Hi All,
I am getting following error while developing program for upload file in AngularJS

$rootScope.get_request_param.indexOf is not a function

Please reply as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance.
Harish Pathak

The code is as :
$scope.uploadFile = function() {


if($scope.myFile==undefined) {
toaster.pop('fail', '', 'Please select a file');

var payload = new FormData();
payload.append("file", $scope.myFile);
payload.append("taskPerform", "upload_file");
payload.append("issueid", issueid);

headers: { 'Content-Type': undefined},
url: './assets/tools/classes/view_issue_info_­class.php',
method: "POST", 
data: payload,
transformRequest: angular.identity

.success(function(result) {

if(result==1) { 
toaster.pop('success', 'Success', 'File uploaded successfully');


If I comment following line error doesn't appear, the problem is in the following line.
data: payload.

But commenting the above line doesn't upload the file.

Hello, you're talking about AngularJS, and that is a different forum for those questions.

I also don't have enough context to understand your code or problem. If this is not related to the book, you'll probably have better luck trying StackOverflow or other forums. Cheers.
