Is It Possible To Swap From ValueChanges To (blur) In Order To Make A Request?

- 1 answer

I´m asking this because I started taking some basic angular lessons and I´m using some filters at the moment that send the request to firebase while I´m typing with ValueChanges:

This is the imput that is used to search:

<input
  type="search"
  placeholder="Teclee un proveedor..."
  [formControl]="campoBusqueda"
  />

And this is the code I have in ngOnInit() to work with it:

this.campoBusqueda = new FormControl();
this.campoBusqueda.valueChanges.subscribe(term => {
  this.busqueda = term;
  this.cargando = true;
  if (this.busqueda.length !== 0) {
    this.proveedoresService
      .getProveedoresSearch(this.busqueda)
      .subscribe(proveedores => {
        this.proveedores = [];
        // tslint:disable-next-line: forin
        for (const id$ in proveedores) {
          const p = proveedores[id$];
          p.id$ = id$;
          this.proveedores.push(proveedores[id$]);
        }
        if (this.proveedores.length < 1 && this.busqueda.length >= 1) {
          this.noresultados = true;
          this.proveedoresService
            .getProveedores()
            .subscribe( proveedores => {
              this.proveedores = [];
              // tslint:disable-next-line: forin
              for (const id$ in proveedores) {
                const p = proveedores[id$];
                p.id$ = id$;
                this.proveedores.push(proveedores[id$]);
              }
            });
        } else {
          this.noresultados = false;
        }
      });
    this.cargando = false;
    this.resultados = true;
  } else {
    this.proveedores = [];
    this.cargando = false;
    this.resultados = false;
  }
});

Now what I´d like to know is if it would be possible to use (blur):

    <input
    type="search"
    placeholder="Teclee un proveedor..."
    [formControl]="campoBusqueda"
    (blur)="myNewSearchMethod()"
    />

To make the request after the user gets the focus out of the input instead of making it everytime the user types something in the input.

My myNewSearchMethod() that I´m using right know is :

    myNewSearchMethod() {
    this.campoBusqueda = new FormControl();
    this.busqueda = this.campoBusqueda.value;
    this.cargando = true;
    if (this.busqueda.length !== 0) {
        this.proveedoresService
          .getProveedoresSearch(this.busqueda)
          .subscribe(proveedores => {
            this.proveedores = [];
            // tslint:disable-next-line: forin
            for (const id$ in proveedores) {
              const p = proveedores[id$];
              p.id$ = id$;
              this.proveedores.push(proveedores[id$]);
            }
            if (this.proveedores.length < 1 && this.busqueda.length >= 1) {
              this.noresultados = true;
              this.proveedoresService
                .getProveedores()
                .subscribe( proveedores => {
                  this.proveedores = [];
                  // tslint:disable-next-line: forin
                  for (const id$ in proveedores) {
                    const p = proveedores[id$];
                    p.id$ = id$;
                    this.proveedores.push(proveedores[id$]);
                  }
                });
            } else {
              this.noresultados = false;
            }
          });
        this.cargando = false;
        this.resultados = true;
      } else {
        this.proveedores = [];
        this.cargando = false;
        this.resultados = false;
      };
  }

The problem right now is that when I´m using (blur) the value of the input disapears after tabbing or clicking out of the input giving a null value when it reached the first if if (this.busqueda.length !== 0) { giving the next stacktrace in console:

Answer

Use updateOn FormHooks

Reports the update strategy of the AbstractControl (meaning the event on which the control updates itself). Possible values: 'change' | 'blur' | 'submit' Default value: 'change

component.ts

 campoBusqueda = new FormControl('',{
    updateOn:'blur'
  });
