Add Row – Concepts

Following are some of the key points to be noted in relation to 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 loading…
  • 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: `
