I'm getting an error that I've Googled a bunch and I'm getting nowhere. Here's the code:

VF Page:

<apex:page controller="registrationController" showHeader="false" sidebar="false" standardStylesheets="false" docType="html-5.0" >
    <apex:remoteObjectModel name="Volunteer_Visit__c" jsShorthand="VisitGateway" fields="Id,Name"></apex:remoteObjectModel>
    <apex:remoteObjectModel name="Volunteer_Registration__c" jsShorthand="RegGateway" fields="Id,Name,Contact_Org_Name__c,Contact_First_Name__c,Con_Email__c,Schedule_Start_Time__c,Org_ID__c,Volunteer_Visit__c,Contact__c,Walk_in__c,Badge_Name__c,Num_of_Hours__c"></apex:remoteObjectModel>

    <!-- Custom AppJS here and controllers found in the registrationappstatic Static Resource -->

    <apex:includeScript value="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.4/js/bootstrap.min.js"/>

Here's app.js


.module('registrationKiosk', ['ngRoute'])

.constant('resourceUrl', '/resource/'+Date.now()+'/registrationappstatic/registrationapp/app')

.config(['$routeProvider', 'resourceUrl', function($routeProvider, resourceUrl) {
        .when('/', {
            templateUrl:  resourceUrl+'/view1.html'
        .when('/volunteer-select', {
            templateUrl:  resourceUrl+'/view2.html',
            controller: 'RegCtrl'
        .when('/preregister', {
           templateUrl:  resourceUrl+'/view3.html',
           controller: 'RegCtrl'
            redirectTo: "/"
.service('visitStorage', SObjectModel.VisitGateway);

Note the service bit - this is where I think things are going awry. Here's how I set up the one controller I have:

.controller("RegCtrl", ["$scope", "$q", "visitStorage", function($scope, $q, visitStorage) {

So I have all this set up and I'm running into the unknown provider error for this service. What am I doing wrong? If I'm not showing enough code - please let me know. I'm also getting this error:

Uncaught ReferenceError: SObjectModel is not defined

I assume it's related to the service - but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.


  • It's possible that your app.js is loading before the remote objects are available. This in turn is causing the provider error since the service doesn't get created because of the reference error. Can you show me where you load app.js in your page?

Try moving all your scripts to the bottom of your body tag using <script src="{!URLFOR($Resource...)}"/> instead of the apex:includescript. There's an example here that does this in an Angular+RemoteObject application like yours.

    Worked like a charm! Do you mind explaining why I have to do that? Is it just the quirkiness of VF?

  • Happy to help :) The reason is that HTML normally loads everything it finds sequentially from top to bottom. I'm not entirely clear on the specifics, but somehow (maybe the VF includescript places stuff wrong, maybe the <head> tag runs first by default) the scripts were being inserted before wherever VF defined the remoteobjects. You'd have to look at the page source to see the exact order of things. Placing them at the bottom of the body tag is just a convention for including scripts because it ensures that all (most) of your page will be ready by the time your scripts execute.
