In this article we are going to discuss how to use angular material in angular 9 application. If you are new to angular then explore our Angular Series. If you miss our previous article of angular Routing then please follow the link.

Let’s Create sample angular 9 application and there we use material design. We have create some controls of materiel theme in this example. To create angular 9 application use the below command.

Create Angular Project

The below command is use if are freshly start the angular and install updated angular CLI version.

ng new ng-material-design

Add the material design into angular

Using below command we can add the material design into angular 9 application.

ng add @angular/material
install material design in angular 9

On the above image while we run the command it prompt that which material theme want to install. In our case we use “Indigo/Pink”. You can install any other theme according to your choice just navigate to the themes.

material theme

On the above image you can see after installing the “Indigo/pink” theme the material package also added into package.json, angualr.json and styles.css automatically.

After adding the theme you can find the css in angular.json file like below;

"styles": [

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
import { MatButtonModule } from '@angular/material/button';
import { MatIconModule } from '@angular/material/icon';
import {MatSliderModule} from '@angular/material/slider';
import {MatSelectModule} from '@angular/material/select';

  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Code Explanation

We need to add the several modules into app.module.ts to access in HTML page. After importing the module we need to add into Imports[].

Remove all the predefined HTML in app.componenet.html file then add the materiel design like below;

<div class="container mt-5">
  <h1>Angular Basic Material Design form</h1>
  <mat-slider min="1" max="100" step="1" value="1"></mat-slider>
   <input matInput placeholder="Simple Input" [(ngModel)]="title" class="form-control">
   <mat-form-field appearance="fill">
    <mat-label>Favorite food</mat-label>
      <mat-option *ngFor="let food of foods" [value]="food.value">
  <button mat-raised-button>Material button</button>

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

interface Food {
  value: string;
  viewValue: string;
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
  title = 'ng-material-design';
  foods: Food[] = [
    {value: 'steak-0', viewValue: 'Steak'},
    {value: 'pizza-1', viewValue: 'Pizza'},
    {value: 'tacos-2', viewValue: 'Tacos'}

Code Explanation


  • Here we take a basic example to create a materiel text box. Matinput is responsible for to convert the textbox into material text-box with [(ngModel)] is used to bind the title.
  • Then we create the material slider, Icon, Button etc..
  • We create a dummy drop down to access the value from app.component.ts. In the mat-option we iterate the result and bind the data into dropdown.


  • Here we declare title value that should append on the text box.
  • Then we added a Interface of Food that hold the fruits information.
  • Finally, we declare a foods list that contain food array.
  • Consuming the foods list the drop-down can bind.

That’s it run the application and see the output like below;
