The angular reactive form is used to handle the user’s input. We can use Angular form in the application to authorize the user to log in, to update profile, to enter information, and to perform many other data-entry tasks.

In Angular 8, there are two approaches to handle the user’s input by forms.

  • Reactive forms
  • Template-driven forms

Both are used to collect user input events from the view, validate the user input, create a form model and model to update, and provide a way to track changes.

Angular 8 Form Example

  • Register the Reactive forms Module

Use the reactive forms by importing ReactiveFormsModule from @angular/forms package and add it into the app.module.ts file’s import array.

We use the given below code in “app.module.ts” file.

  • Add FormControl class register to the control in the template and update the FormControl value.

The FormControl class is the essential building block of angular when using reactive forms. So if we want to record the single form control, we need to import the FormControl class into our component and create the new instance of the form of control to save as the class property.

Now, modify the “app.component.ts” file.
