How to reload or re-render the entire page using AngularJS

After rendering the entire page based on several user contexts and having made several $http requests, I want the user to be able to switch contexts and re-render everything again (resending all $http requests, etc). If I just redirect the user somewhere else, things work properly:

$scope.on_impersonate_success = function(response) {
  //$window.location.reload(); // This cancels any current request
  $location.path('/'); // This works as expected, if path != current_path
};

$scope.impersonate = function(username) {
  return auth.impersonate(username)
    .then($scope.on_impersonate_success, $scope.on_auth_failed);
};

If I use $window.location.reload(), then some of the $http requests on auth.impersonate(username) that are waiting for a response get cancelled, so I can't use that. Also, the hack $location.path($location.path()) doesn't work either (nothing happens).

Is there another way to re-render the page without manually issuing all requests again?

Answer

For the record, to force angular to re-render the current page, you can use:

$route.reload();

According to AngularJS documentation:

Causes $route service to reload the current route even if $location hasn't changed.

As a result of that, ngView creates new scope, reinstantiates the controller.

Answer

$route.reload() will reinitialise the controllers but not the services. If you want to reset the whole state of your application you can use:

$window.location.reload();

This is a standard DOM method which you can access injecting the $window service.

If you want to be sure to reload the page from the server, for example when you are using Django or another web framework and you want a fresh server side render, pass true as a parameter to reload, as explained in the docs. Since that requires interaction with the server, it will be slower so do it only if necessary

Angular 2

The above applies to Angular 1. I am not using Angular 2, looks like the services are different there, there is Router, Location, and the DOCUMENT. I did not test different behaviors there

Answer

For reloading the page for a given route path :-

$location.path('/path1/path2');
$route.reload();
Answer

Well maybe you forgot to add "$route" when declaring the dependencies of your Controller:

app.controller('NameCtrl', ['$scope','$route', function($scope,$route) {   
   // $route.reload(); Then this should work fine.
}]);
Answer

Just to reload everything , use window.location.reload(); with angularjs

Check out working example

HTML

<div ng-controller="MyCtrl">  
<button  ng-click="reloadPage();">Reset</button>
</div>

angularJS

var myApp = angular.module('myApp',[]);

function MyCtrl($scope) {
    $scope.reloadPage = function(){window.location.reload();}
}

If you want to refresh the controller while refreshing any services you are using, you can use this solution:

  • Inject $state

i.e.

app.controller('myCtrl',['$scope','MyService','$state', function($scope,MyService,$state) {

    //At the point where you want to refresh the controller including MyServices

    $state.reload();

    //OR:

    $state.go($state.current, {}, {reload: true});
}

This will refresh the controller and the HTML as well you can call it Refresh or Re-Render.

Answer

Before Angular 2 ( AngularJs )

Through route

$route.reload();

If you want reload whole Application

$window.location.reload();

Angular 2+

import { Location } from '@angular/common';

constructor(private location: Location) {}

ngOnInit() {  }

load() {
    this.location.reload()
}

Or

constructor(private location: Location) {}

ngOnInit() {  }

Methods (){
    this.ngOnInit();
}

Easiest solution I figured was,

add '/' to the route that want to be reloaded every time when coming back.

eg:

instead of the following

$routeProvider
  .when('/About', {
    templateUrl: 'about.html',
    controller: 'AboutCtrl'
  })

use,

$routeProvider
  .when('/About/', { //notice the '/' at the end 
    templateUrl: 'about.html',
    controller: 'AboutCtrl'
  })
Answer

Try one of the following:

$route.reload(); // don't forget to inject $route in your controller
$window.location.reload();
location.reload();

I got this working code for removing cache and reloading the page

View

        <a class="btn" ng-click="reload()">
            <i class="icon-reload"></i> 
        </a>

Controller

Injectors: $scope,$state,$stateParams,$templateCache

       $scope.reload = function() { // To Reload anypage
            $templateCache.removeAll();     
            $state.transitionTo($state.current, $stateParams, { reload: true, inherit: true, notify: true });
        };

I've had a hard fight with this problem for months, and the only solution that worked for me is this:

var landingUrl = "http://www.ytopic.es"; //URL complete
$window.location.href = landingUrl;
Answer

If you are using angular ui-router this will be the best solution.

$scope.myLoadingFunction = function() {
    $state.reload();
};
Answer

Use the following code without intimate reload notification to the user. It will render the page

var currentPageTemplate = $route.current.templateUrl;
$templateCache.remove(currentPageTemplate);
$window.location.reload();
