Angularjs autocomplete from $http request

Published on Author Code Father

An autocomplete directive and uploaded it to GitHub. It should also be able to handle data from an HTTP-Request.

Here’s the demo: http://justgoscha.github.io/allmighty-autocomplete/ And here the documentation and repository: https://github.com/JustGoscha/allmighty-autocomplete

So basically you have to return a promise when you want to get data from an HTTP request, that gets resolved when the data is loaded. Therefore you have to inject the $qservice/directive/controller where you issue your HTTP Request.

Example:

function getMyHttpData(){
  var deferred = $q.defer();
  $http.jsonp(request).success(function(data){
    // the promise gets resolved with the data from HTTP
    deferred.resolve(data);
  });
  // return the promise
  return deferred.promise;
}
