Creating Angular application & module installation:

  • 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: After completing the above processes, it will look like the following.

 

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

app.component.html




<h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
<h5>PrimeNG ListBox component</h5>
<p-listbox
  [options]="gfg"
  [(ngModel)]="selectedCourse"
  optionLabel="name"
  [style]="{'width':'15rem'}">
</p-listbox>

app.module.ts




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

app.component.ts




import { Component } from "@angular/core";
import { PrimeNGConfig, SelectItemGroup } from "primeng/api";
  
interface Course {
  name: string;
}
  
@Component({
  selector: "my-app",
  templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
  styles: [],
})
export class AppComponent {
  gfg: Course[];
  selectedCourse: Course;
  
  constructor(private primengConfig: PrimeNGConfig) {
    this.gfg = [
      { name: "HTML5" },
      { name: "JavaScript" },
      { name: "Java" },
      { name: "ReactJS" },
      { name: "AngularJS" },
    ];
  }
}

Output:

Example 2: In this example, we will make a dynamic listBox Group. 

app.component.html




<h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
<h5>PrimeNG ListBox Component</h5>
<p-listbox [options]="gfg" [checkbox]="true" 
           [filter]="true" [multiple]="true" 
           optionLabel="name">
</p-listbox>

app.module.ts




import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
import { HttpClientModule } from '@angular/common/http';
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } 
    from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { ListboxModule } from 'primeng/listbox';
import { ButtonModule } from 'primeng/button';
  
@NgModule({
  imports: [BrowserModule, 
              BrowserAnimationsModule, 
            ListboxModule, FormsModule],
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule {}

app.component.ts




import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { PrimeNGConfig } from 'primeng/api';
interface Course {
  name: string;
}
  
@Component({
  selector: 'my-app',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html'
})
export class AppComponent {
  gfg: any[];
  
  constructor(private primengConfig: PrimeNGConfig) {
    this.gfg = [
      { name: 'AngularJS' },
      { name: 'ReactJS' },
      { name: 'Java' },
      { name: 'JavaScript' },
      { name: 'HTML' },
      { name: 'PrimeNG' },
      { name: 'Bootstrap' }
    ];
  }
  
  ngOnInit() {
    this.primengConfig.ripple = true;
  }
}
