Custom Prompt With DatePicker Directive in AngularJS

Introduction

Due to design constraints there is a slight possibility of something so you are advised not to use the Angular UI model to display a prompt box in your Angular web application, however the following code helps you to create a custom prompt with dataepicker intgration in it with basic validation. It's a custom prompt, you may change it to a confirmation box as needed.

  12.                     });  
  13.                 };  
  14.                 var options = {

  32.         };  
  33.         $scope.hidePrompt = function () {  
  34.             $scope.EndDate = "";  
  35.             $scope.errorMessage = false;  
  36.             $scope.showPopup = false;  
  37.         };  
  38.         $scope.deleteRecord = function() {  
  39.             var endDate = $scope.EndDate != null ? new Date($scope.EndDate) : "Invalid Date";  
  40.             if (endDate == "Invalid Date") {  
  41.                 $scope.errorMessage = true;  
  42.                 return;  
  43.             }  
  44.             $scope.hidePrompt();  
  45.         };  
  46.     }); 

Points of Interest

Basic validation has been implemented, you may extend it as needed. The value of the selected date will be available in the scope within the model name "EndDate".

The output will be as mentioned in the images below.
