A quick start project that helps you to create an Angular 11 Tab with minimal code configuration.



Project pre-requisites


Make sure that you have the compatible versions of TypeScript and Angular in your machine before starting to work on this project.

Angular 11 Tab – Introduction


The Angular 11 Tab used in this project is created from the Syncfusion `ej2-angular-tab` package. You can simply define it as <ejs-tab> within the template.



Before starting with this project, the Angular 11 Tab requires to add the Syncfusion `ej2-angular-navigations` package from npmjs, which are distributed in npm as @syncfusion scoped packages.

Creating Angular Project


We will see the Angular project creation steps using the Angular CLI tool.

  1. Install the Angular CLI application in your machine.


npm install -g @angular/cli@11.2.3



If you would like to follow and run the application in Angular 6 or Angular 5 or Angular 4, you need to replace the CLI command version number with corresponding angular version number.


npm install -g @angular/cli@<CLI VERSION>

  1. Now create a new Angular project by using the command `ng new` and navigate to that folder.
    ng new angular11-app
    cd angular11-app


  1. Install the ej2-angular-navigations package through the npm install command.


npm install @syncfusion/ej2-angular-navigations --save


Adding Angular 11 Tab


You can add the Angular 11 Tab component by using `ejs-tab` directive and the attributes used within this tag allows you to define other tab functionalities.

  1. Import the TabModule into app.module.ts file from the ej2-angular-navigations package.
  2. The next step in Angular Tab creation is to import and inject the other required modules within the providers section of app.module.ts.


import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';

import { TabModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-navigations';

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';


import { AppComponent } from './app.component';



    imports: [

        BrowserModule, TabModule


    providers: [],

    bootstrap: [AppComponent]


export class AppModule { }


  1. Define the Angular Tab code within the app.component.html file which is mapped against the templateUrl option in app.component.ts file.




<ejs-tab id="element">


    <e-tabitem [header]='headerText[0]'>

      <ng-template #content>
