Angular Material - Overview

Angular Material is a UI component library for Angular JS developers. Angular Material's reusable UI components help in constructing attractive, consistent, and functional web pages and web applications while adhering to modern web design principles like browser portability, device independence, and graceful degradation.

Following are a few salient features of Angular Material −

  • In-built responsive designing.

  • Standard CSS with minimal footprint.

  • Includes new versions of common user interface controls such as buttons, check boxes, and text fields which are adapted to follow Material Design concepts.

  • Includes enhanced and specialized features like cards, toolbar, speed dial, side nav, swipe, and so on.

  • Cross-browser, and can be used to create reusable web components.

Responsive Design

  • Angular Material has in-built responsive designing so that the website created using Angular Material will redesign itself as per the device size.

  • Angular Material classes are created in such a way that the website can fit any screen size.

  • The websites created using Angular Material are fully compatible with PC, tablets, and mobile devices.

Extensible

  • Angular Material is by design very minimal and flat.

  • It is designed considering the fact that it is much easier to add new CSS rules than to overwrite existing CSS rules.

  • It supports shadows and bold colors.

  • The colors and shades remain uniform across various platforms and devices.

And most important of all, Angular Material is absolutely free to use.

Angular Material - Environment Setup

How to Use Angular Material?

There are two ways to use Angular Material −

  • Local Installation − You can download the Angular Material libraries using npm, jspm, or bower on your local machine and include it in your HTML code.

  • CDN Based Version − You can include the angular-material.min.css and angular-material js files into your HTML code directly from the Content Delivery Network (CDN).

Local Installation

Befor we use the following npm command, we require the NodeJS installation on our system. To get information about node JS, click here and open the NodeJS command line interface. We will use the following command to install Angular Material libraries.

npm install angular-material

The above command will generate the following output −

angular-animate@1.5.2 node_modules\angular-animate

angular-aria@1.5.2 node_modules\angular-aria

angular-messages@1.5.2 node_modules\angular-messages

angular@1.5.2 node_modules\angular

angular-material@1.0.6 node_modules\angular-material

npm will download the files under node_modules > angular-material folder. Include the files as explained in the following example −

Example

Now you can include the css and js file in your HTML file as follows −

Angular Material - Autocomplete

The md-autocomplete, an Angular Directive, is used as a special input control with an inbuilt dropdown to show all possible matches to a custom query. This control acts as a real-time suggestion box as soon as the user types in the input area. <md-autocomplete> can be used to provide search results from local or remote data sources. md-autocomplete caches results when performing a query. After first call, it uses the cached results to eliminate unnecessary server requests or lookup logic and it can be disabled.

  • template - {string=} − Same as templateUrl, except this is an actual template string.

  • scope - {object=} − The scope to link the template / controller to. If none is specified, it will create a new child scope. This scope will be destroyed when the bottom sheet is removed unless preserveScope is set to true.

  • preserveScope - {boolean=} − It dictates whether to preserve the scope when the element is removed. By default, it is false.

  • controller - {string=} − The controller to associate with this bottom sheet.

  • locals - {string=} − An object containing key/value pairs. The keys will be used as names of values to inject into the controller. For example, locals: {three: 3} will inject three into the controller with the value of 3.

  • clickOutsideToClose - {boolean=} − It dictates whether the user can click outside the bottom sheet to close it. By default, it is true.

  • escapeToClose - {boolean=}: It dictates whether the user can press escape to close the bottom sheet. By default, it is true.

  • resolve - {object=} − Similar to locals, except that it takes promises as values and the bottom sheet will not open until the promises resolve.

  • controllerAs - {string=}: An alias to assign the controller to on the scope.

  • parent - {element=} − The element to append the bottom sheet to. The parent may be a function, string, object, or null. Defaults to appending to the body of the root element (or the root element) of the application. e.g. angular.element(document.getElementById('content')) or "#content".

Angular Material - Inputs

The md-input-container, an Angular directive, is a container component that contains any <input> or <textarea> element as a child. It also supports error handling using the standard ng-messages directives and animates the messages using the ngEnter/ngLeave events or the ngShow/ngHide events.

Attributes

The following table lists out the parameters and description of the different attributes of the md-input-container.

Sr.No Parameter & Description
1

md-maxlength

The maximum number of characters allowed in this input. If this is specified, a character counter will be shown underneath the input. The purpose of the md-maxlength is to show the max length counter text. If you don't want the counter text and only need "plain" validation, you can use the "simple" ng-maxlength or maxlength attributes.

2

aria-label

Aria-label is required when no label is present. A warning message will be logged in the console if a label is not present.

3

placeholder

An alternative approach to using aria-label when the label is not present. The placeholder text is copied to the aria-label attribute.

4

md-no-autogrow

When present, the textareas will not grow automatically.

5

md-detect-hidden

When present, the textareas will be sized properly when they are revealed after being hidden. This is off by default for performance reasons because it guarantees a reflow every digest cycle.

Example

The following example shows the use of the md-input-container directive and also the uses of inputs.

Angular Material - SideNav

The md-sidenav, an Angular directive is used to show a container component which can be shown or hide programmatically. It slides out over the top of the main content region by default.

Attributes

The following table lists out the parameters and description of the different attributes of md-sidenav

Sr.No Parameter & Description
1

md-is-open

A model bound to whether the sidenav is opened.

2

md-component-id

componentId to use with $mdSidenav service.

3

md-is-locked-open

When this expression evalutes to true, the sidenav 'locks open': it falls into the content's flow instead of appearing over it. This overrides the is-open attribute. The $mdMedia() service is exposed to the is-locked-open attribute, which can be given a media query or one of the sm, gt-sm, md, gt-md, lg or gt-lg presets.

Examples

<md-sidenav md-is-locked-open = "shouldLockOpen"></md-sidenav>
<md-sidenav md-is-locked-open = "$mdMedia('min-width: 1000px')"></mdsidenav>
<md-sidenav md-is-locked-open = "$mdMedia('sm')"></md-sidenav> <!--(locks open on small screens)-->

Example

The following example shows the use of md-sidenav and also the uses of the sidenav component.

Angular Material - Virtual Repeat

The md-virtual-repeat-container is the scroll container for the md-virtual-repeat component.

Attributes

The following table lists out the parameters and description of the different attributes of md-virtual-repeat-container.

Sr.No Parameter & Description
1

md-top-index

Binds the index of the item that is at the top of the scroll container to $scope. It can both read and set the scroll position.

2

md-orient-horizontal

Determines whether the container should scroll horizontally (defaults to orientation and scrolling vertically).

3

md-auto-shrink

When present, the container will shrink to fit the number of items when that number is less than its original size.

4

md-auto-shrink-min

Minimum number of items that md-auto-shrink will shrink to (default: 0).

md-virtual-repeat

Virtual repeat is a substitute for ng-repeat to renders only enough html elements to fill the container and reuse them when the user scrolls.

Attributes

The following table lists out the parameters and description of the different attributes of md-virtual-repeat.

Sr.No Parameter & Description
1

md-item-size

The height or width of the repeated elements (which must be identical for each element). This is optional. This attempts to read the size from the dom if missing, but still assumes that all repeated nodes have same height or width.

2

md-extra-name

Evaluates to an additional name to which the current iterated item can be assigned on the repeated scope (needed for use in md-autocomplete).

3

md-on-demand

When present, treats the md-virtual-repeat argument as an object that can fetch rows rather than an array.This object must implement the following interface with two (2) methods −

  • getItemAtIndex − function(index) [object] - The item at that index or null if it is not yet loaded (it should start downloading the item in that case).

  • getLength − function() [number] - The data length to which the repeater container should be sized. Ideally, when the count is known, this method should return it. Otherwise, return a higher number than the currently loaded items to produce an infinite-scroll behavior.

Example

The following example showe the use of virtual repeat.
