How do I display a router parameter in an input box in Angular?


I currently have my routes set as follows in my Angular project:

const routes: Routes = [
  { path: 'defect', component: AppComponent },
  { path: 'defect/:start', component: DefectComponent }

Then in the TS of my DefectComponent I have:

//route is declared in my parameters as ActivatedRoute
ngOnInit(): void {
    let temp = this.route.snapshot.paramMap.get('start');
    if(temp) {
      this.timestamp.TestStart = temp;

In the html of my DefectComponent I have:

<input id="TestStart" [(ngModel)]="timestamp.TestStart" placeholder="Time">
  <button class="findSteps" (click)="createCases(timestamp)">
    Find Failed Cases

I figured this would autofill my input with the ‘start’ parameter when I call it with a url like:


because it was added to timestamp.TestStart onInit, but right now it still is just displaying "Time." Any ideas on what I’m doing wrong?

Thoughts I’ve already had:

  • Does ngModel come before the ngOnInit?
  • Am I somehow passing the parameter into the url wrong?
