How to use multiple ng-view in a single page

we can use only one ng-view in single template but if we want to use multiple ng-view then we can use it by the ng-include, ng-switch or mapping different controllers and templates through the routeProvider.

we want to use multiple ng-view then we can use it by the **ng-include**, **ng-switch** or **mapping different controllers** and templates through the **routeProvider**.

ng-view 

ng-view by this directive angular know that ,this is the place where template will inject.for more details see in angular doc

ng-include

by ngInclude we load template with given path . It Fetches, compiles and includes an external HTML fragment for more details see in angular.doc

ng-switch

By ng-switch we load template conditionally  rest of them same as ngInclude its syntax is like below

<ANY ng-switch="expression">
  <ANY ng-switch-when="matchValue1">...</ANY>
  <ANY ng-switch-when="matchValue2">...</ANY>
  <ANY ng-switch-default>...</ANY>
</ANY>

for more details see in angular.doc

lets take  a example with ngInclude to load multiple files in a single page

First create our main file in which all structure set

index.html(in this our all layout structure set)

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<head>
  <link data-require="bootstrap-css@3.2.0" data-semver="3.2.0" rel="stylesheet" href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.2.0/css/bootstrap.min.css" />
  <script data-require="angular.js@1.2.22" data-semver="1.2.22" src="https://code.angularjs.org/1.2.22/angular.js"></script>
  <script src="https://code.angularjs.org/1.2.20/angular-route.js">
  </script>
  <title>Multiple ng-view in a single template</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
  <script src="script.js"></script>
</head>

<body ng-app="myApp">
  <!--Now it Tells to AngularJS to be active in this portion of the page. In this case the entire document.(due to we apply on body tag ) -->
  <div class="container">
    <!-- apply our controller RouteCtrl-->
    <div class="jumbotron" ng-controller="RouteCtrl">
      <img src="http://tech-blog.maddyzone.com/uploads/2013/10/maddyzone-logo-300x72.png">
      <br/>
      <h1>Multiple ng-view in a single template</h1>

      <!-- by ng-view we create a space in this dynamic content come according to route by ng-view angular know that on which area content will set-->

     <br/><br/>
       <!-- but here we want to insert three template home.html,aboutus.html, contactus.html -->

      <i class="badge">load uirouter.html file in this all html file loaded </i>
       <div ng-view="">
      </div>
      <a href="http://maddyzone.com/javascript/how-use-multiple-ng-view-in-a-single-page" target="_blank">View Post on Maddyzone </a>

    </div>
  </div>
</body>

</html>

now make a file by which will inject in ng-view section

uirouter.html

you can see in this file we use ngInclude 3 times to load these below three files

  1. home.html

  2. aboutus.html

  3. contactus.html

<!-- this file is very important it is include in main file by ng-view-->
<div class="alert alert-info">Now below load multiple views i am from <b class="badge">uirouter.html</b> which is  set by <i class="badge"> ng-view</i> 
</div>

<i class="badge">load home.html file by ng-include </i>
<br/>
<!-- when controller set then in scope home.template home.html set and it will load that template-->
<div class="alert bg-success" ng-include="template.home"></div>

<i class="badge">load aboutus.html file by ng-include </i>
<br/>
<!-- when controller set then in scope about.template aboutus.html set and it will load that template-->
<div class="alert bg-warning" ng-include="template.about"></div>

<i class="badge">load contactus.html file by ng-include</i>
<br/>
<!-- when controller set then in scope contact.template contactus.html set and it will load that template-->
<div class="alert bg-danger" ng-include="template.contact"></div>

Now make our three template files which we want to load

home.html

<!-- content set for home page -->
<div style="font-size: 32px">
  <h1>Home </h1>
  <h2 class="label label-info"></h2>
</div>

aboutus.html

<!-- content set for about page -->
<div style="font-size: 32px">
  <h1>About Us </h1>
  <h2 class="label label-info"></h2>
</div>

contactus.html

<!-- content set for contact page -->
<div style="font-size: 32px">
  <h1>Contact</h1>
  <h2 class="label label-info"></h2>
</div>

Now make our script file in which all module and controller setting exist and here we are mapping our controller with index.html and set routing of template uirouter.html

script.js

//create a module myApp
var myApp = angular.module('myApp', ['ngRoute']);

//Now Configure  our  routing
myApp.config(function($routeProvider, $locationProvider) {
  $routeProvider
  /** set route for the index page and it load uirouter.html
    *in ng-view and activate RouteCtrl
    **/
  .when('/', {
    controller: 'RouteCtrl',
    templateUrl: 'uirouter.html'
  })
  // if not match with any route config then send to home page
  .otherwise({
    redirectTo: '/home'
  });
});

// create the controller and inject Angular's $scope
// set for Route Controller
myApp.controller('RouteCtrl', function($scope) {
  /** create $scope.template **/
  $scope.template = {
    "home": "home.html",
    "about": "aboutus.html",
    "contact": "contactus.html"
  }
  
  $scope.message={
    
     "home":"Message from home template",
     "about":"Message from about template",
     "contact":"Message from contact template"
     
   }

  /** now after this ng-include in uirouter.html set and take template from their respective path **/
});

So overall what will be done 

  1. first we make index.html file in this we set a div with ng-view

  2. make a uirouter file in this three ngInclude div call they load below template file

* home.html


* aboutus.html


* contactus.html
  1.  In JS by routing we set uirouter.html in index.html ng-view section

  2. after load uirouter.html in ng-view it see three things

  •  ng-include=”template.home”  then it check $scope.template.home value which is home.html and it is load by  ngInclude 

  •  ng-include=”template.about”  then it check $scope.template.about value which is aboutus.html and it is load by ngInclude 

  •  ng-include=”template.contact” then it check $scope.template.contact value which is contact.html and it load by  ngInclude
