@ViewChildren

You can use ViewChildren to get the QueryList of elements or directives from the view DOM. Any time a child element is added, removed, or moved, the query list will be updated, and the changes observable of the query list will emit a new value.

View queries are set before the ngAfterViewInit callback is called.

Example

import {AfterViewInit, Component, Directive, QueryList, ViewChildren} from '@angular/core';

@Directive({selector: 'child-directive'})
class ChildDirective {
}

@Component({selector: 'someCmp', templateUrl: 'someCmp.html'})
class SomeCmp implements AfterViewInit {
  @ViewChildren(ChildDirective) viewChildren: QueryList<ChildDirective>;

  ngAfterViewInit() {
    // viewChildren is set
  }
}
