AngularJS Question

AngularJS promise is not resolved multiple times using $interval

Surprised to see why the angularjs promise is not resolved multiple times using

$interval
service. Below is my code. The variable
i
is incremented multiple times, however the promise is resolved only once.

var app = angular.module('plunker', []);
app.controller('MainCtrl', function($scope, myService) {
myService.then(function(result) {
$scope.i = result;
});
});
app.factory('myService', function($interval, $q) {
var deferred = $q.defer();
var i = 0;
$interval(function() {
i += 1;
deferred.resolve(i);
}, 2000);
return deferred.promise;
});


Plunker

Answer

Using AngularJS, you can use the notify feature of $q (https://docs.angularjs.org/api/ng/service/$q) instead of resolve:

var app = angular.module('plunker', []);
app.controller('MainCtrl', function($scope, myService) {
    // Notice that the third callback is for notify
    myService.then(null, null, function(result) {
        $scope.i = result;
    });
});
app.factory('myService', function($interval, $q) {
    var deferred = $q.defer();
    var i = 0;
    $interval(function() {
        i += 1;
        deferred.notify(i);
    }, 2000);
    return deferred.promise;
});

You might want to add a $interval.cancel() to stop the loop at some point/condition (https://docs.angularjs.org/api/ng/service/$interval).
