uppercase filter

Add uppercase filter to an expression using pipe character. Here we've added uppercase filter to print student name in all capital letters.

Enter first name:<input type = "text" ng-model = "student.firstName">
Enter last name: <input type = "text" ng-model = "student.lastName">
Name in Upper Case: {{student.fullName() | uppercase}}

lowercase filter

Add lowercase filter to an expression using pipe character. Here we've added lowercase filter to print student name in all lowercase letters.

Enter first name:<input type = "text" ng-model = "student.firstName">
Enter last name: <input type = "text" ng-model = "student.lastName">
Name in Lower Case: {{student.fullName() | lowercase}}

currency filter

Add currency filter to an expression returning number using pipe character. Here we've added currency filter to print fees using currency format.

Enter fees: <input type = "text" ng-model = "student.fees">
fees: {{student.fees | currency}}

filter filter

To display only required subjects, we've used subjectName as filter.

Enter subject: <input type = "text" ng-model = "subjectName">
Subject:
<ul>
  <li ng-repeat = "subject in student.subjects | filter: subjectName">
     {{ subject.name + ', marks:' + subject.marks }}
  </li>
</ul>

orderby filter

To order subjects by marks, we've used orderBy marks.

Subject:
<ul>
  <li ng-repeat = "subject in student.subjects | orderBy:'marks'">
     {{ subject.name + ', marks:' + subject.marks }}
  </li>
</ul>
