AngularJS Question

Reloading current state - refresh data

I'm using Angular UI Router and would like to reload the current state and refresh all data / re-run the controllers for the current state and it's parent.

I have 3 state levels: directory.organisations.details

directory.organisations contains a table with a list of organisations. Clicking on an item in the table loads directory.organisations.details with $StateParams passing the ID of the item. So in the details state I load the details for this item, edit them and then save data. All fine so far.

Now I need to reload this state and refresh all the data.

I have tried:

$state.transitionTo('directory.organisations');


Which goes to the parent state but doesn't reload the controller, I guess because the path hasn't changed. Ideally I just want to stay in the directory.organisations.details state and refresh all data in the parent too.

I have also tried:

$state.reload()


I have seen this on the API WIKI for $state.reload "(bug with controllers reinstantiating right now, fixing soon)."

Any help would be appreciated?

Answer

This solution works in AngularJS V.1.2.2:

$state.transitionTo($state.current, $stateParams, {
    reload: true,
    inherit: false,
    notify: true
});
