How do you detect route change in Angular?

In Angular7, you can subscribe to router to detect the changes. The subscription for router events would be as below,

this.router.events.subscribe((event: Event) => {});

Let's take a simple component to detect router changes

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { Router, Event, NavigationStart, NavigationEnd, NavigationError } from '@angular/router';
@Component({
selector: 'app-root',
template: `<router-outlet></router-outlet>`
})
export class AppComponent {
constructor(private router: Router) {
this.router.events.subscribe((event: Event) => {
if (event instanceof NavigationStart) {
// Show loading indicator and perform an action
}
if (event instanceof NavigationEnd) {
// Hide loading indicator and perform an action
}
if (event instanceof NavigationError) {
// Hide loading indicator and perform an action
console.log(event.error); // It logs an error for debugging
}
});
}
}
