" value="two"/>
<input type="radio" ng-model="value" value="three"/>

The javascript file:

var _value = null;
Object.defineProperty($scope, 'value', {
  get: function () {
    return _value;
  set: function (value) {
    _value = value;

see this plunker for the implementation

i prefer to use ng-value with ng-if, [ng-value] will handle trigger changes

<input type="radio"  name="isStudent" ng-model="isStudent" ng-value="true" />

//to show and hide input by removing it from the DOM, that's make me secure from malicious data

<input type="text" ng-if="isStudent"  name="textForStudent" ng-model="job">

For dynamic values!

<div class="col-md-4" ng-repeat="(k, v) in tiposAcesso">
    <label class="control-label">
        <input type="radio" name="tipoAcesso" ng-model="userLogin.tipoAcesso" value="{{k}}" ng-change="changeTipoAcesso(k)" />              
        <span ng-bind="v"></span>

in controller

$scope.changeTipoAcesso = function(value) {

 <form name="myForm" ng-submit="submitForm()">
   <label data-ng-repeat="i in [1,2,3]"><input type="radio" name="test" ng-model="$parent.radioValue" value="{{i}}"/>{{i}}</label>
   <div>currently selected: {{radioValue}}</div>
   <button type="submit">Submit</button>
