Angular PrimeNG checkboxes styling and events handling

Getting Started With PrimeNG Styling in Angular App


This chapter I am planning to show how you can handle events of the checkboxes. For that I will use checkbox for every card to place the order. 

To use PrimeNG checkboxes you have to import checkbox module in app.module.ts file.


import {CheckboxModule} from 'primeng/checkbox';


import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { LandingComponent } from './modules/landing/landing.component';
import { HomeComponent } from './modules/home/home.component';
import { CardModule } from 'primeng/card';
import {CheckboxModule} from 'primeng/checkbox';

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AppComponent,
    LandingComponent,
    HomeComponent
  ],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    AppRoutingModule,
    CardModule,
    CheckboxModule
    
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }


Then you must import checkbox module inside your component.ts file to use it inside the html template.


import { Component, OnInit, ViewEncapsulation } from '@angular/core';
import { flower } from '../../domain/flower';
import {CardModule} from 'primeng/card';
import {CheckboxModule} from 'primeng/checkbox';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-landing',
  templateUrl: './landing.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./landing.component.scss'],
  encapsulation: ViewEncapsulation.None
})
export class LandingComponent implements OnInit {


I have added checkbox PrimeNG component inside my flower card as below.


<h1>Welcome to my flower store</h1>

<div *ngFor="let flower of myFlowerList;trackBy:trackFlowers">
        <p-card header="{{flower.name}}"  [style]="{width: '360px','float':'left','margin-bottom': '2em','margin-right': '2em','background-color':'light-pink'}" styleClass="p-card-shadow">
                <img alt="Card" width="100" height="100" src="assets/stock/{{flower.name}}.jpg">
            <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Inventore sed consequuntur error repudiandae numquam deserunt
                quisquam repellat libero asperiores earum nam nobis, culpa ratione quam perferendis esse, cupiditate neque quas!</p>
                <p-checkbox name="flower" [style]="{'margin-top': '2em'}" value="{{flower.name}}" label="Order Now" [(ngModel)]="selectedFlowers"></p-checkbox>
             
            </p-card>
    </div>


As a checkbox value I set the name property of flower object

value="{{flower.name}}" 

[(ngModel)] directive is supporting two-way binding in angular.

Two-way data binding in Angular will help users to exchange data from the component to view and from view to the component. It will help users to establish communication bi-directionally.

In order to use ngModel directive we must import the FormsModule from @angular/forms in app.module.ts file as shown below.


import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { LandingComponent } from './modules/landing/landing.component';
import { HomeComponent } from './modules/home/home.component';
import { CardModule } from 'primeng/card';
import {CheckboxModule} from 'primeng/checkbox';
import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common';
import { FormsModule }    from '@angular/forms';

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AppComponent,
    LandingComponent,
    HomeComponent
  ],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    AppRoutingModule,
    CardModule,
    CheckboxModule,
    CommonModule,
    FormsModule
    
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }


If you don’t import it you will get the template binding as below in your console.

Uncaught Error: Template parse errors:
Can't bind to 'ngModel' since it isn't a known property of 'p-checkbox'.

1. If 'p-checkbox' is an Angular component and it has 'ngModel' input, then verify that it is part of this module.

2. If 'p-checkbox' is a Web Component then add 'CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA' to the '@NgModule.schemas' of this component to suppress this message.

3. To allow any property add 'NO_ERRORS_SCHEMA' to the '@NgModule.schemas' of this component. ("<p-checkbox name="flower" [style]="{'margin-top': '2em'}" value="{{flower.name}}" label="Order Now" [ERROR ->][(ngModel)]="selectedFlowers"></p-checkbox>



can't bind to 'ngmodel' since it isn't a known property of 'p-checkbox'.


After that in my component.ts file I have defined the array to use in two-way binding.


import { Component, OnInit, ViewEncapsulation } from '@angular/core';
import { flower } from '../../domain/flower';
import {CardModule} from 'primeng/card';
import {CheckboxModule} from 'primeng/checkbox';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-landing',
  templateUrl: './landing.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./landing.component.scss'],
  encapsulation: ViewEncapsulation.None
})
export class LandingComponent implements OnInit {

  myFlowerList:flower[]=[];
  selectedFlowers: string[] = [];
  constructor() { }

  ngOnInit() {
    this.mySellingFlowers();
  }

  mySellingFlowers(){
    let rose = new flower();
    rose.name = "Rose";
    rose.price = 100;
    rose.availableQuantity = 1000;
    this. myFlowerList.push(rose);

    let lily = new flower();
    lily.name = "Lilly";
    lily.price = 80;
    lily.availableQuantity = 2000;
    this. myFlowerList.push(lily);

    let tulip = new flower();
    tulip.name = "Tulip";
    tulip.price = 100;
    tulip.availableQuantity = 2300;
    this. myFlowerList.push(tulip);

    let carnation = new flower();
    carnation.name = "Carnation";
    carnation.price = 50;
    carnation.availableQuantity = 1500;
    this. myFlowerList.push(carnation);

    let gerbera = new flower();
    gerbera.name = "Gerbera";
    gerbera.price = 50;
    gerbera.availableQuantity = 1500;
    this. myFlowerList.push(gerbera);

    let orchid = new flower();
    orchid.name = "Orchid";
    orchid.price = 50;
    orchid.availableQuantity = 1500;
    this. myFlowerList.push(orchid);

  }

  trackFlowers(index,flower){
    return flower?flower.name:undefined
  }
}


Now I will display the value of this array in my html file as below.


<div>You have ordered:</div>
    <ul>
        <li *ngFor="let selectedFlower of selectedFlowers">
            {{selectedFlower}}

        </li>
    </ul>


Now we have done all the coding. You will see the name of the flower in your browser is showing and hiding based on check or uncheck event of the checkboxes.

The Power of ChatGPT and Whisper Models

A Deep Dive into Natural Language Processing Natural Language Processing (NLP) has seen a significant boost in recent years due to advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning. Two models that have shown remarkable success in NLP are ChatGPT and Whisper. In this article, we will delve into the power of these models and their applications in the field of NLP. ChatGPT is a transformer-based language model developed by OpenAI that uses unsupervised learning to predict the next word in a sentence based on the context of previous words. ChatGPT is a generative model that is trained on large datasets of text, such as books and articles, and can be fine-tuned for specific tasks, such as question-answering or dialogue generation. ChatGPT is known for its ability to produce human-like text, making it an ideal tool for applications such as chatbots, content creation, and language translation. Whisper, on the other hand, is a paraphrasing model developed by Google that is based on

You can run below command to generate the component using Angular CLI CD <<folder where you want to have the component>>   Run  ng g c <<component name>>     ng g c <<component name>> Angular CLI will create for files and also update the app.module.ts file by adding new entry to the import section. Next we will create the component for home page.

Introduction to Angular

Google release AngularJS in year 2010. It got popular immediately because it made static HTML interactive. However, with other latest web development technologies developers started to see drawbacks of AngularJS. Google then start to rewrite framework again and decided to shift from Java Script to Type Script.
