Using Pipes
Pipes are like a transform, they take data as input and transforms it to the desired output. A basic example of using pipes is shown below:
import { Component } from '@angular/core';
@Component({
selector: 'product-price',
template: `<p>Total price of product is {{ price | currency }}</p>`
})
export class ProductPrice {
price = 100.1234;
}

Passing Parameters

A pipe can accept optional parameters to modify the output. To pass parameters to a pipe, simply add a colon and the parameter value to the end of the pipe expression:
pipeName: parameterValue
You can also pass multiple parameters this way:
pipeName: parameter1: parameter2
import { Component } from '@angular/core';
@Component({
selector: 'app-root',
template: '<p>Total price of product is {{ price | currency: "CAD": true: "1.2-4" }}</p>'
})
export class AppComponent {
price = 100.123456;
}
In the above example, we are using CurrencyPipe, DecimalPipe and LowerCasePipe together to display product prices appropriately. The price value of 100.123456 is displayed as ca$100.1235 using both pipes in conjunction.

Chaining Pipes

We can chain pipes together to make use of multiple pipes in one expression.
import { Component } from '@angular/core';
@Component({
selector: 'app-root',
template: '<p>Total price of product is {{ price | currency: "CAD": true: "1.2-4" | lowercase }}</p>'
})
export class ProductPrice {
price = 100.123456;
}
