AngularJS Question

ASP.NET WebAPI and Angular POST

I have a WebAPI controller

public class MyController : ApiController
public SomeResult MyAction(string name, string message)
return SomeResult.???;

I have an angular controller calling this method

.post("/api/My/MyAction", { name: "bob", message: "hello" })
.then(function(xhr) { ... }, function(xhr) { ... });

I get this result

Server Error in '/' Application.

The resource cannot be found.

What did I do wrong?

P.S. It's not the URL...It works when I use
and append the parameters to the query string.


For more than one attribute for post requests, you can use [FromBody] in your controller and make a ViewModel class. Example:

        public HttpResponseMessage UpdateNumber([FromBody]UpdateNumberViewModel model)
           //To do business
            return Request.CreateResponse(HttpStatusCode.OK);


public class UpdateViewModel
        public int Id{ get; set; }
        public string Title{ get; set; }



var model = {                    
                    Id: 1,
                    Title: 'Vai filhão'

    $'/api/controller/updateNumber/',model).then(function () { alert("OK"); }, function () {alert("something wrong"); });
