HTML Question

Return undefined answer from multer

I am using multer in my nodejs application for uploading files. And angularjs for the front end part. Once I click upload image, on the console I am getting undefined answer. Can any one help me to solve the problem.
Here I am pasting the code.

var express = require('express');
var app = express();
var http = require('http').Server(app);
var io = require('')(http);
var bodyParser = require('body-parser');
var path = require('path');
var fs = require('fs');
var spawn = require('child_process').spawn;

var multer = require('multer');
var storage = multer.diskStorage({

var upload = multer({storage: storage});

app.set('views', __dirname + '/views');

var urlencodedParser = bodyParser.urlencoded({ extended: true });


res.render('index',{ title: 'Upload image' });
});'/loadImage',upload.any(),function(req, res) {
console.log("Inside post");
console.log('listening on 8080');

And here is my app.js angularjs code

var app = angular.module('app',['ui.router','ui.bootstrap','ngAnimate']);
app.controller('Ctrl',function ($scope,$http){
$scope.loadImage = function(){
console.log('Posted successfully');

And my HTML code:

<form ng-submit="loadImage()" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="file" name="file" multiple />
<input type="submit" value="Upload Image" name="submit" />

On the console I am getting Undefined and Inside post. And on the browser console I am getting posted successfully Can any one please help me to solve this. Instead of undefined I should get loaded file information.

This how i used Multer to upload an image

var multer = require('multer');

exports.loadImage = function (req, res) {
var upload = multer({
        inMemory: true,
        limits: {fileSize: 1024 * 1024 }

upload(req, res, function (uploadError) {
    if (uploadError) {
        return res.status(400).send({ message: 'errorUploadingPicture' });
    else {
        var profileImage = 'No data uploaded';
        // this is where the photo data is
        if (req.file && req.file.buffer) {
            profileImage = req.file.buffer;
        return res.json(profileImage );
