Event binding ()

This is the documentation for Angular 6.
You can switch to the latest version Angular 7.

Event binding syntax consists of a target event name within parentheses on the left of an equal sign, and a quoted template statement on the right. The following event binding listens for the button's click events, calling the component's onSave() method whenever a click occurs:

<button (click)="onSave()">Save</button>

You can also bind an unlimited number of event handlers on the same event by separating them with a semi-colon:

<button (click)="onSave1(); onSave2(); …">Save</button>

In an event binding, Angular sets up an event handler for the target event.

When the event is raised, the handler executes the template statement. The template statement typically involves a receiver, which performs an action in response to the event, such as storing a value from the HTML control into a model.

The binding conveys information about the event, including data values, through an event object named $event.

<input [value]="currentHero.name"

Some people prefer the on- prefix alternative, known as the canonical form:

<button on-click="onSave()">On Save</button>
