So, follow the below mentioned steps in order to create fullCalender and display dynamic events.

  • Step 2 is Installing the FullCalendar Library
  • Step 3 is Adding the Code on App.Module.ts File
  • Step 4 is Adding the Code on View File
  • Step 5 is Adding the Code On app.Component ts File
  • Step 6 is Creating the Dynamic Events in Angular
  • Step 7 is Starting the Angular App

Step 1 – Creating the New Angular App

First of all, we will see to open your terminal and execute the following command on it to install the Angular app:

ng new full-calender-app

Step 2 – Installing the FullCalendar Library

Further step is to install NPM package called @fullcalendar/angular. This will implement fullcalendar in angular 11 app. You can install the packages by executing the following commands on the terminal:

npm install @fullcalendar/angular 
 npm install @fullcalendar/daygrid
 npm install @fullcalendar/interaction

Step 3 – Adding Code on App.Module.ts File

The third step is also a simple one in which you visit src/app directory and open app.module.ts file. Afterwards, add the following lines into app.module.ts file:

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
// import modules
import { HttpClientModule } from '@angular/common/http';
import { FullCalendarModule } from '@fullcalendar/angular'; 
import interactionPlugin from '@fullcalendar/interaction';
import dayGridPlugin from '@fullcalendar/daygrid';
  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Step 4 – Adding Code on View File

Fourth step is to create fullcalendar in Angular 11 app. Then, visit src/app/ and app.component.html and update the following code into it:

<div class="container">
  <full-calendar [options]="calendarOptions"></full-calendar>

Step 5 – Adding Code On app.Component ts File

In this step, you need to visit the src/app directory and open app.component.ts. Afterwards, add the following code into component.ts file:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';
import { CalendarOptions } from '@fullcalendar/angular';
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.scss']
export class AppComponent {
    Events = [];
    calendarOptions: CalendarOptions;
    constructor(private httpClient: HttpClient) { }
    onDateClick(res) {
      alert('Clicked on date : ' + res.dateStr)
      setTimeout(() => {
        return this.httpClient.get('http://localhost:8888/event.php')
          .subscribe(res => {
      }, 2200);
      setTimeout(() => {
        this.calendarOptions = {
          initialView: 'dayGridMonth',
          dateClick: this.onDateClick.bind(this),
          events: this.Events
      }, 2500);

Step 6 – Creating Dynamic Events in Angular

In this step, you need to create event.php file and place the following code in the file:

header("Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *");
header("Access-Control-Allow-Methods: PUT, GET, POST");
header("Access-Control-Allow-Headers: Origin, X-Requested-With, Content-Type, Accept");
$calendarEvents = array('title' => 'Event name', 'start' => '2021-05-10');
echo json_encode($calendarEvents);

Step 7 – Starting the Angular App

The final step is to execute the following command on terminal to start Angular fullcalendar npm app:

ng serve
