Add Row – Concepts

Following are some of key points to be noted in relation with adding a row in an Angular 2 app.

  • Define a component, AddRowComponent and bootstrap this component. Take a look at the code below on how to bootstrap the component.
  • Define a selector add-rows with AddRowComponent and access the AddRowComponent using the selector <add-rows>loading…</add-rows>
  • Define an array of objects in which the names will be added as an object such as {name: ‘Some Name’}.
  • Access the name one by one using *ngFor=”#row of rows” code. Note that *ngFor is used to represent structural directive.
  • Use (click) event binding to invoke addRow method for adding the object to the existing array.


Add Row – Code Sample
import {Component, View} from 'angular2/core';
import {bootstrap} from 'angular2/platform/browser';

  selector: 'add-rows'
  template: `
    <h1>Angular 2 - Add Row Example</h1>
    <form class="form-group">
      <div class="row">
        <div class="col-md-4">
          <input type="text" [(ngModel)]="name" class="form-control"/></div>
        <div class="col-md-2">
          <input type="button" (click)="addRow()" value="Submit" class="btn btn-primary"></div>
        <li *ngFor="#row of rows">{{}}</li>
export class AddRowComponent {
  rows = [{name: 'Chris Daly'}];
  name = "";

  addRow() {
    this.rows.push({name:}); = '';
