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

app.component.html




<h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
<h5>PrimeNG TieredMenu Component</h5>
<p-tieredMenu [model]="gfg"></p-tieredMenu>

app.component.ts




import { Component } from "@angular/core";
import { MenuItem } from "primeng/api";
  
@Component({
  selector: "my-app",
  templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
})
export class AppComponent {
  gfg: MenuItem[];
  
  ngOnInit() {
    this.gfg = [
      {
        label: "JavaScript",
        items: [
          {
            label: "JavaScript1",
            items: [
              {
                label: "JavaScript1.1",
              },
              {
                label: "JavaScript1.2",
              },
            ],
          },
          {
            label: "JavaScript2",
          },
          {
            label: "JavaScript3",
          },
        ],
      },
      {
        label: "HTML",
        items: [
          {
            label: "HTML 1",
          },
          {
            label: "HTML 2",
          },
        ],
      },
      {
        label: "Angular",
  
        items: [
          {
            label: "Angular 1",
          },
          {
            label: "Angular 2",
          },
        ],
      },
    ];
  }
}

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 { TieredMenuModule } from "primeng/tieredmenu";
  
@NgModule({
    imports: [BrowserModule, 
              BrowserAnimationsModule,
              TieredMenuModule],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule {}

Output:

Example 2: In this example, we will make the tieredmenu component using popup.

app.component.html




<h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
<h5>PrimeNG TieredMenu Component</h5>
<button #btn type="button" pButton label="Click Here"
        (click)="menu.toggle($event)"></button>
<p-tieredMenu #menu [model]="gfg" [popup]="true"></p-tieredMenu>

app.component.ts




import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { MenuItem } from 'primeng/api';
  
@Component({
  selector: 'my-app',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html'
})
export class AppComponent {
  gfg: MenuItem[];
  
  ngOnInit() {
    this.gfg = [
      {
        label: 'JavaScript',
        items: [
          {
            label: 'JavaScript1',
            items: [
              {
                label: 'JavaScript1.1'
              },
              {
                label: 'JavaScript1.2'
              }
            ]
          },
          {
            label: 'JavaScript2'
          },
          {
            label: 'JavaScript3'
          }
        ]
      },
      {
        label: 'HTML',
        items: [
          {
            label: 'HTML 1'
          },
          {
            label: 'HTML 2'
          }
        ]
      },
      {
        label: 'Angular',
  
        items: [
          {
            label: 'Angular 1'
          },
          {
            label: 'Angular 2'
          }
        ]
      }
    ];
  }
}

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 { TieredMenuModule } from 'primeng/tieredmenu';
import { ButtonModule } from 'primeng/button';
  
@NgModule({
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    BrowserAnimationsModule,
    TieredMenuModule,
