AngularJS And ASP.NET MVC Movie Library Application - Integration Of IMDB Movie API - Part Five

Hope you have had a chance to look into my last tutorial which talks about the technology stack and creating the UI html page with module and controller, Event Binding with UI elements, and Routing in Angular JS with partial templates. Kindly find the links here:

Moving ahead, in this article, we’ll focus on the integration of live movie API within an existing application.

Kindly open the given URL and register yourself. After registering, you will get a token which we’ll be using in this article to retrieve the information/data from API.

http://api.myapifilms.com/imdb

Once you register yourself, you should receive an email like the given image, with some token value.

value
Open the website with the link, shared above, and fill in the details, as shown below in the following images.

emails
emails

As soon as you click on the submit button, you should receive a response in JSON format, as given below:

response

You may also get XML response for just making amendments either in request or in format dropdown, as shown below:

request

So far so good. We are now able to use this API URL within our application.

Open you solution and find routing.js file to add a new Controller into this, as give below:

solution

  1. routingApp.controller("ApiMovieController", ['$scope''$http''$timeout'function ($scope, $http, $timeout) {  
  2.   
  3.     $scope.SearchMovieByTitle = function () {  
  4.   
  5.         var title = $scope.searchByTitle;  
  6.         alert(title);  
  7.         $http.jsonp("http://api.myapifilms.com/imdb/idIMDB?title=" + title + "&token=5bf98789787hghjg4&format=json&language=en-us&aka=0&business=0&seasons=0&seasonYear=0&technical=0&filter=2&exactFilter=0&limit=5&forceYear=0&trailers=0&movieTrivia=0&awards=0&moviePhotos=0&movieVideos=0&actors=0&biography=0&uniqueName=0&filmography=0&bornAndDead=0&starSign=0&actorActress=0&actorTrivia=0&similarMovies=0&adultSearch=0&goofs=0"es=0&fullSize=0&companyCredits=0&callback=JSON_CALLBACK").success(function (response) {  
  8.             console.log(response);  
  9.             $scope.movies = response.data.movies;  
  10.         })  
  11.       
  12.     }]);  
Kindly, put your token value in the above http request, in order to get the correct result.

Note: If you have noticed, in the above code segment, you have injected a dependency $http and $timeout. For now, only concentrate on the $http and forget about $timeout.

We are almost done with our Controller code part. It's now turn to create the UI to meet our purpose.

Kindly open your solution and add searchMovie.html file, as shown below in the screenshot:

searchMovie

Please copy and paste the following code in searchMovie.html partial template.

Once you paste the above code segment, run an application and click on Search Movie Globally.

Note: Ensure that you had implemented the routing, as shown in the below URL, 

The output will be, as depicted below:

output

Mapping of the above textbox search, using Angular Scope. Whatever value we put into the textbox, ApiMovieController reads that value using scope and passes into http request as Title, as depicted in the screenshot below:

code
Now, search for the movie as I’ve done for The Revenant and Sultan, both.

revenent
sultan
Kindly refer tothe given screen for full fledged movie search operation.

Hope it’ll help you some day. Enjoy Coding.
