Angular and Form Elements - part 4

In Angular and Form Elements - part 3 we have signal invalid fields via CSS classes. Further, we will fine grained the validation process by adding textual feedback:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<head lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <script src="../angular/angular.min.js"></script>
    <link href="../bootstrap/css/bootstrap.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
    <link href="../bootstrap/css/bootstrap-theme.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
        angular.module("atpModule", [])
                .controller("atpCtrl", function ($scope) {
                    $scope.addNewPlayer = function (newPlayer) {
                        if (angular.isDefined(newPlayer)) {
                               email:, rank: $scope.atp.length + 1});
        form {
            background-color: coral;

        form {
            background-color: lightcyan;

        span.error {
            color: red;
<div ng-app="atpModule" ng-controller="atpCtrl" ng-init="atp=[
