Angular i18nSelect Pipe

By Arvind Rai, December 29, 2021
This page will walk through Angular i18nSelect pipe example.
1. The i18nSelect pipe is a generic selector that displays the string that matches the current value.
2. The i18nSelect pipe is used as following.
{{ inputValue | i18nSelect : mapping }} 
inputValue : A string to be internationalized.
mapping : A mapping object of text to be displayed for different values of provided 'inputValue'.

3. Find the code snippet using i18nSelect pipe.
{{ selectedNumber | i18nSelect: {'1': 'One', '2': 'Two', '3': 'Three'} }} 
When the value of selectedNumber is '1', the output will be 'One' and
when the value of selectedNumber is '2', the output will be 'Two' and
when the value of selectedNumber is '3', the output will be 'Three' and
when the value of selectedNumber something else such as '5', the output will be empty string.

4. We can add other key in mapping that will output for other inputValue for which there is no value in mapping.
{{ selectedNumber | i18nSelect: {'1': 'One', '2': 'Two', '3': 'Three', 'other': 'invalid'} }} 
When the value of selectedNumber is '5', the output will be 'invalid'.
