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-label is similar to labels which we use in normal HTML forms. But the advantage with mat-label is that it has pre-defined CSS style classes and animations defined in it.

Installation syntax:

ng add @angular/material


  • First, install the angular material using the above-mentioned command.
  • After completing the installation, Import ‘MatFormFieldModule’ from ‘@angular/material/form-field’ in the app.module.ts file.
  • Now we need to use <mat-label> tag with respective label name inside the <mat-form-field> tag.
  • Below is an example on how to use <mat-label> tag inside <mat-form-field>
  • Once done with the above steps then serve or start the project.

  [ BrowserModule,
