How do you select an element with in a component template?

You can use @ViewChild directive to access elements in the view directly. Let's take input element with a reference,

<input #uname />

and define view child directive and access it in ngAfterViewInit lifecycle hook

@ViewChild('uname') input;
ngAfterViewInit() {
console.log(this.input.nativeElement.value);
}
