I am trying to pass url parameters to an angular js page for page setup. I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether I am missing something from these two code samples. The following is some code from a game related program that I am writing. The $routeProvider parameter is providing me null variables.

/*Author: XXX
    Purpose: controller for units aggregate root single page application. */

//units
var units = [];

//declare the module/application
var app = angular.module('UnitModule', ['ngRoute', 'ui.bootstrap']);
app.config(function ($routeProvider) {
    $routeProvider.when('/AddWeapon/:unitId', {
        templateUrl: 'AddWeapon/index.cshtml',
        controller: 'AddWeaponController'
    })
});

//declare the controller
app.controller("AddWeaponController", ['$scope', '$routeParams', function ($scope, $routeParams, $http, $q, $rootScope, $route) {
    $scope.ApiControllerName = "Units";
    $scope.ApiDomainName = "http://localhost";
    $scope.ApiPortNumber = "59971";
    $scope.ApiRoutePrefix = "api";

    $scope.oneAtATime = true;

    $scope.unit = {
        Weapons: []
    };

    $scope.Weapon = {
        WeaponName: "",
        Type: "",
        ArmourPenetration: 0,
        Abilities: "-"
    }

    $scope.GetUrl = function (funcName, args) {
        var url = $scope.ApiDomainName + ":"
            + $scope.ApiPortNumber
            + "/" + $scope.ApiRoutePrefix + "/"
            + $scope.ApiControllerName;

        if (funcName)
            url += "/" + funcName;

        if (!Array.isArray(args))
            throw "Argument is not an array... ";

        //build argument list
        if (args && args.length > 0)
            angular.forEach(args, function (value, key) {
                url += "/" + value;
            });

        return url;
    }//end method

    $scope.GetSelfUrl = function (htmlFile) {
        var domainName = 'http://localhost';
        var portNum = 49752;
        var url = domainName + ":"
            + portNum;

        if (!htmlFile.startsWith("/"))
            url += "/";

        url += htmlFile;

        return url;
    }//end method

    $scope.Get = function (id) {
        var url = $scope.GetUrl('', [id]);
        return $http.get(url);
    }//end method

    $scope.Post = function (unit) {
        return $http.post($scope.GetUrl('', []),
            {
                data: { unit: unit }
            }
        );
    }//end method

    $scope.SaveUnit = function () {
        var promise = $scope.Post($scope.unit);
        promise.then(function (response) {

                alert("Unit successfully submitted. ");
            else
                alert("Error occurred on submission code: " + response.status);
        })
        .catch(function () {
            alert("Error occurred on submission. ");
        });
    }//end method

    $scope.AddWeapon = function () {
        //add weapon to the current unit
        $scope.unit.Weapons.push($scope.Weapon);

        //clear text boxes
        $scope.strength = 0;
        $scope.strengthNumTimes = 0;
        $scope.damage = 0;
        $scope.diceHighVal = 0;
        $scope.isMelee = false;
        $scope.range = 0;

        //clear selection
        $scope.Weapon = {

        };
    }//end method

    $scope.RemoveWeapon = function (weapon) {

        var index = $scope.unit.Weapons.indexOf(weapon);

I believe that I have the answer to my own question. Looks like not many of you do angular js. The most profound thing I learned from this is that we are using multiple views in all the online examples, with one view, "the home view" being the initial drop page. This was really really important to figuring anything out. I am not completely done with my application, but I think this is an appropriate response, and my code compiles. I am also doing a uib modal, so ignore anything that is ui bootstrap.

angular.module('UnitModule', [
    'UnitModule.UnitsController',
    'UnitModule.AddWeaponController',
])
.config(['$routeProvider', '$locationProvider', function ($routeProvider, $locationProvider) {
    $routeProvider.when('/', {
        templateUrl: '/Units',
        controller: 'Units',
    });
    $routeProvider.when('/AddWeapon/:unitId', {
        templateUrl: '/Home/AddWeapon',
        controller: 'AddWeapon',
    });
    $routeProvider.otherwise({
        redirectTo: '/'
    });
}]);

//Units controller
angular.module('UnitModule.UnitsController', ['ngRoute', 'ui.bootstrap'])
    .controller('Units', function ($scope, $http, $routeParams, $q, $rootScope, $route, $uibModal) {

});

angular.module('UnitModule.AddWeaponController', ['ngRoute'])
    .controller('AddWeapon', function ($scope, $http, $routeParams) {
        $scope.unitId = $routeParams.unitId;

}//end class

//additionally you need an AddWeapon() method that returns a partial view
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Mvc;

using TroopTransportGeneticAlgorithim.Repositories;
using TroopTransportGeneticAlgorithim.Models;

namespace TroopTransportOptimizer.Controllers {
    public class UnitsController : Controller {
        // GET: Units
        public ActionResult Index() {

            return View();
        }//end method

        public ActionResult AddWeapon() {
            return PartialView();
        }

    }//end class

}//end namespace

//additionally you need at least two files/views under the Units folder
    -index.cshtml
    -AddWeapon.cshtml
