Angular 5 Services



Now in this part we will be discussing about Angular 5 Services:

  • Let us create a service say “data”
    • $ ng g service data
  • Let us check the service file at /src/app/data.service.ts
    • import { Injectable } from ‘@angular/core’;@Injectable()export class DataService {

          constructor() { }


  • Now from above we can see a service looks like a Component but with @injectable() which means it can be imported into any Component
  • Let us update the service code as:
    • import { Injectable } from ‘@angular/core’;@Injectable()export class DataService {

          private itemName= ‘Apple’;    //Create itemName

         constructor() { }

          getItemName() {
              return this.itemName;

Let us import the service now

  • Add the service to /src/app/app.module.ts:
    • import { DataService } from ‘./data.service’;

      providers: [

  • Import service to component  /src/app/home/home.component.html
    • import { Component, OnInit } from ‘@angular/core’;
      import { DataService } from ‘../data.service’; //Import the Service
          selector: ‘app-home’,
          templateUrl: ‘./home.component.html’,
          styleUrls: [‘./home.component.scss’]
      export class HomeComponent implements OnInit {
          itemName = “Apple”;
          buttonText = “Change Name”;
          constructor(private _data: DataService) { }
          ngOnInit() {
          changeName() { //Create method to call from home.component.html
              this.itemName = this._data.getItemName();
  • Now let us add the click event on the button in src/app/home/home.component.html
    • <input type=”button” [value]=”buttonText” (click)=”changeName()”>
  • Run the application using
    • $ ng serve
  • When the app starts browse on the browser click the “Change Name” button and look into the text box and label values under it will change to “Orange” from “Apple”
