Angular Material List with Checkbox

By Arvind Rai, April 03, 2021
Angular material provides selection list using mat-selection-list and mat-list-option. The list options are displayed with checkbox and its label. The selection of list can be single or multiple. We can also display a list option as selected or disabled.
To work with Material List we need to import MatListModule in application module.
import { MatListModule } from '@angular/material/list'; 
Here on this page, we will create Material list example with checkbox in detail.
