The <mat-button>, an Angular Directive, is used to create a button with material styling and animations.

In this chapter, we will showcase the configuration required to draw a button control using Angular Material.

Follow the following steps to update the Angular application we created in Angular 6 - Project Setup chapter −

Step Description
1 Create a project with a name materialApp as explained in the Angular 6 - Project Setup chapter.
2 Modify app.module.ts, app.component.ts, app.component.css and app.component.html as explained below. Keep rest of the files unchanged.
3 Compile and run the application to verify the result of the implemented logic.

Following is the content of the modified module descriptor app.module.ts.

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import {BrowserAnimationsModule} from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
