Angular 8/7 Form Validation with Bootstrap using Template driven Validation

In this tutorial, we will discuss how to implement simple form validation in Angular 8 application using Template-driven validation method.

For form validation tutorial we will use Bootstrap UI library to ease our task. In this form example, we will have Input field, Select box with single and multiple selections, Textarea and a checkbox.

On the form, we will add a template variable to get its reference in our component class using @ViewChild decorator. In component, we will define a method which will be called on clicking submit button on the form.

Let’s get started quickly!

In the form element, we have added template reference variable #MyForm of type ngForm with a (submit) event handler.

Update component class with submit method

Above component is having an interface FormObject defined.

To get form reference in class we used @ViewChild decorator.
