Angular 5 Template Reference variable

How to get user input from a template reference variable?

This is the other way to get the user data. It is also called #var.

“A template reference variable is mostly a reference to a DOM element within a template. It can also be a reference to Angular components or directives and others.”

It looks like this.
<input #name placeholder="Enter Name">

The following example shows to get user input from a template reference variable - template-reference.component.ts

import { ComponentOnInit } from '@angular/core';

  selector: 'app-template-reference',
  templateUrl: './template-reference.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./template-reference.component.css']
export class TemplateReferenceComponent implements OnInit {

  constructor() { }

  ngOnInit() {

And template-reference.component.html –
<div class="event">
  <button #keydownVal (keydown)="0"></button>
