Event Binding to Parent Components

Shows how to emit events from a child component using the EventEmitter, allowing parent components to handle changes and enforce one-way data flow.
// ChildComponent.js
import { EventEmitter } from '@angular/core';

export class ChildComponent {
    // Creating an instance of EventEmitter
    onAction = new EventEmitter();

    // Function to emit an event
    performAction() {
        // ... some code to handle the action ...

        // This is where the event with the payload is emitted
        this.onAction.emit({ payload: 'some data' });
This is the child component which includes EventEmitter to emit events. It defines an `onAction` EventEmitter and a `performAction` function that emits the event with a payload when called.
// ParentComponent.js
import { Component } from '@angular/core';

    selector: 'app-parent',
    template: `<app-child (onAction)="handleAction($event)"></app-child>`
export class ParentComponent {
    // Function to handle the event from the child
    handleAction(eventData) {
        console.log('Event received:', eventData);

        // ...code to handle event...
This is the parent component that uses the child component. It handles events emitted by the child component through the `handleAction` function, which is bound in the component's template to the child's `onAction` event.
