Examples

Basic Usage

app.module.ts
import { QueryBuilderModule } from "angular2-query-builder";
import { AppComponent } from "./app.component"

@NgModule(imports: [
  ...,
  QueryBuilderModule,
  IonicModule.forRoot(AppComponent) // (Optional) for IonicFramework 2+
])
export class AppModule { }
app.component.html
...
<query-builder [(ngModel)]='query' [config]='config'></query-builder>
...
app.component.ts
import { QueryBuilderConfig } from 'angular2-query-builder';

export class AppComponent {
  query = {
    condition: 'and',
    rules: [
      {field: 'age', operator: '<=', value: 'Bob'},
      {field: 'gender', operator: '>=', value: 'm'}
    ]
  };
  
  config: QueryBuilderConfig = {
    fields: {
      age: {name: 'Age', type: 'number'},
      gender: {
        name: 'Gender',
        type: 'category',
        options: [
          {name: 'Male', value: 'm'},
          {name: 'Female', value: 'f'}
        ]
      }
    }
  }
}

Custom Input Components

app.component.html
<query-builder [(ngModel)]='query' [config]='config'>
  <ng-container *queryInput="let rule; type: 'date'">
    <custom-datepicker [(ngModel)]="rule.value"></custom-datepicker>
  </ng-container>
</query-builder>
app.component.ts
query = {
  condition: 'and',
  rules: [
    {field: 'birthday', operator: '=', value: new Date()}
  ]
};

config: QueryBuilderConfig = {
  fields: {
    birthday: {name: 'Birthday', type: 'date', operators: ['=', '<=', '>']
      defaultValue: (() => return new Date())
    },
  }
}

Custom Styling (with Bootstrap 4)

Bootstrap demo.

app.component.html
<query-builder [(ngModel)]='query' [config]='config' [classNames]='classNames'></query-builder>
app.component.ts
classNames: QueryBuilderClassNames = {
  removeIcon: 'fa fa-minus',
  addIcon: 'fa fa-plus',
  arrowIcon: 'fa fa-chevron-right px-2',
  button: 'btn',
  buttonGroup: 'btn-group',
  rightAlign: 'order-12 ml-auto',
  switchRow: 'd-flex px-2',
  switchGroup: 'd-flex align-items-center',
  switchRadio: 'custom-control-input',
  switchLabel: 'custom-control-label',
  switchControl: 'custom-control custom-radio custom-control-inline',
  row: 'row p-2 m-1',
  rule: 'border',
  ruleSet: 'border',
  invalidRuleSet: 'alert alert-danger',
  emptyWarning: 'text-danger mx-auto',
  operatorControl: 'form-control',
  operatorControlSize: 'col-auto pr-0',
  fieldControl: 'form-control',
  fieldControlSize: 'col-auto pr-0',
  entityControl: 'form-control',
  entityControlSize: 'col-auto pr-0',
  inputControl: 'form-control',
  inputControlSize: 'col-auto'
}

Customizing with Angular Material

Example of how you can completely customize the query component with another library like Angular Material. For the full example, please look at the source code provided in the demo.

app.component.html

<query-builder [(ngModel)]='query' [config]='config'>
  <ng-container *queryButtonGroup="let ruleset; let addRule=addRule; let addRuleSet=addRuleSet; let removeRuleSet=removeRuleSet">
    <button type="button" mat-button (click)="addRule()">+ Rule</button>
    <button type="button" mat-button (click)="addRuleSet()">+ Ruleset</button>
    <button type="button" mat-button (click)="removeRuleSet()">- Ruleset</button>
  </ng-container>
  <ng-container *queryRemoveButton="let rule; let removeRule=removeRule">
    <button type="button" mat-icon-button color="accent" (click)="removeRule(rule)">
      <mat-icon>remove</mat-icon>
    </button>
  </ng-container>
  <ng-container *querySwitchGroup="let ruleset">
    <mat-radio-group *ngIf="ruleset" [(ngModel)]="ruleset.condition">
      <mat-radio-button value="and">And</mat-radio-button>
      <mat-radio-button value="or">Or</mat-radio-button>
    </mat-radio-group>
  </ng-container>
  <ng-container *queryField="let rule; let fields=fields; let changeField=changeField">
    <mat-form-field>
      <mat-select [(ngModel)]="rule.field" (ngModelChange)="changeField($event, rule)">
        <mat-option *ngFor="let field of fields" [value]="field.value">{{field.name}}</mat-option>
      </mat-select>
    </mat-form-field>
  </ng-container>
  <ng-container *queryOperator="let rule; let operators=operators">
    <mat-form-field>
      <mat-select [(ngModel)]="rule.operator">
        <mat-option *ngFor="let value of operators" [value]="value">{{value}}</mat-option>
      </mat-select>
    </mat-form-field>
  </ng-container>
  <!-- Override input component for 'boolean' type -->
  <ng-container *queryInput="let rule; type: 'boolean'">
    <mat-checkbox [(ngModel)]="rule.value"></mat-checkbox>
  </ng-container>
  <!-- Override input component for 'category' type -->
  <ng-container *queryInput="let rule; let field=field; let options=options; type: 'category'">
    <mat-form-field>
      <mat-select [(ngModel)]="rule.value" [placeholder]="field.name">
        <mat-option *ngFor="let opt of options" [value]="opt.value">
          {{ opt.name }}
        </mat-option>
      </mat-select>
    </mat-form-field>
  </ng-container>
  ...
</query-builder>

Structural Directives

Use these directives to replace different parts of query builder with custom components. See example, or demo to see how it's done.

queryInput

Used to replace the input component. Specify the type/queryInputType to match specific field types to input template.

Context Name Type Description
$implicit Rule Current rule object which contains the field, value, and operator
field Field Current field object which contains the field's value and name
options Option[] List of options for the field, returned by getOptions
onChange () => void Callback to handle changes to the input component

queryOperator

Used to replace the query operator selection component.

Context Name Type Description
$implicit Rule Current rule object which contains the field, value, and operator
operators string[] List of operators for the field, returned by getOperators
onChange () => void Callback to handle changes to the operator component
type string Input binding specifying the field type mapped to this input template, specified using syntax in above example

queryField

Used this directive to replace the query field selection component.

Context Name Type Description
$implicit Rule Current rule object which contains the field, value, and operator
getFields (entityName: string) => void Get the list of fields corresponding to an entity

onChange () => void Callback to handle changes to the switch group component

queryArrowIcon

Directive to replace the expand arrow used in collapse/accordion mode of the query builder.
