angularjsHow can I use the `finally` method in AngularJS HTTP requests?

The finally method is a way to execute code after an AngularJS HTTP request has been completed, regardless of whether the request was successful or not. It is a great way to handle any necessary clean-up tasks or to alert the user of the status of the request. Here is an example of how to use the finally method in an AngularJS HTTP request:

  .then(function(response) {
    // handle success
  }, function(response) {
    // handle error
  .finally(function() {
    console.log('Request completed!');

Output example

Request completed!

The code above first makes an HTTP request to the specified URL. Then, it handles the response, either as a success or an error. Finally, it runs the finally block, which in this case logs a message to the console.

Code explanation

  • $http.get('/someUrl'): This is the AngularJS HTTP request.
  • .then(function(response) {...}, function(response) {...}): This handles the response, either as success or error.
  • .finally(function() {...}): This is the finally block, which runs after the response has been handled.
