Angular PrimeNG is an open-source framework with a rich set of native Angular UI components that are used for great styling and this framework is used to make responsive websites with very much ease. In this article, we will know how to use the Dialog component in Angular PrimeNG. We will also learn about the properties, events & styling along with their syntaxes that will be used in the code.  

Dialog component: It is used to make a component containing some content to display in an overlay window.

Properties:

  • header: It is the title text of the dialog. It is of string data type, the default value is null.

  • p-dialog-content: It is the content element.
  • p-dialog-footer: It is the footer element.

Creating Angular application & module installation:

  • Step 1: Create an Angular application using the following command.
ng new appname
  • Step 2: After creating your project folder i.e. appname, move to it using the following command.
cd appname
  • Step 3: Install PrimeNG in your given directory.
npm install primeng --save
npm install primeicons --save

Project Structure: It will look like the following:

Example 1: This is the basic example that shows how to use the Dialog component. 

app.component.html




<h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
<h5>PrimeNG Dialog Component</h5>
<p-button (click)="gfg()" label="Click Here"></p-button>
<p-dialog header="GeeksforGeeks" [(visible)]="geeks">
    
<p>Angular PrimeNG Dialog Component</p>
  
</p-dialog>

app.module.ts




import { NgModule } from "@angular/core";
import { BrowserModule } from "@angular/platform-browser";
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } 
    from "@angular/platform-browser/animations";
  
import { AppComponent } from "./app.component";
import { DialogModule } from "primeng/dialog";
import { ButtonModule } from "primeng/button";
  
@NgModule({
  imports: [BrowserModule, 
              BrowserAnimationsModule, 
            DialogModule, 
            ButtonModule],
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],
})
export class AppModule {}

 

app.component.ts




import { Component } from "@angular/core";
import { PrimeNGConfig } from "primeng/api";
  
@Component({
  selector: "my-app",
  templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
})
export class AppComponent {
  constructor(private primengConfig: PrimeNGConfig) {}
  
  ngOnInit() {
    this.primengConfig.ripple = true;
  }
  
  geeks: boolean;
  
  gfg() {
    this.geeks = true;
  }
}

Output:

Example 2: In this example, we will know how to use the position property in the Dialog component.

app.component.html




<h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
<h5>PrimeNG Dialog Component</h5>
<p-button (click)="gfg()" label="Click Here"></p-button>
<p-dialog position="top" header="GeeksforGeeks" [(visible)]="geeks">
    
<p>Angular PrimeNG Dialog Component</p>
  
</p-dialog>

app.module.ts




import { NgModule } from "@angular/core";
import { BrowserModule } from "@angular/platform-browser";
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } 
    from "@angular/platform-browser/animations";
  
import { AppComponent } from "./app.component";
import { DialogModule } from "primeng/dialog";
import { ButtonModule } from "primeng/button";
  
@NgModule({
  imports: [BrowserModule, 
              BrowserAnimationsModule, 
            DialogModule, ButtonModule],
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],
})
export class AppModule {}

app.component.ts




import { Component } from "@angular/core";
import { PrimeNGConfig } from "primeng/api";
  
@Component({
  selector: "my-app",
  templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
})
export class AppComponent {
  constructor(private primengConfig: PrimeNGConfig) {}
  
  ngOnInit() {
    this.primengConfig.ripple = true;
  }
  geeks: boolean;
  
  gfg() {
    this.geeks = true;
  }
}

Output:

Example 3: In this example, we will know how to use the visible, modal, resizable & draggable properties in the Dialog component that will help to make the modal to drag & resize.

app.component.html




<h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
<h5>PrimeNG Dialog Component</h5>
<h6>Modal</h6>
<p-button (click)="gfg()" 
    icon="pi pi-external-link" label="View"
</p-button>
  
<p-dialog header="About GeeksforGeeks" 
    [(visible)]="geeks" [modal]="true" 
    [draggable]="true" [resizable]="true">
      
    <p class="p-m-0">
        A Computer Science portal for geeks. 
        It contains well written, well thought
        and well-explained computer science 
        and programming articles. With the idea
        of imparting programming knowledge, 
        Mr. Sandeep Jain, an IIT Roorkee alumnus
        started a dream, GeeksforGeeks. Whether 
        programming excites you or you feel
        stifled, wondering how to prepare for 
        interview questions or how to ace data
        structures and algorithms, GeeksforGeeks 
        is a one-stop solution.
    </p>
  
    <ng-template pTemplate="footer">
        <p-button icon="pi pi-check" 
            (click)="geeks=false" label="OK" 
            class="p-button-text">
        </p-button>
    </ng-template>
</p-dialog>

app.component.ts




import { Component } from "@angular/core";
import { PrimeNGConfig } from "primeng/api";
  
@Component({
  selector: "my-app",
  templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
})
export class AppComponent {
  constructor(private primengConfig: PrimeNGConfig) {}
  
  ngOnInit() {
    this.primengConfig.ripple = true;
  }
  displayModal: boolean;
  
  displayModalDialog() {
    this.displayModal = true;
  }
}

app.module.ts




import { NgModule } from "@angular/core";
import { BrowserModule } from "@angular/platform-browser";
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } 
    from "@angular/platform-browser/animations";
  
import { AppComponent } from "./app.component";
import { DialogModule } from "primeng/dialog";
import { ButtonModule } from "primeng/button";
  
@NgModule({
  imports: [BrowserModule, 
              BrowserAnimationsModule, 
            DialogModule, ButtonModule],
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],
})
export class AppModule {}
