Angular and Form Elements - part 6

Sometimes you may find annoying the validation implementation from Angular and Form Elements - part 5 and you want a validation process that takes action after the submit button is pressed. You can modify the example from Angular and Form Elements - part 5 like this:

<!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) {
                    $scope.addNewPlayer = function (newPlayer) {
                        if (atpForm.$valid) {
                            if (angular.isDefined(newPlayer)) {
                                   email:, rank: $scope.atp.length + 1});
                        } else {
                            $scope.validationStatus = true;
                    $scope.getErrorMessage = function (error) {
                        if (angular.isDefined(error)) {
                            if (error.required) {
                                return "Please provide a value";
                            } else if ( {
                                return "Please provide a valid e-mail address";
        span.error {
            color: red;
