AngularJs controller tutorial

AngularJs controller:

AngularJS controllers are used to control the data and flow of AngularJS applications. The ng-controller directive is used to define the AngularJS controller. AngularJS controllers are JavaScript Objects containing attributes or properties and functions. Each AngularJS controller accepts $scope as a parameter which refers to the application or module which is to be controlled by controller.


<div ng-app = "" ng-controller = "controllerName">

Example Explanation:

First include the AngularJS library in the application. The ng-app directive initializes the application. The ng-model directive binds the state of the input text to the respective name variables (student.firstName and student.lastname). The ng-controller=”appController” directive defines the controller. The appController defined as a JavaScript object with $scope as argument. The $scope.student is property of appController object. In $scope.student.fullName we are getting the combined name (firstName + lastName).
Note: We can also store controllers in external files .JS file and refer that file in the html page.
