Data binding is a fundamental aspect of modern web development frameworks, and Angular is no exception. Angular’s powerful data binding capabilities make it easier to synchronize data between the component’s logic and the user interface. In this blog post, we will explore the various types of data binding in Angular and provide practical examples to help you understand and utilize them effectively.

What is Angular Data Binding

Data binding is a technique, where the data stays in sync between the component and the view. Whenever the user updates the data in the view, Angular updates the component. When the component gets new data, Angular updates the view.

There are many uses of data binding. You can show models to the user, dynamically Change element style, respond to user events, etc


Interpolation is the simplest form of data binding in Angular. It allows you to embed expressions directly into the HTML template. To perform interpolation, use double curly braces {{ }} and place the expression inside them. Angular evaluates the expression and replaces it with the corresponding value. Let’s consider an example:

<h1>Welcome, {{ name }}!</h1>

In the component class, define a variable named ‘name’:

export class AppComponent {
  name: string = 'John Doe';

The value of the ‘name’ variable will be dynamically rendered in the HTML template, resulting in “Welcome, John Doe!” being displayed.

Property Binding:

Property binding enables you to set the value of an HTML element property based on a component’s property. It uses square brackets [] to bind the property value. Let’s see an example:

<img [src]="imageUrl" alt="Image">

In the component class, define the ‘imageUrl’ property:

export class AppComponent {
  imageUrl: string = 'path/to/image.jpg';

The value of the ‘imageUrl’ property is bound to the ‘src’ attribute of the ‘img’ tag, and the corresponding image will be displayed.

Event Binding:

Event binding allows you to respond to user actions, such as button clicks, mouse movements, or keyboard events. It uses parentheses () to bind the event to a method in the component class. Here’s an example:

<button (click)="handleClick()">Click Me</button>

In the component class, define the ‘handleClick’ method:

export class AppComponent {
  handleClick(): void {
    console.log('Button clicked!');

When the button is clicked, the ‘handleClick’ method is invoked, and the message ‘Button clicked!’ is logged to the console.

Two-way Binding:

Two-way data binding allows you to bind a property and listen to changes in both the component and the template. It utilizes the combination of property binding and event binding using the ‘ngModel’ directive. Consider the following example:

<input [(ngModel)]="username" placeholder="Enter your name">
<p>Your name is: {{ username }}</p>

In the component class, define the ‘username’ property:

export class AppComponent {
  username: string = '';

With two-way binding, changes in the input field will update the ‘username’ property, and changes to the ‘username’ property in the component will reflect in the input field as well as the paragraph tag.


Data binding is a powerful feature in Angular that allows for efficient communication between components and their templates. In this blog post, we covered the four main types of data binding in Angular: interpolation, property binding, event binding, and two-way binding. Understanding these techniques and their implementation will help you build dynamic and responsive applications with ease. Experiment with these examples and explore further to leverage the full potential of data binding in Angular. Happy coding!
