How to Get User Inputs in Angular – Code Samples

0

This blog represents tips/techniques and code samples on how to get user inputs in Angular template-driven forms in an Angular app (angular 2/angular 4). Following represents techniques when using template reference variable such as #fieldName with input element.

  • (keyup)=”methodName(fieldName.value)”
  • (keyup.enter)=”methodName(fieldName.value)”
  • (blur)=”methodName(fieldName.value)”

Technique 1: (keyup) = “methodName(fieldName.value)”

Event keyup helps capture user inputs after every keyup event. The following is the template code:

<input #fieldName (keyup) = "processKeyup(fieldName.value)"/>

The following is the component code:

@Component({
  selector: 'selector-name',
  templateUrl: './some.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./some.component.css']
})
export class SomeComponent {
  processKeyup(value: string) {
    console.log("Value keyed: " + value);
  }
}



Technique 2: (keyup.enter) = “methodName(fieldName.value)”

Event keyup.enter helps capture user inputs after enter/return button is pressed. The following is the template code:

<input #fieldName (keyup.enter) = "processKeyupEnter(fieldName.value)"/>

The following is the component code:

@Component({
  selector: 'selector-name',
  templateUrl: './some.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./some.component.css']
})
export class SomeComponent {
  processKeyupEnter(value: string) {
    console.log("Value entered: " + value);
  }
}

Technique 3: (blur) = “methodName(fieldName.value)”

Event blur helps capture user inputs when user entered some text in the input field and went on to browse the page without pressing enter button. The following is the template code:

<input #fieldName (blur) = "processBlur(fieldName.value)"/>

The following is the component code:

@Component({
  selector: 'selector-name',
  templateUrl: './some.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./some.component.css']
})
export class SomeComponent {
  processBlur(value: string) {
    console.log("Value entered: " + value);
  }
}
