Angular has powerful browser events that extend HTML events by using Angular data binding to handle responses. Some of the built-in Angular events are discussed in Chapter 6, “Data Binding,” in the section “Event Binding.” This chapter goes over built-in events, custom events, and event handling with an Angular application.
Using the built-in events in Angular works like data binding. By wrapping an event name in
(), you let Angular know what event you’re binding to. The event is followed by a statement that can be used to manipulate the data. The following is an example of the syntax for a built-in event:
<input type="text" (change)="myEventHandler($event)" />
