Client side validation with submit button in header-bar

It is almost universal UX design standard to put submit buttons in the header. And Angularjs has some great html5 client side validation tools. But Angular requires the submit button to be within the form in order to take advantage of these html5 validation tools. So if the button is up in the header, we loose these validation tools.

Is there a way to have the button in the header and use these nice client side validation tools?

I would love to have this too.

i need it too… anyone, please ? :cry:

You can do this now using the example in this question: Using right-button in the ion-header-bar to submit a form
