[Fixed] How can I conditionally disable the routerLink attribute?


In my Angular 2 application I’m trying to disable a routerLink without any success. I’ve tried to handle the click event on the click event (with event.preventDefault() and event.stopPropagation()) but it doesn’t work.

How can I disable a routerLink?


Disable pointer-events on the element via CSS:

<a [routerlink]="xxx" [class.disabled]="disabled ? true : null">Link</a>

a.disabled {
   pointer-events: none;
   cursor: default;

See also Angular2, what is the correct way to disable an anchor element?


<a *ngIf="isEnabled" [routerlink]="xxx">Link</a>
<div *ngIf="!isEnabled">not a link</div>

or to easily reuse the disabled link template

<ng-template #disabledLink>
  <div *ngIf="!isEnabled">not a link</div>
<a *ngIf="isEnabled; else disabledLink" [routerLink]="xxx">Link</a>
