Angular Material 7 - Grid List

The <mat-grid-list>, an Angular Directive, is used to create a two dimensional view arranging cells into grid based layout.

In this chapter, we will showcase the configuration required to draw a grid list 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 {MatGridListModule} from '@angular/material'
import {FormsModule, ReactiveFormsModule} from '@angular/forms';
   declarations: [
   imports: [
   providers: [],
   bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

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

mat-grid-tile {
   background: lightblue;

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

<mat-grid-list cols = "4" rowHeight = "100px">
   [colspan] = "3"
   [rowspan] = "1">1
   [colspan] = "1"
   [rowspan] = "2">2
   [colspan] = "1"
   [rowspan] = "1">3
   [colspan] = "2"
   [rowspan] = "1">4


Verify the result.
