# EventEmitter Service

# Catching the event

Create a service-

import {EventEmitter} from 'angular2/core';
export class NavService {
    navchange: EventEmitter<number> = new EventEmitter();
    constructor() {}
    emitNavChangeEvent(number) {
        this.navchange.emit(number);
    }
    getNavChangeEmitter() {
        return this.navchange;
    }
}

Create a component to use the service-

import {Component} from 'angular2/core';
import {NavService} from '../services/NavService';

@Component({
    selector: 'obs-comp',
    template: `obs component, item: {{item}}`
    })
    export class ObservingComponent {
    item: number = 0;
    subscription: any;
    constructor(private navService:NavService) {}
    ngOnInit() {
        this.subscription = this.navService.getNavChangeEmitter()
        .subscribe(item => this.selectedNavItem(item));
    }
    selectedNavItem(item: number) {
        this.item = item;
    }
    ngOnDestroy() {
        this.subscription.unsubscribe();
    }
}

@Component({
    selector: 'my-nav',
    template:`
        <div class="nav-item" (click)="selectedNavItem(1)">nav 1 (click me)</div>
        <div class="nav-item" (click)="selectedNavItem(2)">nav 2 (click me)</div>
    `,
})
export class Navigation {
    item = 1;
    constructor(private navService:NavService) {}
    selectedNavItem(item: number) {
        console.log('selected nav item ' + item);
        this.navService.emitNavChangeEvent(item);
    }
}

# Class Component

@Component({
  selector: 'zippy',
  template: `
  <div class="zippy">
    <div (click)="toggle()">Toggle</div>
    <div [hidden]="!visible">
      <ng-content></ng-content>
    </div>
 </div>`})
export class Zippy {
  visible: boolean = true;
  @Output() open: EventEmitter<any> = new EventEmitter();
  @Output() close: EventEmitter<any> = new EventEmitter();
  toggle() {
    this.visible = !this.visible;
    if (this.visible) {
      this.open.emit(null);
    } else {
      this.close.emit(null);
    }
  }
}

# Class Overview

    constructor(isAsync?: boolean)
    emit(value?: T)
    subscribe(generatorOrNext?: any, error?: any, complete?: any) : any
}
