I have a step in my code where the application will check on the word entered by the user and compare it to the a word. My issue is that my original code was javascript and now I am not certain how to set it up for AngularJS. I had to ideas but neither one work. This is my option in the my controller.js file

$scope.addGuess = function()
    {
    $scope.guesses.push($scope.guestGuess);
    $scope.guessed = $scope.guesses.length;
    $scope.correctResult = "You have guessed the correct word. Way to go!";
    $scope.incorrectResult = "Please try again!";
        if ($scope.guess == $scope.wordToGuess)
            {
                $scope.result ="You have guessed the correct word";
                alert(result);  
            }
        else if ($scope.guess == $scope.wordToGuess)
            {
                $scope.result = "Please try again!";
                alert(result);  
            }
    $scope.guess = '';
    }
});

Here is the option I was trying to use on my HTML file

<p align="center" ng-if="guestGuess == wordToGuess">{{correctResult}}</p>
<p align="center" ng-if="guestGuess != wordToGuess">{{incorrectResult}}</p>

The idea is that the word will be compared an amount of times, say 4 times, after 4 times the user will lose the game, so eventually I have to add a second condition about how many choices are left.

Thank you guys.

Here is the full code

What exactly is/isn't happening as it should?
I did notice, on line 12 of your controller, where you are checking for the word not matching, you have this:
else if ($scope.guess == $scope.wordToGuess)
but it should be
else if ($scope.guess != $scope.wordToGuess)
As it is your failure message won't display because your second condition is the same as the first.

Actually I figured it out, well mostly. My code is working but the I am having trouble setting so the alert pops up correctly when the user runs out chances.

Here is how I set it up, but how could I change the last condition to only appear after the user runs out of chances. Any suggestion is welcomed. Thanks

if ($scope.guestGuess == $scope.wordToGuess)
    {
        $scope.result = "You have guessed the correct word. Way to go!";
        alert($scope.result);
    }
else if ($scope.guestGuess != $scope.wordToGuess & ($scope.allowed - $scope.guessed) > 0)
    {
        $scope.result = "Please try again!";    
        alert($scope.result);   
    }
else (($scope.allowed - $scope.guessed) < 0)
    {
        $scope.result = "Game over! The word was: ";    
        alert($scope.result + $scope.wordToGuess);  
    }
