In this video we will discuss
  • Creating a route with parameters and
  • Activating the route

Create a route with parameters : To create a route with parameter include a FORWARD SLASH, a COLON and a place holder for the parameter. The example below, creates a route with parameter id.

{ path: 'employees/:id', component: EmployeeDetailsComponent }

You can have more than one parameter in a route. The following route definition creates a route with 2 parameters - id and name.

{ path: 'employees/:id/:name', component: EmployeeDetailsComponent }

Activating the route with parameters : One way to activate the route is by using the routerLink directive.

<a [routerLink]="['employees',2]">
    Get Employee with Id 2

Code Explanation:
  • Notice in this example we are binding routerLink directive to an array.
  • This array is called link parameters array.
  • The first element in the array is the path of the route to the destination component.
  • The second element in the array is the route parameter, in our case the employee Id.
Another way to activate the route is by using the Angular Router service naviaget() method. Notice to the navigate method also we are passing the same link parameter array.

constructor(private _router: Router) { }

onClick(employeeId: number) {
  this._router.navigate(['/employees', employeeId]);

Angular CLI command to generate EmployeeDetailsComponent
ng g c employees/employee-details --no-spec --flat


.pointerCursor {
    cursor: pointer;


import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { Employee } from '../models/employee.model';
import { EmployeeService } from './employee.service';
import { Router } from '@angular/router';

  templateUrl: './list-employees.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./list-employees.component.css']
export class ListEmployeesComponent implements OnInit {
  employees: Employee[];
  constructor(private _employeeService: EmployeeService,
    private _router: Router) { }

  ngOnInit() {
    this.employees = this._employeeService.getEmployees();

  onClick(employeeId: number) {
    this._router.navigate(['/employees', employeeId]);


<div *ngFor="let employee of employees">
    <div (click)="onClick(" class="pointerCursor">
        <app-display-employee [employee]="employee">


import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { RouterModule, Routes } from '@angular/router';

import { CreateEmployeeCanDeactivateGuardService } from './employees/create-employee-can-deactivate-guard.service';
import { EmployeeDetailsComponent } from './employees/employee-details.component';

const appRoutes: Routes = [
  { path: 'list', component: ListEmployeesComponent },
    path: 'create',
    component: CreateEmployeeComponent,
    canDeactivate: [CreateEmployeeCanDeactivateGuardService]
    path: 'employees/:id', component: EmployeeDetailsComponent
  { path: '', redirectTo: '/list', pathMatch: 'full' }

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