Ng Bootstrap is developed from bootstrap and they provide all bootstrap 3 and bootstrap 4 native Angular directives like model, pagination, datepicker, buttons etc. Ng Bootstrap will help to easily use bootstrap ui.

In this example we will simply create one input field with datepicker, so you can use in your angular application. we will use model step by step, so you can easily understand.

So, let's follow this tutorial step by step.

ng new my-new-app

Step 2: Install Bootstrap 4

In this step, we will install bootstrap core package. so we can use bootstrap css so let's install by following command:

npm install bootstrap --save

Now, we need to include bootstrap css like "node_modules/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css", so let's add it on angular.json file.



"styles": [





Step 3: Install Ng Bootstrap

In this step, we will install Ng Bootstrap package. so we can use bootstrap ui so let's install by following command:

npm install --save @ng-bootstrap/ng-bootstrap

Step 4: Import Module

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


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

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

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

import { NgbModule } from '@ng-bootstrap/ng-bootstrap';

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


declarations: [



imports: [





providers: [],

bootstrap: [AppComponent]


export class AppModule { }

Step 5: Updated View File

Now here, we will updated our html file. we will create simple bootstrap input fields for datepicker.

so let's put bellow code:


<h1>Angular Bootstrap 4 Datepicker Example -</h1>

<form class="form-inline">

<div class="form-group">

<div class="input-group">

<input class="form-control" placeholder="yyyy-mm-dd"

name="dp" [(ngModel)]="model" ngbDatepicker #d="ngbDatepicker">

<div class="input-group-append">

<button class="btn btn-outline-secondary calendar" (click)="d.toggle()" type="button"></button>






<pre>Model: {{ model | json }}</pre>

Step 4: Use Component ts File

Now we need to update our component.ts file here we will write code of bootstrap datepicker model, let's update as like bellow:


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


selector: 'app-root',

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

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


export class AppComponent {

title = 'appBootstrap';


constructor() {}
