AngularJs: Delete Table Row tr on button click

Delete Table row in AngularJs: Here in this article will explain how to remove table row in AngularJS. i.e., how to delete table row in AngularJS. In my previous article have explained how to insert/add new rows dynamically to table in Angularjs. We use the ng-repeat directive to bind HTML table with JSON data. So here we have to move an item from ng-repeat. In short, we have to eliminate element from ng-repeat, and in our case, our HTML element is selected table row TR.

As this is a standard function to have a table with data (add and delete rows dynamically) .i.e insert, update, delete function. Let’s head toward and learn how to remove a row in AngularJS.

Steps to delete table row in AngularJS

  1. Setup: Download and import AngularJS file.
  2. HTML Markup: Add HTML table with dummy data and delete button.
  3. AngularJs: Code to delete table selected row on button click.



AngularJS Delete Table Row , remove item from ng-repeat

 # Setup: Download and import AngularJS file.

You can download AngularJS files from, or you can use Google hosted files. After importing Angularjs file, add Directive ng-app & ng-controller to the body tag.

So now our HTML markup looks like as shown below

 <script src="angularjs/angular.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<body ng-app="myapp" ng-controller="tableController">


# Add HTML table with dummy data and delete button.

Here we have an HTML table with columns ( table heading ) as Name, Gender, City, and Action. Inside Action column, we have our Delete Button which deletes the selected table row. Using ng-repeat directive, we bind data to our HTML table.

Now on the delete button, we added directive ng-click, and with deleteRow() function, selected row gets deleted in angular js. So our HTML markup looks like as written below.

 <script src="angularjs/angular.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<body ng-app="myapp" ng-controller="tableController">
 <table class="table table-stripe" >
 <th> City </th>
 <th> Action </th>
 <tr ng-repeat="emp in employees">
   <td> {{ emp.Name }} </td>
   <td> {{ emp.Gender }} </td>
   <td> {{ emp.City }} </td>
   <td> <button class='btn btn-danger' ng-click="deleteRow($index)">Delete</button> </td>

 var app = angular.module("myapp", []);

 app.controller("tableController", ['$scope', function ($scope) {

 $scope.employees = [{ 'Name': 'Satinder Singh', 'Gender': 'Male', 'City': 'Bombay' },
 { 'Name': 'Leslie Mac', 'Gender': 'Female', 'City': 'Queensland' },
 { 'Name': 'Andrea ely ', 'Gender': 'Female', 'City': 'Rio' },
 { 'Name': 'Amit Sarna', 'Gender': 'Male', 'City': 'Navi Mumbai' },
 { 'Name': 'David Miller', 'Gender': 'Male', 'City': 'Scouthe'}];

   // delete function this remove the selected table row
   $scope.deleteRow= function (i) {
       $scope.employees.splice(i, 1);

 } ]); 


Directive ng-repeat is used to Bind data to our HTML table. Directive ng-click is used to on Delete button which fires deleteRow() function. And with splice remove the selected row. Here we able to delete table row on button click
