AngularJS Question

Submitting angular form to a php file

I'm trying to submit the form below to a php file called time.php, but its not working, even when I check the console there are no errors, its just clear. I'm not sure where I may be going wrong.

<form ng-controller="testCtrl" class="customform" data-ng-init="init()">
<div class="s-10 1-10">
<input ng-model="firstName" pattern=".{2,100}" title="2 to 100 Characters" placeholder="First Name" type="text" required />
</div>
<div class="s-10 1-10">
<input ng-model="lastName" pattern=".{5,255}" title="5 to 255 Characters" placeholder="Last Name" type="text" required />
</div>
<div class="s-12 l-10"><input ng-model="acNumber" placeholder="A/C Number" title="Employee Number, i.e c1234567" type="text" required /></div>

<div class="s-12 l-10">

<div class="s-4"><button type="submit" id="submit" class="btn-custom btn btn-large btn-block" ng-click="sendRequest()">Request</button></div>








Please note: ng-app="app" is located in the header:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en-US" ng-app="app">




The following code is the controller, and I believe the issue lies somewhere in here:

var app = angular.module('app', []);
app.controller('testCtrl', ['$scope', '$http', function($scope, $http) {

$scope.sendRequest = function(){
var data= {
'firstName' :$scope.firstName,
'lastName' :$scope.lastName,
'acNumber' :$scope.acNumber,
'email' :$scope.email,
'selectedRequestType' :$scope.selectedRequestType,
'selectedWorkRequestType' :$scope.selectedWorkRequestType,
'selectedOutput' :$scope.selectedOutput,
'selectedFrequency' : $scope.selectedFrequency,
'selectedWeekly' : $scope.selectedWeekly,
'selectedFile' : $scope.selectedFile,
'selectedLibrary' : $scope.selectedLibrary,
'selectedPlatformOutput' : $scope.selectedPlatformOutput,
'productName' : $scope.productName
};


$http({
url: "time.php",
method: "POST",
headers: {'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'},
data: data
}).success(function(data, status, headers, config) {
//Success code
}).error(function(xhr) {
//Failure code
console.log(data);
console.log(xhr.responseText);
});

return false;
// $window.location.href ='/time.php';

};

$scope.init = function (){
$scope.workRequestType = 'test';
$scope.requestTypes = [
{'type':'Work Request'},
{'type': 'Incident'}
];
$scope.workRequestTypes = [
{'type': 'Amendments to existing code'},
{'type': 'Code Automation'},
{'type': 'New file(s) from source'}
];
$scope.outputTypes = [
{'type': 'SAS'},
{'type':'SAP IQ'},
{'type': 'Hadoop'}
];
$scope.frequencies = [
{'type' : 'Daily'},
{'type': 'Monthly'},
{'type': 'Weekly'}
];
$scope.weeklies = [
{'type': 'Monday'},
{'type':'Tuesday'},
{'type': 'Wednesday'},
{'type':'Thursday'},
{'type':'Friday'},
{'type':'Saturday'},
{'type':'Sunday'}
];
$scope.files = [
{'type': 'New File(s)'},
{'type': 'Add to existing file received'}
];
$scope.libraries = [
{'type':'Yes'},
{'type':'No'}
];
$scope.platformOutputs = [
{'type': 'SAS'},
{'type':'SAP IQ'},
{'type': 'Hadoop'}
];
$scope.firstName= null;
$scope.lastName= null;
$scope.acNumber= null;
$scope.email= null;
$scope.selectedRequestType= null;
$scope.selectedWorkRequestType= null;
$scope.selectedOutput= null;
$scope.sasLibraryName = null;
$scope.sasIQtext = null;
$scope.selectedFrequency = null;
$scope.selectedWeekly = null;
$scope.selectedFile = null;
$scope.selectedLibrary = null;
$scope.selectedPlatformOutput = null;
$scope.productName = null;
};
}]);


I'm still learning Angular, so I may have made a simple error

Answer

If the HTTP POST request is taking place, but PHP is not able to access the POST variables, try converting the data from an object to a string.

$http({
        url: "time.php",
        method: "POST",
        headers: {'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'},
        data: $httpParamSerializerJQLike(data),
    })

The string should look like: firstName=John&acNumber=1234

Pass the $httpParamSerializerJQLike service into your controller with:

app.controller('testCtrl', ['$scope', '$http', '$httpParamSerializerJQLike', function($scope, $http, $httpParamSerializerJQLike) {
