ng new my-app

Step 2: Add Material UI

install material ui by using following command:

ng add @angular/material

Step 3: Import Form Module

in this step, we need to import form and reactive form module as like bellow:


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

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

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

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

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

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


declarations: [



imports: [







providers: [],

bootstrap: [AppComponent]


export class AppModule { }

Step 4: Update Ts File

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

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

form: FormGroup;

webData = [

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

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

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

{ id: 4, name: 'React' }


get ordersFormArray() {

return this.form.controls.orders as FormArray;


constructor(private formBuilder: FormBuilder) {

this.form ={

orders: new FormArray([])




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);




Step 5: Update HTML File


<h1>Angular Material Dynamic Checkbox Example -</h1>

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