Association

You can associate the Label with a Kendo UI for Angular or other Angular component, as well as with an HTML element.

To achieve this outcome, wrap the HTML element or Angular component within a <kendo-label> element, or associate them by using the for input property.

The Label supports association with the following components and elements:

Kendo UI for Angular Components

To provide the label functionality for Kendo UI for Angular components, use either of the following approaches:

  • Wrap the component within a <kendo-label> element, or
  • Associate it through the for property by providing a template reference variable that points to the component.

The following example demonstrates various components that are associated with a Label.

Other Angular Components

To associate your own Angular components with the Kendo UI for Angular Label, use either of the following approaches:

  • Ensure that the components have a method named focus. This method will be invoked on a label click, and will hold the custom logic to programmatically focus the necessary internal HTML element.
  • Associate the components through the for property by providing a template reference variable that points to the component.

As long as the custom component has the proper template reference variable binding, you can place it either within or outside the <kendo-label></kendo-label> tag.

The following example demonstrates a custom input component that is associated with a Label.

  • Wrap the HTML element within a <kendo-label> element, or
  • Associate them through the for property by providing the id value of the HTML element or a template reference variable that points to it.

This following example demonstrates the approaches in action.
