Getting the current route in Angular

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to get the current route path in angular.

To get the current route path, we need to import a Router object from the @angular/router package and it has url property which is holding the route path.

Here is an example:

contact.component.ts
import { Component, OnInit } from "@angular/core";
import { Router } from "@angular/router";
@Component({
  selector: "app-contact",
  templateUrl: "./contact.component.html",
  styleUrls: ["./contact.component.css"],
})

export class ContactComponent implements OnInit {

  // injecting route object into the contact component
  constructor(private route: Router) {}
  ngOnInit() {
      console.log(this.route.url);  }

}

In the above code, we first imported a Router from the “@angular/router” package and injected it into the contact component.

Inside the ngOnInit() method, we are accessing the route path using this.route.url property.

Now, run the angular development server and navigate to the localhost:4200/contact, you will see the current route in the browser console like this.

/contact
