In this tutorial we will learn to use ngIf, ngif else and elseif. if else is used to make conditional statement in template same as we can also use if else. As we all programmers know if or if else condition is used to create conditional statements so in angular template we can also use the if else but for elseif there is no direct way but we can use alternate way.

ngIf is a structural directive which is used to control the layout of dom by adding and removing the content of dom. You can read more about structural directive here What is directives and types of directive in angular?

Here is the syntax of *ngIf

<ng-container *ngIf="count == 1"></ng-container>

Syntax of *ngIf else

<ng-container *ngIf="count === 1;else second"></ng-container>
<ng-template #second>
    <ng-container *ngIf="count === 2"></ng-container>

Syntax of *ngIf elseif

<ng-container *ngIf="count === 1;else second"></ng-container>
<ng-template #second>
    <ng-container *ngIf="count === 2;else third"></ng-container>
<ng-template #third></ng-template>

You can also achieve the same as below

<ng-container *ngIf="count === 1;"></ng-container>
<ng-container *ngIf="count === 2"></ng-container>
<ng-container *ngIf="count<0"></ng-container>

Let’s understand use NgIf, if else and elseif with example

Step 1 : Create an angular app

First step is to setup an angular app using below command

ng new example-component

Step 2: Create a Component

Create a component so we can add conditional statements

ng g c test-condition
import { Component, OnInit, Input } from '@angular/core';

  selector: 'app-test-condition',
  templateUrl: './test-condition.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./test-condition.component.css']
export class TestConditionComponent implements OnInit {
    count:number =1;

  constructor() {



Step 3 : Create template and add conditional *ngIf

Now, add simple html template with *ngif

<h1>use NgIf if else and elseif in angular- ReaderStacks</h1>
<h2>Example 1</h2>
<ng-container *ngIf="count === 1;else second"> Condition 1 </ng-container>
<ng-template #second>
    <ng-container *ngIf="count === 2;else third" >Condition 2 </ng-container>
<ng-template #third> Condition 3</ng-template>

<h2>Example 2</h2>
<!-- count = 5 -->
<ng-container *ngIf="count >= 1 && count <= 3; then elseif3"></ng-container>
<ng-container *ngIf="count >= 4 && count <= 6; then elseif4"></ng-container>
<ng-container *ngIf="count >= 7; then elseif5"></ng-container>

<!-- If Statement -->
<ng-template #elseif3>
    count between 1 and 3
<!-- If Else Statement -->
<ng-template #elseif4>
     count between 4 and 6
<!-- Else Statement -->
<ng-template #elseif5>
     count greater than 7
