    <script type="text/javascript">
        var app = angular.module('MyApp', []);
        app.controller("MyController", function ($scope, $http, $window) {
            $"Default.aspx/GetEmployees", { headers: { 'Content-Type': 'application/json'} })
                .then(function (response) {
                    $scope.Employees = eval(;
                    // Default SortColumn.
                    $scope.SortColumn = "EmployeeId";
                    $scope.ReverseSort = false;

                    $scope.SortData = function (column) {
                        $scope.ReverseSort = ($scope.SortColumn == column) ? !$scope.ReverseSort : false;
                        $scope.SortColumn = column;

                    $scope.GetSortClass = function (column) {
                        if ($scope.SortColumn == column) {
                            return $scope.ReverseSort ? 'arrow-down' : 'arrow-up';
                        return '';
                }, function error(response) { alert(response.responseText); });
