@NgModule({

declarations: [

AppComponent

],

imports: [

BrowserModule,

FormsModule,

ReactiveFormsModule

],

providers: [],

bootstrap: [AppComponent]

})

export class AppModule { }

Step 3: Update Ts File

app/app.component.ts

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

import {

FormBuilder,

FormGroup,

FormArray,

FormControl,

ValidatorFn

} from '@angular/forms';

@Component({

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

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

})

export class AppComponent {

name = 'Angular';

form: FormGroup;

webData = [

{ id: 1, name: 'PHP' },

{ id: 2, name: 'Laravel' },

{ id: 3, name: 'Angular' },

}

constructor(private formBuilder: FormBuilder) {

this.form = this.formBuilder.group({

orders: new FormArray([])

});

this.addCheckboxesToForm();

}

private addCheckboxesToForm() {

this.webData.forEach(() => this.ordersFormArray.push(new FormControl(false)));

}

submit() {

const selectedOrderIds = this.form.value.orders

.map((checked, i) => checked ? this.webData[i].id : null)

.filter(v => v !== null);
