Create an Angular application from Scratch

First, create an angular application from scratch using the angular cli command.

And integrate primeng libraries into the Angular application

if you are not sure how to do it, You can check the below things.

Once primeng is installed into the application, the application is ready to run. You can import ListboxModule into the angular application.

ListboxModule is an angular module for list box components and directives from the primeng framework.

Add ListboxModule in the application module

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

import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { ButtonModule } from 'primeng/button';
import { ListboxModule } from 'primeng/listbox';


@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AppComponent
  ],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    AppRoutingModule,
    ButtonModule,
    ListboxModule
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }

Angular ListBox example

First, Create a model object as defined below role.ts

interface Role {
    name: string,
    value: string
}
export default Role;

Import model into an angular component

import Role from './model/Role';

In the typescript component: Here are steps

  • declare roles model object
  • selectedRole with the type of any type to hold the select values of the list box
  • Initialize the roles object with static data or pull from API
import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import Role from './model/Role';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.scss']
})
export class AppComponent {
  title = "Primeng listbox example"
  roles: Role[];
  selectedRole: any;
  constructor() {
    this.roles = [
      { name: 'Administrator', value: 'ADMIN' },
      { name: 'Sales', value: 'SALE' },
      { name: 'Marketing', value: 'MKT' },
      { name: 'HR', value: 'HR' },
      { name: 'Finance', value: 'FIN' },
    ]
  }


}

selectedRole is declared using the two-way binding approach with the ngModel attribute.

It holds a role object when the user selected an item in the Listbox.

Here is the template component.

<h1>{{title}}</h1>

<p-listbox [options]="roles" [(ngModel)]="selectedRole" optionLabel="name"></p-listbox>

<p>Selected Role: {{selectedRole ? selectedRole.name : 'none'}}</p>

Output: Angular primeng listbox example

In the constructor, please assign the value

  constructor() {
    this.selectedRole = this.roles[0];
  }

This will select the first element of the list box programmatically.

Error: src/app/app.component.html:3:30 - error NG8002: Can't bind to 'ngModel' since it isn't a known property of 'p-listbox'.
1. If 'p-listbox' is an Angular component and it has 'ngModel' input, then verify that it is part of this module.
2. If 'p-listbox' 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.

3 <p-listbox [options]="roles" [(ngModel)]="selectedRole" optionLabel="name"></p-listbox>

import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { ButtonModule } from 'primeng/button';
import { ListboxModule } from 'primeng/listbox';
import { FormsModule, ReactiveFormsModule } from '@angular/forms';

  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
