AngularJS Controller

Introduction

AngularJS Controllers follows MVC ( Model-View-Controller ) pattern. In the MVC pattern in AngularJS, a Controller controls the interaction between the View and Model. View handles the layout while the Model handles business logic.

A Controller is defined using ng-controller in an AngularJS application. AgnularJS applications depend on Controller which controls the flow of data. Each Controller accepts $Scope as a parameter which refers to the application or module that the Controller is needed to control.
