AngularJS Question

ng-options and array from controller

I am new to angular js. I want to show list from controller in drop down. The array is controller variable as defined below:

(function(angular) {
'use strict';
angular.module('staticSelect', [])
.controller('ExampleController', ['$scope', function($scope) {
self = this;
self.options = [
{id: 1, label: "Item 1"},
{id: 2, label: "Item 2"},
{id: 3, label: "Item 3"}

$ = {
singleSelect: null,
multipleSelect: [],
option1: 'option-1',

$scope.forceUnknownOption = function() {
$ = 'nonsense';

Now, I want to show this options array in drop down. The script is as below:

<body ng-app="staticSelect">
<div ng-controller="ExampleController as ctrl">
<form name="myForm">
<label for="singleSelect"> Single select: </label><br>
<select name="singleSelect" ng-model="data.singleSelect" ng-options=" as ctrl.option.label for ctrl.option in ctrl.options">
<tt>selected = {{data.singleSelect}}</tt><br/>

If options array is in $scope then this works fine. What am I doing wrong here while using controller variable?


Here is how your ng-options attribute should looks like:

ng-options=" as option.label for option in ctrl.options"
