Angular Material 7 - Card

The <mat-card>, an Angular Directive, is used to create a card with material design styling and animation capabilities. It provides preset styles for the common card sections.

  • <mat-card-title> − Represents the section for title.

  • <mat-card-subtitle> − Represents the section for subtitle.

  • <mat-card-content> − Represents the section for content.

  • <mat-card-actions> − Represents the section for actions.

  • <mat-card-footer> − Represents the section for footer.

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

Create Angular Application

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';
import {MatCardModule, MatButtonModule} from '@angular/material'
import {FormsModule, ReactiveFormsModule} from '@angular/forms';
   declarations: [
   imports: [
      MatCardModule, MatButtonModule,
   providers: [],
   bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Following is the content of the modified CSS file app.component.css.

.tp-card {
   max-width: 400px;
.tp-header-image {
   background-image: url('');
   background-size: cover;

Following is the content of the modified HTML host file app.component.html.

<mat-card class = "tp-card">
      <div mat-card-avatar class = "tp-header-image"></div>
      <mat-card-subtitle>HTML Basics</mat-card-subtitle>
   <img mat-card-image src = "" alt = "Learn HTML5">
         HTML5 is the next major revision of the HTML standard superseding
         HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.0, and XHTML 1.1. HTML5 is a standard for
         structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web.
      <button mat-button>LIKE</button>
      <button mat-button>SHARE</button>


Verify the result.
