Don't manipulate DOM in controllers

Don't manipulate DOM in controllers as the HTML hasn't been fully rendered yet

CheckId NG1010401
TypeName DontManipulateDomInControllers
Severity CriticalWarning
Type Controller

You shouldn't be modifying or accessing DOM in AngularJS controllers. When controllers run, the DOM might not be fully rendered yet which could cause your code to run incorrectly. If you need to access the DOM, you should build a component or a directive instead.

Bad practice

angular.module('app').controller('HomeController', function() {
