validate natural input number with ngpattern

Issue

I use ng-pattern="/0-9/" to set price_field do not accept decimal number. But when I input natural number (from 0 to 9999999),ng-show gets activated with Not valid number!.

Where did I go wrong?. Please help.

<form name="myform" data-ng-submit="create()">
        <input type="number"
               name="price_field"
               data-ng-model="price"
               require
               ng-pattern="/0-9/">
        <span  ng-show="myform.price_field.$error.pattern">Not valid number!</span>
        <input type="submit" class="btn">
</form>

Solution

The problem is that your REGX pattern will only match the input “0-9”.

To meet your requirement (0-9999999), you should rewrite your regx pattern:

ng-pattern="/^[0-9]{1,7}$/"

My example:

HTML:

<div ng-app ng-controller="formCtrl">
  <form name="myForm" ng-submit="onSubmit()">
    <input type="number" ng-model="price" name="price_field" 
           ng-pattern="/^[0-9]{1,7}$/" required>
    <span ng-show="myForm.price_field.$error.pattern">Not a valid number!</span>
    <span ng-show="myForm.price_field.$error.required">This field is required!</span>
    <input type="submit" value="submit"/>
  </form>
</div>

JS:

function formCtrl($scope){
  $scope.onSubmit = function(){
    alert("form submitted");
  }
}

Here is a jsFiddle demo.
