Listen Changes In Reactive Form Controls Using valueChanges In Angular

 These reactive form instances like FormGroup and FormControl have a valueChanges method that returns an observable that emits the latest values.

You can subscribe to valueChanges and perform your app logic over there. Let’s take a very simple example of valueChanges in our reactive form. We are going to create three input fields and track their values using valueChanges in reactive form.

<form [formGroup]="testForm">
	<label>First Name: <input type="text" formControlName="firstname"></label>
	<label>Last Name: <input type="text" formControlName="lastname"></label>
	<label>Email: <input type="text" formControlName="email"></label>


export class AppComponent implements OnInit {
	  testForm: FormGroup;

	  constructor(private formBuilder: FormBuilder) {}

	  ngOnInit() {
	    this.testForm = this.formBuilder.group({
	      firstname: '',
	      lastname: '',
	      email: ''


	  onValueChanges(): void {


Here, you can see, we have created three input fields: firstName, lastname and email using the FormBuilder. After that, we have created a function onValueChanges() and call it in the ngOnInit().

In the onValueChanges(), we are subscribing to our complete form to track changes in any of the input fields and printing them in console log. See the output below:


As you type in any of the input fields, it will emit the changes to our console log.

Instead of listening changes on complete form fields, you can listen for specific form field as well.

onValueChanges(): void {


Just change our onValueChanges() function, and get the form field firstname and subscribe to the change event. here is the output:

As you type in firstName form field, it will emit the changes in the console log.


In this tutorial, we learned about very basic but important concept of detecting the changes in our form fields.

Install Angular - Angular Environment Setup Process

Angular is a TypeScript based framework that works in synchronization with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. To work with angular, domain knowledge of these 3 is required.

  1. Installing Node.js and npm
  2. Installing Angular CLI
  3. Creating workspace
  4. Deploying your First App

In this article, you will get to know about the Angular Environment setup process. After reading this article, you will be able to install, setup, create, and launch your own application in Angular. So let’s start!!!

Angular environment setup

Install Angular in Easy Steps

For Installing Angular on your Machine, there are 2 prerequisites:

  • Node.js
  • npm Package Manager

First you need to have Node.js installed as Angular require current, active LTS or maintenance LTS version of Node.js

Download and Install Node.js version suitable for your machine’s operating system.

Npm Package Manager

Angular, Angular CLI and Angular applications are dependent on npm packages. By installing Node.js, you have automatically installed the npm Package manager which will be the base for installing angular in your system. To check the presence of npm client and Angular version check of npm client, run this command:

  1. npm -v

Installing Angular CLI

  • Open Terminal/Command Prompt
  • To install Angular CLI, run the below command:
  1. npm install -g @angular/cli

installing angular CLI

· After executing the command, Angular CLI will get installed within some time. You can check it using the following command

  1. ng --version

Workspace Creation

Now as your Angular CLI is installed, you need to create a workspace to work upon your application. Methods for it are:

  • Using CLI
  • Using Visual Studio Code
1. Using CLI

To create a workspace:

  • Navigate to the desired directory where you want to create your workspace using cd command in the Terminal/Command prompt
  • Then in the directory write this command on your terminal and provide the name of the app which you want to create. In my case I have mentioned DataFlair:
  1. Ng new YourAppName

create angular workspace

  • After running this command, it will prompt you to select from various options about the CSS and other functionalities.

angular CSS options

  • To leave everything to default, simply press the Enter or the Return key.
