Angular 2

When will ngInit be called? How would you make use of ngOnInit()?

In Angular 1.x, ngInit is called when template is re-rendered. In other words “ng-init” is called, when I take turns back to a page.

In Angular2, there is no “ng-init” but we can create a ways like this using the directive and ngOnInit class. Angular 2 provides life cycle hook ngOnInit by default.

The ngOnInit is invoked when the component is initialized and invoked only once when the directive is instantiated. It is a best practice to implement these life-cycle interfaces.

According to Angular2 Doc, “The ngOnInit is called right after the directive's data-bound properties have been checked for the first time, and before any of its children have been checked. It is invoked only once when the directive is instantiated.”

For example as,
import { Directive, Input } from '@angular/core';

  selector: '[ngInit]'

class NgInit {
  @Input() ngInit;

  ngOnInit() {
    if(this.ngInit) { this.ngInit(); }

In template as following,
<div *ngIf="Timer.dateTime === currentDateTime">
    <div *ngIf="Timer.checked" [ngInit]="Start"></div>
    <div *ngIf="!Timer.checked" [ngInit]="Stop"></div>
