Angular Material mat-tab-group
  • Last Updated : 16 Feb, 2021

Angular Material is a UI component library that is developed by the Angular team to build design components for desktop and mobile web applications. In order to install it, we need to have angular installed in our project, once you have it you can enter the below command and can download it. mat-tab-group is used mainly for navbar requirements when we have multiple tabs to display.

Installation:

ng add @angular/material

Approach:

  • First, install the angular material using the above-mentioned command.
  • After completing the installation, Import ‘MatTabsModule’ from ‘@angular/material/tabs’ in the app.module.ts file.
  • Then use the <mat-tab-group> tag to group all the items inside this group tag.
  • Inside the <mat-tab-group> tag we need to use <mat-tab> tag for every item.
  • We can also style the tabs basing upon the position like start, center, and end. For this, we need to use a property called mat-align-tabs.
  • If we want to change the theme then we can change it by using the color property. In angular we have 3 themes, they are primary, accent, and warn.
  • Once done with the above steps then serve or start the project.

Example:

app.module.ts






import { NgModule } from '@angular/core'
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser'
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms'
import { MatTabsModule } from '@angular/material/tabs'
      
import { AppComponent } from './app.component'
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from 
'@angular/platform-browser/animations';
  
  
@NgModule({ 
  imports: 
  [ BrowserModule, 
    FormsModule, 
    MatTabsModule,
    BrowserAnimationsModule], 
  declarations: [ AppComponent ], 
  bootstrap: [ AppComponent ] 
}) 
  
export class AppModule { }
