NullError: method not found: 'myField' on null

If I only put in my template

Is there a way to initialize my object before

You can use the safe-navigation operator


to prevent errors while the model is not yet fully initialized

Alternatively you can wrap the elements with *ngIf to prevent them being rendered when the model is not yet initialized

<span *ngIf="myObject != null">{{myObject.myField}}</span>

This way you can cover bigger blocks or the whole template with a single *ngIf instead of adding ? everywhere.
