  1. ng-switch
  2. ng-switch-when
  3. ng-switch-default

The ng-switch directive is added to our primary HTML element (main div tag) and set the expression that acts as a selection condition.

The ng-switch-when directive is attached to each child element, which will display only if the expression is true, else it would be removed from DOM.

The ng-switch-default directive by its named indicate that this is display as default if no expression is matched.

Example: using ng-switch directives in Angularjs.

Here in this example, we will display matched section based on our drop-down selection. First, we add a dropdown list with values as fruit, animal, vehicle. Next, we add some data to each section. Final HTML markup looks like as written below.

<select ng-model="myVar">
  <option value="fruit">Fruit
  <option value="animal">Animal
  <option value="vehicle">Vehicle

<div ng-switch="myVar">
  <div ng-switch-when="fruit">
  <div ng-switch-when="animal">
  <div ng-switch-when="vehicle">
  <div ng-switch-default>
        <p>Select something from the dropdown, to switch the content of specific DIV.</p>
