Angular bootstrap modal causing strict-di error, not sure why

Weird problem, using Angular UI bootstrap modal I have no issues at all with Angular 1.3 beta 16, however if I enable ng-strict-di mode I get the following error:

Error: [$injector:strictdi] function($scope, $modalInstance) is not using explicit annotation and cannot be invoked in strict mode$injector/strictdi?p0=function(%24scope%2C%20xmodalInstance)

at Scope.$digest (http://localhost:3000/vendor/angular.js:12609:31)

The weird thing is this is not in a directive or service, it's just the script behind one of my pages. I know I'm making a controller there but...well I'm not sure at this point. Here is the code that generated the error:


var Prompt = function(title, prompt) {
var modalInstance = ${
template: '<div class="modal-header"><h3 class="modal-title">' + title + '</h3></div><div class="modal-body"><p>' + prompt + '</p></div><div class="modal-footer"><button class="btn btn-primary" ng-click="ok()">OK</button><button class="btn btn-warning" ng-click="cancel()">Cancel</button></div>',
controller: ModalInstanceCtrl,
size: 'sm'


modalInstance.result.then(function(result) {
console.log('Modal OK');
}, function() {
console.log('Modal dismissed');

var ModalInstanceCtrl = function($scope, $modalInstance) {
$scope.ok = function() {
$scope.cancel = function() {

//end of modal

//call it immediately to see the error
Prompt('myTitle', 'myMessage');

I'm not sure how or why I'm getting the error. If I turn off strict-di it works perfectly. Any ideas?


You need to manually advertise your dependencies for the controller since you have ng-strict-di enabled.

function ModalInstanceCtrl ($scope, $modalInstance) { //or var ModalInstanceCtrl = function(...

  $scope.ok = function () {

  $scope.cancel = function () {


ModalInstanceCtrl.$inject = ['$scope', '$modalInstance'];
