  30. <script src="js/angular.js"></script>
  31. <script src="js/script.js"></script>
  32. </body>
  33. </html>

This code contains the main function of the application. This code will change the current template when the use select an option in the dropbox. To do this just copy and write these block of codes as shown below inside the text editor and save it as shown below.

Note: Make sure you save this file inside the js directory to make the application work.

  1. var app = angular.module("myModule", [])
  2. .controller("myController", function($scope){
  3. var employees = [
  4. {name: "Tony Stark", age: "42", address: "New York"},
  5. {name: "Steve Rogers", age: "36", address: "Nazi"},
