  • index: get the index of a current item in an array
  • count - length of an array that is equal to the array.length
  • first: returns true if the current object is the first object, else false.
  • last: returns true if the current object is the last, else false.
  • even: returns true if a current object index is an even number
  • odd : returns true if a current object index is an odd number

Let’s create an Angular component

  • Initialize an object array with employee data
import { Component } from "@angular/core";
import { Employee } from "./employee";

  selector: "my-app",
  templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
  styleUrls: ["./app.component.css"],
export class AppComponent {
  employees: Employee[] = [
    { id: 1, name: "Ram", salary: 5000 },
    { id: 2, name: "John", salary: 1000 },
    { id: 3, name: "Franc", salary: 3000 },
    { id: 4, name: "Andrew ", salary: 8000 },
  constructor() {}

  ngOnInit() {}

<table style="width:100%">
