Create a custom directive on angular 2.

If you want to create a own custom directive then you have to follow this steps.

Here, i have created a directive with name fontcolor.directive.ts . its change the color and underline when some mouse event occurs.

First, Generate a directive using Angular CLI using below coomand.
ng generate fontcolor then you push below code.

You can do it manually with below code.

import { Directive, HostListener, ElementRef, Renderer } from ‘@angular/core’;
  selector: ‘[appFontcolor]’ // this is name of directive or you can say selector
export class FontcolorDirective {
        private renderer: Renderer,
        private el: ElementRef
     @HostListener(‘mouseenter’) onMouseEnter() { // event decleare
    @HostListener(‘mouseleave’) onMouseLeave() { // event decleare
    hover(shouldUnderline: boolean){
        this.renderer.setElementStyle(this.el.nativeElement, ‘text-decoration’, ‘underline’);
        this.renderer.setElementStyle(this.el.nativeElement, ‘color’, ‘#EEBA33’);
        } else {
    this.renderer.setElementStyle(this.el.nativeElement, ‘text-decoration’, ‘none’);
    this.renderer.setElementStyle(this.el.nativeElement, ‘color’, ‘#000’);
Next, you import and use the directive on app.module.ts file to use this.
import { FontcolorDirective } from ‘./fontcolor.directive’;
declarations: [
Next, you have to use this on component html page using directive selector.
<div appFontcolor> Helloworld !!! </div>
