Dynamically pass parameters into functions directly from the view


I have an array of data inside the variable “data” that i’m iterating through in the view, i’m basically printing a series of pictures and i want to be able to click on them and trigger the “showFullScreenImage()” function that in turn opens the hd version of the picture in full screen.

data contains some stuff, a normal quality url that i use as src for the img tag and an hdurl that i want to send as parameter to the function.

I can’t of course use the double curly brackets like this. What’s the proper way to deal with this?


<ion-content padding>
  <ion-card padding *ngFor="let i of data">

    <img (click)="showFullScreenImage({{ i?.hdurl }})" class="stile-immagine" src="{{ i?.url }}"/>





showFullScreenImage(i.hdurl). Deal with the work the Elvis operator is doing in the controller instead.


The main reason why i still use the Elvis operator is because Ionic’s behaviour seems random at times.

I tried most of the suggestions you guys gave me here but sometimes the error keeps popping up. It looks like the view is faster than the data, but just sometimes.

That is known as a race condition. You must program defensively, so that all properties referenced by templates are always in a sane and usable state.


Yeah, that’s fundamental to web programming. Personally, I usually display Observables on pages, not “regular” objects. That way, the page renders immediately, and the Observables fill in as they arrive from the stream.
