Ion-slides loop property doesn't work with ngFor

Hi everyone I am currently testing the “ion-slides” component with ngFor loop for my ionic-angular app and I have a problem; I followed the instruction from documentation
(https://ionicframework.com/docs/api/slides) and https://swiperjs.com/api/
and when I dont use the ngFor it works fine but ngFor loop it doesn’t work and the slide locks at the end of the array

my html code:

<ion-slides #theSlides [options]="slideOpts">
        <ion-slide *ngFor="let peer of peers" >
          <p>peer</p>
        </ion-slide>
</ion-slides>
<img class="nextIcon" src="../../assets/imgs/nextIcon/nextIcon@3x.png (click)="moveToNext(theSlides)">
    <img class="prevIcon" src="../../assets/imgs/prevIcon/prevIcon@3x.png" 
        (click)="moveToPrev(theSlides)">

<ion-button (click)="click()"></ion-button>

and .ts

@ViewChild('theSlides' , {  static: false }) slides: IonSlides;
peers:any[] = []

  slideOpts = {
    loop: true,
    slidesPerView: 3,
  };
  

  constructor() {}


  moveToNext(slides) {
    slides.slideNext()
 }

  moveToPrev(slides) {
    slides.slidePrev()
  }

  click () {
    var peer
    this.peers.push(peer)
  }

  

the other properties of slideOpts works like a charm but not loop property.
I appreciate if you can tell what is wrong here with my code thank you.

Hello @Taraa,
Please try below code. I tested on Ionic 5 it works. You can use h1 or img and make some style changes.

TS Code

slides = [
    { name: "Slide 1", imgUrl: "https://aws1.discourse-cdn.com/ionicframework/original/3X/9/4/94850a46742204751c28bbe6d78168d7e870ce80.png" },
    { name: "Slide 2", imgUrl: "https://aws1.discourse-cdn.com/ionicframework/original/3X/9/4/94850a46742204751c28bbe6d78168d7e870ce80.png" },
    { name: "Slide 3", imgUrl: "https://aws1.discourse-cdn.com/ionicframework/original/3X/9/4/94850a46742204751c28bbe6d78168d7e870ce80.png" }
  ]
  slideOpts = {
    initialSlide: 1,
    speed: 400
  };

HTML Code:

<ion-slides pager="true" [options]="slideOpts">
        <ion-slide *ngFor="let slide of slides">
            <h1>{{slide.name}}</h1>
            <img src="{{slide.imgUrl}}" />
        </ion-slide>
    </ion-slides>

hi @aalbayrak thanks for your reply and it works but there is a problem here for me; in my app the objects of “slides” array are dynamic and i have to push them to array whenever they are ready from server so i cant set the name and source like here in your code

Please, Could you share response the “array || Object” from the server. If we see the type of response, we can solve it.(Just write console.log(response) after you call http get method)

there is service that i use and the peer object is creating successfuly and shows properly in slider
this is my actual code:

peers:any[] = []

@ViewChild('theSlides' , {  static: false }) slides: IonSlides;
slideOpts = {
loop: true,
    };
this.myService.peer_profile_ready.pipe(
      takeUntil(self.unsubscribe$)
  ).subscribe(
      peer => {
         
          var peer = {
              id: 1,
              firstname: peer.firstname
              lastname: peer.lastName,
              status: peer.status,
              icon: '../../assets/imgs/userIcon/userIcon@3x.png',
              
          }
              this.peers.push(peer)
{)

            

and .html

<ion-slides #theSlides [options]="slideOpts"   id="peerSlide">
        
       <ion-slide *ngFor="let peer of peers;let i = index">
           <img id="{{'x' + i}}" class="peerIcon" [src]="peer.icon"  >
           <p class="peerFirstname">{{peer.firstname}}</p>
           <p class="peerLastname">{{peer.lastname}}</p>
           <p class="peerStatus">{{peer.status}}</p>
         
       </ion-slide>
        </ion-slides>

Is the problem solved ?

the slider is showing every thing fine but loop property of slideOpts doesn’t work and it locks at the end of array

Add loop:true to your slide options
If not solved please check log to check if there is error on end.

slideOpts = {
    initialSlide: 1,
    loop: true,
    speed: 400
  };
