If your ng-table is not calling the get data function, there could be several reasons for this issue. Below are some common causes and troubleshooting steps to resolve it:

  1. Check Controller and ngTable Configuration: Ensure that you have set up your controller and ngTable configuration correctly. Make sure you are injecting the necessary dependencies and initializing the ngTableParams object properly.

  2. ngTableParams Configuration: Verify that you have provided the correct configuration options when creating the ngTableParams object. Double-check the getData function, settings object, and any other relevant configuration properties.

  3. Missing ngTable Directive: Ensure that you have included the ngTable directive in your template. Without this directive, the ngTable functionality won't be triggered.

  4. Scope Changes Not Detected: If your getData function depends on data that changes asynchronously (e.g., through an API call), make sure that Angular's two-way data binding is working correctly to detect those changes. If the data is not part of Angular's digest cycle, the table might not update automatically.

  5. Async Data Loading: If your getData function relies on asynchronous data loading (e.g., AJAX calls), make sure that you are resolving the promises correctly. ngTable expects the getData function to return a promise that resolves to the data.

  6. Debugging ngTableParams: Add console.log statements or use browser developer tools to inspect the ngTableParams object and see if it has the correct configuration, data, and any error messages.

  7. Error Handling: Check the console for any error messages that might indicate the root cause of the problem. Address any errors that you find.

  8. Pagination Configuration: If you are using pagination, ensure that the total property in the ngTableParams configuration is correctly set to the total number of records available. This is important for proper pagination behavior.

  9. ngTable's track Functionality: If you are using the track functionality of ngTable, make sure you have configured it correctly to track your data.

  10. Server-Side Pagination and Sorting: If you are using server-side pagination and sorting, ensure that your server-side implementation is correctly handling the requests and returning the data in the expected format.

  11. ngTable Version Compatibility: Ensure that you are using a compatible version of ngTable with your Angular version and any other dependencies.

  12. Minimal Working Example (MWE): If the issue persists, consider creating a minimal working example (MWE) of your ngTable implementation and share it with the ngTable community or relevant forums for further assistance.

By carefully reviewing your ngTable configuration, checking for errors, and ensuring proper data loading, you should be able to resolve the issue with ngTable not calling the get data function.
