What Every CIO Should Know

This Intertech Executive Brief provides insight into selecting an excellent consulting firm that fits your particular needs and how to leverage that consulting relationship for maximum value.

Intertech’s preferred method of project delivery is to use an Agile or Scrum process. An Agile software engineering approach often results in more accountability and less waste for problem analysis, solution design, coding, testing, and product release. The continuous feedback loop fostered with the Agile approach illuminates problems earlier than with other methodologies and puts working product out sooner.

Angular Development #9 – Reusable Sub-Forms

Angular’s reactive forms are a great way to quickly build complex and robust forms. However, the design tends to force developers to build large components that encompass the entire form and can make it challenging to re-use or nest sub-forms efficiently. By changing the way you think about sections of forms and leveraging ControlValueAccessor, it can become easy to build customizable form sections that can be shared between many forms in an application. This article heavily relies upon the information in the Control Value Accessor article, so take the time to review that information first.

Forms are a critical component to most any web application. While most forms can be completed with the standard browser inputs, sometimes a more dynamic or thematic input can make the difference in a user interface. Angular provides the ControlValueAccessor interface to provide developers the tools to seamlessly insert custom built components that can function just as a standard input. But as we will see, the ControlValueAccessor can provide much more than just custom inputs – it can serve as a gateway to better form organization and reusability within an application.
