00:00 We can make the input required by saying required. Then if there's nothing in here, this field will be marked invalid. Right now there's no way for us to know in our template whether this is invalid, because this is just bound to the value of the input, not the validity of the input.
00:16 To get the validity we need to access the NG model itself in the template. We can do that by creating a reference to the ng-model. That's going to look something like this. I'm going to call this user name ref, then assign that to the ng-model directive.
00:33 In my binding I can actually access the user name ref.valid. Hit Save, and you'll see that now this is valid because it's required. If I could lead everything it's not valid, because this requires something.
00:46 If I type this is true, delete, it's false, because this is a reference to the ng-model it knows if this is valid or invalid.
