Angular 17 Password Show/Hide with Eye Icon

Angular 17 Password Show/Hide with Eye Icon

In modern web development, user experience plays a crucial role in determining the success of an application. One aspect of user experience involves providing intuitive features like password show/hide functionality. Angular 17, a popular JavaScript framework, offers a convenient way to implement this feature seamlessly. In this tutorial, we'll walk through the process of integrating a password show/hide toggle functionality with an eye icon using Angular 17.


  • Basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • Familiarity with Angular 17 framework and Angular 17 CLI.

Step 1: Set Up Your Angular 17 Project

If you haven't already installed Angular 17 CLI, you can do so by running the following command:

npm install -g @angular/cli

Create a new Angular project using Angular 17 CLI:

ng new angular-password-show-hide
cd angular-password-show-hide

Step 2: Create a New Angular 17 Component

Generate a new Angular 17 component to handle the password show/hide functionality:

ng generate component password-toggle

Step 3: Implement Password Toggle Functionality

Navigate to the newly created component file password-toggle.component.ts and update it with the following code:

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

  selector: 'app-password-toggle',
  templateUrl: './password-toggle.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./password-toggle.component.css']
export class PasswordToggleComponent {
  hide = true;

  toggleVisibility(): void {
    this.hide = !this.hide;

Step 4: Create HTML Template

Navigate to password-toggle.component.html and add the following HTML markup:

<div class="password-container">
  <input type="" placeholder="Enter Password">
  <button (click)="toggleVisibility()">
    <i class="fa" [ngClass]="{'fa-eye': hide, 'fa-eye-slash': !hide}"></i>

Step 5: Style the Component (Optional)

Navigate to password-toggle.component.css and add styles to customize the appearance of the password input and toggle button according to your design preferences.

Step 6: Include Font Awesome Icons (Optional)

If you're using Font Awesome icons, make sure to include the Font Awesome CSS file in your project's index.html:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">

Step 7: Add the Password Toggle Component to Your Application

Open app.component.html and include the password toggle component:


Step 8: Run Your Angular 17 Application

Save all changes and run your Angular 17 application using the following command:

ng serve

Visit http://localhost:4200 in your web browser to see the password show/hide functionality in action.


In this tutorial, you've learned how to implement the password show/hide feature with an eye icon using Angular 17. This feature enhances user experience by providing users with the option to toggle password visibility, thus improving the usability and accessibility of your web application. Experiment with different styling and customization options to tailor the feature according to your project requirements. Happy coding!
