Angular Input Directive - API

Modules used

In order to speed up your application, you can choose to import only the modules you actually need, instead of importing the entire MDB Angular library. Remember that importing the entire library, and immediately afterwards a specific module, is bad practice, and can cause application errors.

          import { InputsModule, WavesModule } from 'ng-uikit-pro-standard';
          import { InputsModule, WavesModule } from 'angular-bootstrap-md';
