Answer Source

You can conditionally set a class in angular that checks for a property.

<li *ngFor="let item of items" [class.highlighted]="item==='Mark'">{{item}}</li>

The item from the *ngFor is already accessible in the tag you are using it on. The [class.highlighted] is followed by the condition, in this case by simply checking if the current item equals Mark. So highlighted is only applied as a class if the condition is true.

Hope this helps.
