By Hardik Savani | March 3, 2020 | Category : Angular


This article will give you example of how to upload multiple images in angular 9. i will write example of angular 9 upload multiple images. you will learn multiple image upload in angular 9. you can see multiple image upload in angular 9.

i will give you very simple example from scratch for upload multiple images with reactive form in angular 9 application.

Here, we will simple create reactive form using formGroup. input file onchange event we will add images to another formgroup element. then after click on submit button we will call web api for store that image to server.

I written step by step image uploading with angular 9 application, also created web services using php. so let's follow bellowing step and get preview like as bellow:

Step 1: Create New App

You can easily create your angular app using bellow command:

ng new my-new-app

Step 2: Import Module

In this step, we need to import HttpClientModule, FormsModule and ReactiveFormsModule to app.module.ts file. so let's import it as like bellow:

src/app/app.module.ts

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { HttpClientModule } from '@angular/common/http';

import { FormsModule, ReactiveFormsModule } from '@angular/forms';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

@NgModule({

declarations: [

AppComponent

],

imports: [

BrowserModule,

HttpClientModule,

FormsModule,

ReactiveFormsModule

],

providers: [],

bootstrap: [AppComponent]

})

export class AppModule { }

Step 3: Updated View File

Now here, we will updated our html file. we will create simple reactive form with input file element and image tag for preview.

In this file i used bootstrap 4 class, if you want to use bootstrap then you can follow this link: Install Bootstrap 4 in Angular 9

so let's put bellow code:

src/app/app.component.html

<h1>Angular 9 Multiple Image Upload with Preview - ItSolutionStuff.com</h1>

<form [formGroup]="myForm" (ngSubmit)="submit()">

<div class="form-group">

<label for="name">Name</label>

<input

formControlName="name"

id="name"

type="text"

class="form-control">

<div *ngIf="f.name.touched && f.name.invalid" class="alert alert-danger">

<div *ngIf="f.name.errors.required">Name is required.</div>

<div *ngIf="f.name.errors.minlength">Name should be 3 character.</div>

</div>

</div>

<div class="form-group">

<label for="file">File</label>

<input

formControlName="file"

id="file"

type="file"

class="form-control"

multiple=""

(change)="onFileChange($event)">

<div *ngIf="f.file.touched && f.file.invalid" class="alert alert-danger">

<div *ngIf="f.file.errors.required">File is required.</div>

</div>

</div>

<img *ngFor='let url of images' [src]="url" height="150" width="200px" style="margin: 3px;"> <br/>

<button class="btn btn-primary" type="submit">Submit</button>

</form>

Step 4: Use Component ts File

Now we need to update our component.ts file with formGroup and formControl element.

i used my local api file url 'http://localhost:8001/upload.php', you can use your api there.

so, let's update as like bellow:

src/app/app.component.ts

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';

import { FormGroup, FormControl, Validators} from '@angular/forms';

@Component({

selector: 'app-root',

templateUrl: './app.component.html',

styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']

})

export class AppComponent {

images = [];

myForm = new FormGroup({

name: new FormControl('', [Validators.required, Validators.minLength(3)]),

file: new FormControl('', [Validators.required]),

fileSource: new FormControl('', [Validators.required])

});

constructor(private http: HttpClient) { }

get f(){

return this.myForm.controls;

}

onFileChange(event) {

if (event.target.files && event.target.files[0]) {

var filesAmount = event.target.files.length;

for (let i = 0; i < filesAmount; i++) {

var reader = new FileReader();

reader.onload = (event:any) => {

console.log(event.target.result);

this.images.push(event.target.result);

this.myForm.patchValue({

fileSource: this.images

});

}

reader.readAsDataURL(event.target.files[i]);

}

}

}

submit(){

console.log(this.myForm.value);

this.http.post('http://localhost:8001/upload.php', this.myForm.value)

.subscribe(res => {

console.log(res);

alert('Uploaded Successfully.');

})

}

}

Now we are ready to run our example, we will create api file using php. so you can create update.php file with "upload" folder and run with different port and call it. so let's create upload.php file as like bellow:

upload.php

<?php

header("Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *");

header("Access-Control-Allow-Methods: PUT, GET, POST");

header("Access-Control-Allow-Headers: Origin, X-Requested-With, Content-Type, Accept");

$folderPath = "upload/";

$postdata = file_get_contents("php://input");

$request = json_decode($postdata);

foreach ($request->fileSource as $key => $value) {

$image_parts = explode(";base64,", $value);

$image_type_aux = explode("image/", $image_parts[0]);

$image_type = $image_type_aux[1];

$image_base64 = base64_decode($image_parts[1]);

$file = $folderPath . uniqid() . '.'.$image_type;

file_put_contents($file, $image_base64);

}

Now we are ready to run both:

Run Angular App:

ng serve

Run PHP API:

php -S localhost:8001

Now you can run and check it.

I hope it can help you...
