valueChange EventEmitter

Fires each time the value is changed—
when the component is blurred or the value is cleared through the Clear button.
For more details, refer to the example on events.

When the value of the component is changed programmatically through its API or form binding

potentially causing a mix-up with the built-in valueChange mechanisms of the ngModel or formControl bindings.
