Installation

Install NPM Dependencies

Follow the quick-start for ngx-formly and use @ngx-formly/material as the UI library. Finally run npm i ngx-formly-material-file.

Icons

ngx-formly-material-file uses material icons as a default. Add the following entry to the assets array in your angular.json to serve the icons:

{ 
   "glob":"**/*",
   "input":"./node_modules/ngx-formly-material-file/assets/svgs",
   "output":"/assets/svgs/"
}

Configure the App Module

...
import { LOCALE_ID, NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { FileTypeComponent, FileTypeModule, FileTypeValidationMessages } from 'ngx-formly-material-file';
...
 
export const APP_LOCALE_ID = 'en-US';
 
@NgModule({
  imports: [
    ...
    FileTypeModule.forRoot(),
    FormlyModule.forRoot({
      validationMessages: new FileTypeValidationMessages(APP_LOCALE_ID).validationMessages,
      types: [
        { name: 'file', component: FileTypeComponent },
      ],
    })
    ...
  ],
  ...
  providers[{ provide: LOCALE_ID, useValue: APP_LOCALE_ID }, ...],
})
export class AppModule {}

Use FileTypeComponent

ngx-formly-material-file adds an array of SelectedFile to the form model.

export interface SelectedFile {
 
  file: File;
 
  location?: string;
 
}

If you specify a uploadUrl in the templateOptions, the files will be uploaded using a FormData POST request. The default parameter name is file but it can be changed by setting paramName in the templateOptions. If the server returns a Location header, it will be present in the SelectedFile.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { FormGroup } from '@angular/forms';
import { FormlyFieldConfig, FormlyFormOptions } from '@ngx-formly/core';
import { FileListValidators, FileValidators } from 'ngx-formly-material-file';
 
@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
})
export class AppComponent {
 
  form = new FormGroup({});
 
  model: any = {};
 
  options: FormlyFormOptions = {};
 
  fields: FormlyFieldConfig[] = [
    {
      key: 'pictures',
      type: 'file',
      templateOptions: {
        label: 'Pictures',
        description: 'Upload some nice pictures',
        required: true,
        uploadUrl: '/upload'
      },
      validators: {
        validation: [
          FileListValidators.minFiles(2),
          FileListValidators.maxFiles(4),
          FileListValidators.totalFilesize(400 * 1000)
        ]
      },
      fieldArray: {
        validators: {
          validation: [
            FileValidators.minFilenameLength(1),
            FileValidators.maxFilenameLength(50),
            FileValidators.fileExtension(['pdf', 'txt', 'png']),
            FileValidators.filesize(1000 * 1000),
            FileValidators.filenameForbiddenCharacters(['/'])
          ]
        }
      }
    },
  ];
 
}

Customization

Icons

You can replace the default material icons by using the MatIconRegistry. Here is an example:

...
export class AppModule {
  constructor(matIconRegistry: MatIconRegistry, sanitizer: DomSanitizer) {
    matIconRegistry.addSvgIconInNamespace('fileType', 'fileDrop', sanitizer.bypassSecurityTrustResourceUrl('assets/svgs/solid/file-import.svg'));
    matIconRegistry.addSvgIconInNamespace('fileType', 'file', sanitizer.bypassSecurityTrustResourceUrl('assets/svgs/solid/file.svg'));
    matIconRegistry.addSvgIconInNamespace('fileType', 'fileUpload', sanitizer.bypassSecurityTrustResourceUrl('assets/svgs/solid/file-upload.svg'));
    matIconRegistry.addSvgIconInNamespace('fileType', 'fileRemove', sanitizer.bypassSecurityTrustResourceUrl('assets/svgs/solid/times.svg'));
  }
}

Validation messages

The default validation messages can be overwritten as shown in this example:

...
import { LOCALE_ID, NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { FileTypeComponent, FileTypeModule, FileTypeValidationMessages } from 'ngx-formly-material-file';
...
 
export const APP_LOCALE_ID = 'en-US';
 
@NgModule({
  imports: [
    ...
    FileTypeModule.forRoot(),
    FormlyModule.forRoot({
      validationMessages: new FileTypeValidationMessages(APP_LOCALE_ID).validationMessages.concat([
        { name: 'maxFilenameLength', message: 'my custom message' },
        { name: 'minFilenameLength', message: 'my custom message' },
        { name: 'fileExtension', message: 'my custom message' },
        { name: 'filesize', message: '2do' },
        { name: 'filenameForbiddenCharacters', message: 'my custom message' },
        { name: 'minFiles', message: 'my custom message' },
        { name: 'maxFiles', message: '2do' },
        { name: 'totalFilesize', message: 'my custom message' },
        { name: 'uploadError', message: 'my custom message' }
      ]),
      types: [
        { name: 'file', component: FileTypeComponent },
      ],
    })
    ...
  ],
  ...
  providers[{ provide: LOCALE_ID, useValue: APP_LOCALE_ID }, ...],
})
export class AppModule {}

Labels

The labels of the dropzone and the button as well as the tooltip of the remove-file-icon can be changed:

FileTypeModule.forRoot({
  dropzoneText: 'my custom label',
  browseFilesButtonText: 'my custom label',
  removeFileTooltip: 'my custom label'
})
