angular 2 error: Can't resolve all parameters for FormGroup

I am following Thoughtram's tutorial for FormBuilder http://blog.thoughtram.io/angular/2016/06/22/model-driven-forms-in-angular-2.html I copied the code and changed a few variable names. I'm using Angular 2.1.2, Typescript 2.0.8, and Angular Material2 (from Google). Atom Typescript says no error on any page. Nonetheless, I get errors at load, and the page does not load with this new code.

zone.js:388 Unhandled Promise rejection: Can't resolve all parameters for FormGroup: (?, ?, ?). ; Zone: <root> ; Task: Promise.then ; Value: Error: Can't resolve all parameters for FormGroup: (?, ?, ?).(…) Error: Can't resolve all parameters for FormGroup: (?, ?, ?).

HTML sample for apartment4Rent.component.html

<form [formGroup]="registerApartment4RentForm" (submit)="onSubmit($event)">
<md-input id="country" name="country" class="required" aria-labelledby="country" formControlName="country"
i18n-placeholder="select country placeholder" placeholder="Country" type="text" size="30" maxlength="30">

plus 4 more identically for state, city, street, and ZIPcode

AppComponent with constructor from the tutorial - in the app folder

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { FormBuilder, FormGroup } from '@angular/forms';
import { ReactiveFormsModule } from '@angular/forms';

moduleId: module.id,
selector: 'residence-app',
templateUrl: "components/navigation/headerFooter.html",
styleUrls: [ "components/navigation/styleHeaderFooter.css" ],
providers: [
export class AppComponent implements OnInit {
registerApartment4RentForm: FormGroup;
constructor(private formBuilder: FormBuilder) {}
ngOnInit() {
this.registerApartment4RentForm = this.formBuilder.group({
country: '',
stateProvince: '',
address: this.formBuilder.group({
streetAddress: '',
zipCode: '',
city: ''

The headerFooter.html in the templateUrl has some html for a header and a footer and


in between where apartment4Rent.component.html loads and appears before I tried this reactive form code. My directory structure is app/components/input/apartment4Rent.component(s)

What has to change to make reactive forms work?

Answer Source

Did you add the Angular reactive forms module as an import to your module? It looks like it's missing the services that are registered by that module.

(am on my phone, so sorry for the brief answer)


This is what I mean:

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@anglar/platform-browser';
import { ReactiveFormsModule } from '@angular/forms';

  imports: [BrowserModule, ReactiveFormsModule],
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule {}

Note the import of ReactiveFormsModule
