Angular 2: Passing Data to Routes?

I am working on this angular2 project in which I am using ROUTER_DIRECTIVES to navigate from one component to other.

There are 2 components. i.e. PagesComponent & DesignerComponent.

I want to navigate from PagesComponent to DesignerComponent.

So far its routing correctly but I needed to pass page Object so designer can load that page object in itself.

I tried using RouteParams But its getting page object undefined.

below is my code:

pages.component.ts

import {Component, OnInit ,Input} from 'angular2/core';
import { GlobalObjectsService} from './../../shared/services/global/global.objects.service';
import { ROUTER_DIRECTIVES, RouteConfig } from 'angular2/router';
import { DesignerComponent } from './../../designer/designer.component';
import {RouteParams} from 'angular2/router';

@Component({
    selector: 'pages',    
    directives:[ROUTER_DIRECTIVES,],
    templateUrl: 'app/project-manager/pages/pages.component.html'
})
@RouteConfig([
  { path: '/',name: 'Designer',component: DesignerComponent }      
])

export class PagesComponent implements OnInit {
@Input() pages:any;
public selectedWorkspace:any;    
constructor(private globalObjectsService:GlobalObjectsService) {
    this.selectedWorkspace=this.globalObjectsService.selectedWorkspace;                    
}
ngOnInit() { }   
}

In the html, I am doing following:

<scrollable height="300" class="list-group" style="overflow-y: auto; width: auto; height: 200px;" *ngFor="#page of pages">
    {{page.name}}<a [routerLink]="['Designer',{page: page}]" title="Page Designer"><i class="fa fa-edit"></i></a>
</scrollable>

In the DesignerComponent constructor I have done the following:

constructor(params: RouteParams) {
    this.page = params.get('page');
    console.log(this.page);//undefined
}

So far its routing correctly to designer, but when I am trying to access page Object in designer then its showing undefined. Any solutions?

You can't pass objects using router params, only strings because it needs to be reflected in the URL. It would be probably a better approach to use a shared service to pass data around between routed components anyway.

The old router allows to pass data but the new (RC.1) router doesn't yet.

Update

data was re-introduced in RC.4 How do I pass data in Angular 2 components while using Routing?

Answer

It changes in angular 2.1.0

In something.module.ts

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common';
import { BlogComponent } from './blog.component';
import { AddComponent } from './add/add.component';
import { EditComponent } from './edit/edit.component';
import { RouterModule } from '@angular/router';
import { MaterialModule } from '@angular/material';
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
const routes = [
  {
    path: '',
    component: BlogComponent
  },
  {
    path: 'add',
    component: AddComponent
  },
  {
    path: 'edit/:id',
    component: EditComponent,
    data: {
      type: 'edit'
    }
  }

];
@NgModule({
  imports: [
    CommonModule,
    RouterModule.forChild(routes),
    MaterialModule.forRoot(),
    FormsModule
  ],
  declarations: [BlogComponent, EditComponent, AddComponent]
})
export class BlogModule { }

To get the data or params in edit component

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { Router, ActivatedRoute, Params, Data } from '@angular/router';
@Component({
  selector: 'app-edit',
  templateUrl: './edit.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./edit.component.css']
})
export class EditComponent implements OnInit {
  constructor(
    private route: ActivatedRoute,
    private router: Router

  ) { }
  ngOnInit() {

    this.route.snapshot.params['id'];
    this.route.snapshot.data['type'];

  }
}
Answer

You can do this:

app-routing-modules.ts:

import { NgModule                  }    from '@angular/core';
import { RouterModule, Routes      }    from '@angular/router';
import { PowerBoosterComponent     }    from './component/power-booster.component';


export const routes: Routes = [
  { path:  'pipeexamples',component: PowerBoosterComponent, 
data:{  name:'shubham' } },
    ];
    @NgModule({
      imports: [ RouterModule.forRoot(routes) ],
      exports: [ RouterModule ]
    })
    export class AppRoutingModule {}

In this above route, I want to send data via a pipeexamples path to PowerBoosterComponent.So now I can receive this data in PowerBoosterComponent like this:

power-booster-component.ts

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { Router, ActivatedRoute, Params, Data } from '@angular/router';

@Component({
  selector: 'power-booster',
  template: `
    <h2>Power Booster</h2>`
})

export class PowerBoosterComponent implements OnInit {
  constructor(
    private route: ActivatedRoute,
    private router: Router

  ) { }
  ngOnInit() {
    //this.route.snapshot.data['name']
    console.log("Data via params: ",this.route.snapshot.data['name']);
  }
}

So you can get the data by this.route.snapshot.data['name'].

Answer

1. Set up your routes to accept data

{
    path: 'some-route',
    loadChildren: 
      () => import(
        './some-component/some-component.module'
      ).then(
        m => m.SomeComponentModule
      ),
    data: {
      key: 'value',
      ...
    },
}

2. Navigate to route:

From HTML:

<a [routerLink]=['/some-component', { key: 'value', ... }> ... </a>

Or from Typescript:

import {Router} from '@angular/router';

...

 this.router.navigate(
    [
       '/some-component',
       {
          key: 'value',
          ...
       }
    ]
 );

3. Get data from route

import {ActivatedRoute} from '@angular/router';

...

this.value = this.route.snapshot.params['key'];
