Step 3: Import Module

In third step, we need to import some dependency like MatCheckboxModule and MatButtonModule. so let's add.


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

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

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

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

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

import { MatButtonModule } from '@angular/material/button';

import { MatCheckboxModule } from '@angular/material/checkbox';


declarations: [



imports: [








providers: [],

bootstrap: [AppComponent]


export class AppModule { }

Now in ts file, add bellow code:


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

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


selector: 'app-root',

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

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


export class AppComponent {

title = 'app-material2';

form: FormGroup = new FormGroup({});



Defined constructor



constructor(private fb: FormBuilder) {

this.form ={

i_agree: ['', [Validators.required]],

i_agree_terms: ['', [Validators.required]],





Define f()



get f(){

return this.form.controls;

I Agree with terms and conditions...</mat-checkbox>


<button mat-raised-button color="accent">Submit</button>
