Angular material dialog example

Project: codever

The following example shows the elements required to implement an angular material dialog to ask the user to log in on Codever, when this is needed (like following tags).

First thing add the MatDialogModule in the Angular module where you intend to use the dialog, and the component holding the dialog body (LoginRequiredDialogComponent) to the entryComponents

  imports:      [
  declarations: [
  exports: [],
  entryComponents: [
export class SharedModule { }

Then in a component, where the dialog is launched, e.g TagComponent, inject a MatDialog service to open Material Design modal dialogs. Then configure the dialog with the help of MatDialogConfig and open it with the component holding the content of the dialog:

export class TagComponent implements OnInit {
  constructor(private tagService: TagService,
              private loginDialog: MatDialog) {

  watchTag() {
    if (!this.userIsLoggedIn) {
      const dialogConfig = new MatDialogConfig();

      dialogConfig.disableClose = true;
      dialogConfig.autoFocus = true; = {
        message: 'You need to be logged in to follow tags'
      };, dialogConfig);
    } else {

Below is the component, LoginRequiredDialogComponent, holdingcontent (body) of the dialog. You can reference and access the provided the calling component using the MAT_DIALOG_DATA injectable:

import { Component, Inject, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { MAT_DIALOG_DATA, MatDialogRef } from '@angular/material/dialog';
import { KeycloakService } from 'keycloak-angular';
import { Router } from '@angular/router';
import { KeycloakServiceWrapper } from '../../core/keycloak-service-wrapper.service';

  selector: 'app-delete-bookmark-dialog',
  templateUrl: './login-required-dialog.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./login-required-dialog.component.scss']
export class LoginRequiredDialogComponent implements OnInit {

  message: string;

    private keycloakService: KeycloakService,
    private keycloakServiceWrapper: KeycloakServiceWrapper,
    private dialogRef: MatDialogRef<LoginRequiredDialogComponent>,
    private router: Router,
    @Inject(MAT_DIALOG_DATA) data
  ) {
    this.message = data.message || 'You need to be logged in to be able execute this action';

  ngOnInit() {

  login() {

  cancel() {


The login() and cancel() methods seen in the component before, are triggered from the angular html template:

<h2 mat-dialog-title>Login required</h2>




<mat-dialog-actions class="app-dialog-actions">
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary btn-sm mr-2" (click)="login()"><i class="fas fa-unlock"></i> Login / Register
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-secondary btn-sm" (click)="cancel()">Cancel</button>
